The project

 

Finally got to put together this garden bed using Sienna H4 Micropro Pine sleepers and Merbau. Very happy with the end product.

I'm planning on planting some weather-friendly herbs. I used to use small pots so it'll be nice to have this for a change.

It cost about $200 for the following:

 

  • 4 x 3m sleepers (cut to 4 x 1800mm and four x 400mm)

 

  • 7 x 1800mm (70x19mm)

 

  • 5 x 1200mm (70x19mm)
