Our deck has been transformed by the addition of 4 large planter boxes, made at wheelchair height! We're both looking forward to creating a raised garden of flowers, herbs and hopefully a few veggies.
This is our deck before the new planters arrived.
The first one gets put in place.
And here they are; there's a 4th out of sight to the left.
These planters were all made for us at a Mennonite nursery, the Maxwell Nursery, over the winter. They were made to our specifications so I could access them in my wheelchair, all built of cedar and pine. All but one are 8 feet long and about 16" deep and wide. The fourth is shorter, allowing room on that side of the deck for my ramp.
And these are the raised beds at Parkwood Institute, the rehab hospital I spent two months in. That's where we got the idea. I'll be posting updates so you can see how these develop. Today is a bright sunny day, if still cool, so Mrs. F.G. is out there working on them, She's the horticulturalist in the family, so she's in charge. I will just be documenting her work!
