    You’ve put so much thought into your gardening apparatus. I love how passionate about all the growing things in our home!

    I build my own beds very simular to your raised bed. One problem I have (which seeme missing in your photos is the floor. How do you attach the floor to a raised bed in a way that the weight of the soil (and water) don’t break the bed?

    Glenn: I built my raised beds some years ago, but if I remember correctly the plywood base is 4×4′ and the raised bed has an outer dimension of 4×4′ also/ As such, I could simply flip the bed over, and use wood screws to attach the plywood base to the wooden frame.

    In other words, you can see the plywood base from the sides if you look for it. I thought they might rot-out too quickly, but they are about 5 years old at this point (I built my raised beds the year before I wrote up this post.)
