Courtesy of the North Carolina Arboretum, here is a handsome, easily assembled container. This one is constructed of heavy duty treated pine, 2 x 10 inch lumber, cut to the desired length and screwed together. Planted without a bottom, and sunk in the earth several inches, this simple container will provide years of use. My raised beds for vegetables were built over 15 years ago out of treated pine, and are still serviceable. The Arboretum has chosen to stain these planters, but you might paint them or allow them to grey out naturally.
