I've mentioned them in earlier posts. You can see those posts at (http://winjama.blogspot.com/search/label/Planter%20Tables). I called them 'planter tables' then.
So, here they are pretty much done. All that remains is to finish filling them with a nice mix of red or black dirt - always depending on what's available. Right now, it's red dirt. We mix that, more or less 2:1, two buckets dirt to one bucket wood chips.

I had part of a gallon of latex Drylok, so used that as far as it went. Then, went to Villa's and got a gallon of Oil-based Drylok. The application was about the same for both products.
You'll notice the little grey squares inside the box. That's nylon screen fabric that I've put over the drain holes in each box. To help (I hope) keep the dirt from escaping from the boxes.

And finally, here's Dianna, looking pretty proud of her new garden area. She's taking a break working with Cody to fill the boxes and making sure the mix of dirt and wood chips is right.
I know what she's thinking too. It's time for a shower, some lunch, and then it's... Pool Time!
