    DIY Raised Bed Planter

    Hi,Greatinstructions, am just getting into home veg and herb growing, so this is quitenice. One question: do you have a version of this which uses wood from shippingpallets? got a few of them lying around, so would prefer to recycle theminstead of going for new wood. My main doubt is making the legs using thepallet wood. I live in the tropics so a raised platform is a must, as at groundlevel you simply cannot avoid leaf-cutter ants and other assorted pests withoutresorting to pesticides, which I don’t want to use. I have lost entire crops ofginger, spring onions and other assorted edibles to those pesky ants, so I planon putting barriers on the legs to keep them from climbing. I also have a badback, so a good height will certainly help!
