Instructions
 
STEP ONE
Prepare.

Gather, measure, and cut your PVC trimboards with a circular table saw.

STEP TWO
Assemble the pieces.

Assemble the sides to the base, starting with the short sides. Lay the base on a flat surface and use four 2" screws to connect short sides A (8x7 1/4") to the shorter sides of the base. Then use five 2" screws to join long sides B (8x24") to the long sides of the base (one per corner and in the middle).

STEP THREE
Create flower box borders.

Use three to four 2" screws to connect the long tops to the long sides and two 2" screws to join the short tops to the short sides. Place the screws .5 - 1" in from the ends and in the center of the top pieces.

STEP FOUR
Finishing touches.

Cover holes with PVC plugs, and drill three holes into base to allow for soil drainage and air circulation around roots.

STEP FIVE
Add flowers and enjoy!

Add planting soil and flowers. Fill with perennials and flowering foliage. Yellow, purple, red and white make for a great color combination!
