Planter boxes done for the front yard! We have such a slope in our front yard we could not do just curbing or rocks because all the wood chips would just fly everywhere in the grass. As you can see in the Pictures of the before. We did Treated timbers again. (Notice a theme for our yard.. we like the treated timbers) So we got the 2×8 treated timbers for our planter boxes and we did each box 6 feet deep and about 5 feet long in each box. For all the wood we spent about $200. Then spent about $200 on top soil and new plants. So total our project cost us $400. It makes a huge difference in the front yard though.
