Making Angled And Tiered Planters

I landscape on an angle from the house. I will make a three level planter; the first level is 8 feet wide and long, the sides are white rock or, preferably, pressure treated wood. In the center of the second level, make the planter 5 1/2 feet wide and long. The third level is 3 feet wide and long. If possible make a second planter on the opposite angle from the house. The angles makes the grounds look bigger.

On each level, plant shrubs and flowers. Keep the planters in clean shape and put a nice ground cover like bark mulch thinly to keep it fresh. Then in the back, add some rectangular beds to plant vegetables. Loosely behind them, plant corn and potatoes. For a delightful addition, add dry flower seeds and miniature gourds. Then add berry bushes.

Recycle broken concrete from sidewalks or a driveway. You can have this material delivered to your house for free. This does not have arsonic or other chemicals in it that can be absorbed into your plants. These levels will last forever without any additional effort. You can even grow moss on the concrete if you want without doing any harm to your landscaping mateial.

My city is telling residents NOT to use pressure treated lumber for any projects, because of carcinogens for children and harmful chemicals for the environment. They say that when geting rid of pressure treated lumber waste or old projects, it has to be handled as hazardous waste with permits.
