DIY Raised Container Garden Stand

 We decided we wanted to try growing a garden this year, We have a tiny yard so a container garden is how we decided to go. That's where this beauty comes in. Instead of just having buckets laying around we decided to make a stand to organizer the buckets. I watched this video, however it doesn't tell you how many of each sized of wood to use. So here is the simplified version of the video. 


This is what you will need


16 42"

6 16"

4 26"

2.5" exterior wood screws I used a whole box from Lowes

9 buckets drill holes in the bottom

Stain of choice 

 4 wheels if  you wanted to make it mobile. Long story short we couldn't agree on wheels so we aren't mobile.


We started with making a base of 4 42" 2X4's and made a square. 

In the 4 corners put 16" board

in the center of the square place a 42" board standing on its side.

Centered on top of that board place another 42" board laying flat. Place a 42" board centered between the edge and the center on either side of the center. 


 Next add a 42" board to the top of the vertical posts to make a square.

 Vertical on either side of the center board place a 26" board on each side of the stand. 


Add a 42" board on either side of the 26" vertical board and a 16" board on either end.


  Sophie was a big help as you can see. 

Now to stain it and make it pretty. Don't forget to add drain holes to your buckets. I added a handle just in case we ever agree on the wheels. It takes roughly one bag of potting mix to fill 2 buckets.

I made the little labels so we wouldn't forget what we planted.
