      I used 2 x 12 in wide wood from Home Depot and I got it cut for free. It was 8 ft long and I just had it cut in half! super easy.

      I used seeds because they were so cheap. I live in the Phoenix area so I started them outside. It is already in 80s so its perfect for gardening.

      The only other thing is I used miracle grow since it was on sale and I think it probably helped them grow so well! Good luck and let me know how it goes!

      hi lynne!

      i just discovered square-foot gardening and am really anxious to try it. glad to hear it’s as easy as it looks cause i’m a newbie to gardening. what did you use to make the box?

      wood or something else? if wood, what size…2×6?

      next question…did you get plants and start them inside, or seeds, and how early in the season did you start them?

      sorry, have lotsa questions. any help would really be appreciated!

      I started square-foot gardening last year and have been amazed at how
      easy and fun it has been. I grew different types of lettuce and would
      clip leaves each day for a mixed green salad, added cherry tomatoes
      also from the 4×4 area and had tons of other vegies like carrots,
      chard, beets, big tomatoes and other stuff. Plus I grew cilantro(love
      it!!), parsley and basil(for pesto.

      I have never gardened before and
      was surprised at how much fun it is!plus i did not even dig up the
      grass first. i just laid down newspaper and it works as a natural
      blocker! this year i plan to build a second frame for flowers! frugal
      and fun!

      plus its great for my diet!
