Woooooooohooooooooo! The garden is almost complete!
The top rails are all attached and ready for the screens.Screens are up. The gates are yet to be put on, the automatic irrigation system assembled, and the hose bracket for the sprayer needs to be attached. The garden requires 40-41 cubic feet of soil which hubby is picking up from Geo Growers tomorrow. Before the dirt is in, though, I'll put down a sheet of weed protection plastic in the walk around center then top with brick or concrete squares.
All in all, the garden has come together well. I've had to put in a few extra screws to tighten up a spot here and there. My only real complaint is that the directions should indicate the distance from the edge of the wood boxes to the top of the braces. If one is assembling on concrete, the directions are perfect, but when it is assembled on the ground which is not totally level, it would be better to know the exact distance to measure from the top of the wood boxes to the top of the braces. I had to rework the braces several times before I got it right so the plastic tubs would be level and not higher than the edge of the boxes for the top rail finishes off the wood boxes. It doesn't do for the plastic tubs to be too low or too high.
So far, I definitely recommend this product, and we are less than "moderately" skilled -- the directions indicated assembly would take 6-8 hours for two of the "moderately" skilled.
Until next time, God bless.
