    Very cool video came out amazing

  3. Moonwolf71 on May 5, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Good video, but how would have you got anyone to help you when most state are on lockdown and are to stay away from each other right now?

  4. Callee Harris on May 5, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    It turned out great! I know mom is happy with it.

  5. Antonio Claudio Michael on May 5, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    You could of also used 3/8 crown staples to hold the fencing wire on the walls m18 or the m12

    J’ai fais quelque chose de très similaire il y a 20 ans. Ça a tenu environ 3 ans avant de pourrir par le dessous.
    Je pense qu’il est préférable de créer des bacs surélevés et étanchéifiés.
    Jolie réalisation cependant.

    That looks amazing👊🏼

  8. Colter Thompson on May 5, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Dude this is a so awesome.

  9. Ray on May 5, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Amazing video, could this be converted into a greenhouse?

  10. Peter Hiscox on May 5, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    How deep did you dig the post holes?

  11. Deborah Elliott on May 5, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    here, clamps are your friend! Clamps can keep the board up while working on one side so that it remains level. Next time you build, use some clamps, it would make your job SOOOO much easier when doing things like this alone

  12. A Glimpse Inside on May 5, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    One more thing I would’ve probably done this whole project in flip-flops😂

  13. Barry Roberts on May 5, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Great build and looks amazing too. You used some quick clamps to hold the top piece before screwing it in place, why didn’t you use the quick clamps to hold the panel sides instead of the screws?

    Who doesn’t love a good screw?!

  15. Ronnie Freeman on May 5, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    How do I get the plans for this?

  16. Michael Wall on May 5, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    The boards did not flex in the middle when you added the dirt?

  17. Ms. Farmgirl on May 5, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    The problem being the mesh on the sides are so wide apart, any critter can simply fly in or crawl in. All the raised bed gardens who don’t have the upper decking are really pointless. Unless you don’t have ANY WILDLIFE in your yard at all. lol

  18. unit woodworking on May 5, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    This is a pretty large planter and garden and it looks sturdy, great job.

  19. Candy McClure on May 5, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    I would love to by the plans for this.

  20. schmick125 on May 5, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    What was your approximate cost of materials?

  21. Sonya Lipman on May 5, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    What type of wood did you use? Cedar, pine, pressure treated?

  22. Sony H K on May 5, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    👍

  23. Tom Ray on May 5, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    won’t the boards bow out really bad over time when the dirt settles and the lumber gets wet?

  24. Joe Dasilva on May 5, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Very nice!

  25. The Developing Dad Podcast on May 5, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Awesome video! This is above my pay grade right now but I’ll definitely try it once I’m more comfortable.

  26. Debda H7 on May 5, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Great job
    Thx for sharing 😊

  27. Maple Leaf on May 5, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    This video was excellent. You deserve a lot more thumbs up!

  28. JewDd* 89 on May 5, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Pls don’t include your patreon ppl in the middle of the video! We can’t see what you’re doing when your screen is 1/4 the size compared to the rest of the screen and besides the fact it’s distracting

  29. Shriya's Kutty Farm on May 5, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Awesome.Good video.Result of hard work. Give your valuable comments to improve our channel thank you. Stay connected and stay blessed

  30. Loren Broadstone on May 5, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I am interested in the keyhole garden but would like to use channel in place of the posts. This would be similar to a horizontal slip fence. My question is would the channel be strong enought for this structure?

  31. Layla Carnahan on May 5, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    What are the dimensions?

  32. Clinton Aguilera on May 5, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Can you change to 16×16 or wouldn’t you recommend that?

  33. The Grant Alexander on May 5, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Looks awesome and it’s always nice to get a good screw 🤣🤣 i want to make something like this for my yard one day.

  34. Ryan Kittell on May 5, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Nice garden box! What kind of paint and what color did you use? Thanks!

  35. One Of many on May 5, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Everyone have a backhoe in the kitchen drawer

  36. Julie Bliss on May 5, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Isn’t your wife your best friend?? Lol

  37. JL Wood Artistries on May 5, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Looks great. Nice job

  38. Barry Roberts on May 5, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Great video, i wanted an idea for an enclosed raised bed and found this video, i have now bought the plans off your website so all i need now is the cash for the wood, oh well at least i have the plans. Thanks.
    Stay Safe,

  39. Equine Prepper Freedom Homestead on May 5, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Love this plan raised garden area and thank you for sharing this wonderful video. Beautiful job

  40. Ryan Mettler on May 5, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Great video as usual! I actually called my ma after watching this to tell her I wanted to do something like this for her backyard in Colorado.

    Only thing I would comment is, for next time, instead of filling the bottom of the bed with gravel, you can use the Hüglekultur gardening method. Fill in the bottom of the bed with some wood scraps, old stumps and branches, or any other kind of general yard waste. That organic matter breaks down and creates a healthy ecosystem for worms and microbes (also saves on having to buy anything for filler). There’s a great video from another YouTube channel called "Self Sufficient Me" that explains it in better detail, but it’s just a thought. Keep up the good work, and stay safe!

  41. Tammy Venezia on May 5, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    We made this and LOVE it! We get a lot of attention from neighbors. We are going to remove one of the doors next year and put in an extra bed. Thank you for posting this and selling us your plan. We also used a heavy wire for the top instead of bird netting so I can train my squash and cukes to grow up and hang. Would post a picture but can’t do that here. Thanks again!

  42. Thomas Simons on May 5, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    I bought your plans, but I need to modify them since I also have a 12" difference in elevation. I need the doors installed on the high side however, so I will need to add boards to back. The plans are a bit confusing as to where boards are allocated, so I’m not quite sure what I need to purchase extra of. A cut list based on the lumber requirements would be fantastic

  43. Donna Tisch on May 5, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    LOL if you have a good screw you will be ok

  44. Thor Matt on May 5, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Great job. I would like to build this but now that lumber prices have tripled, I can’t afford it.

  45. Dash20 on May 5, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Question: when you set your posts, did you add all the bags you needed in dry concrete first and then add water? Or did you add dry, water, dry, water? Or something else?

    Thanks! Looks great!

  46. A Glimpse Inside on May 5, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    You sneaky little devil. Where was this massive project in your social media as of late? Such an undertaking and I know your mother-in-law will be giving you 30% of everything she grows
