Hope not OT or please direct me to a suitable 'gardening' group.
Oak barrel intact but lost its top and bottom.
Going to put circles of waterproof plywood in top and bottom
BEFORE I cut it into two 'tubs' for planters. The idea being the
circles will also provide rigidity and keep staves in place. Will
also put some SS screws through the metal bands into some of the
Question: Should I put drainage holes in the plywood 'bottoms'.
Any advice appreciated.
Also: We also have two existing 'tub' planters now which need
repair; mainly what has happened is that after some 20 years,
outside, some of the metal bands around the tubs have rusted
through and must be repaired. Also these two tubs were standing
on a concrete slab which contributed to moisture staying around
especially the bottom metal band/s. Idea now is to raise them
slightly on, say bricks or blocks of treated wood.
Again any advice/comments appreciated.
