Today on Modern Builds I’m using composite decking and angle aluminum to create raised garden boxes that will never give way to the elements. The color of the wood won’t fade and water won’t damage the decking material or make the aluminum legs rust. I also added a drip-irrigation to help conserve water and make watering these planters more convenient.
I used organic soil and plants in this DIY planter to celebrate Home Depot’s involvement with the Greenbuild Conference. They are sending me, alongside some other youtube Makers to Greenbuild to check out the eco-friendly materials and technologies being exhibited.
