      I used 2×12 inch wood from Home Depot. I had both of them cut in half giving me 4 4ft long boards. I drilled them together at
      home.

      I live in the Phoenix area so sun is always a concern. My house is has a east/west exposure so I put the frame in an area of my backyard that gets lots of sun in the morning and is alittle shady in the late afternoon. I laid down lots of newspaper and poured in 3 bags of Miracle grow.

      I then divided it into 16 zones and planted different stuff in each zone. Since I love swiss chard I used 2 zones for that. The great part of this type of gardening is that when a tiny weed grows you just pull it and you can reach all areas easily.

      I used seeds because I wanted to go as thrifty as possible. Good luck! It really is a great way to stretch your grocery dollars!

      What did you use to build the square foot gardens?
