I've been asked by a friend to build a planter box made with Northern
White Cedar. I was given dimensions of the box as 61" x 18" x 26.5".
There were no indications of length height and width, but obviously
the box will be 61" long. Without benefit of W and H indicators, what
would be the protocol for reading 61" x 18" x 26.5"? Should the height
be 26.5 or is that the width? My friend is unavailable for
consultation on this. The planter will hold LLEX Crenata (a species of
Japanese Holly, to 4 feet high.
Only my opinion:
A planter would be 61" long (left to right), 18" deep (front to back) and
26.5" high to hold a hedge-type group of plants, otherwise it's rather
shallow and more square which makes less sense to me.
Unfortunately your friend might accidently get what he specified -- it's
good of you to question it.
