  1. I am just wondering don’t we need holes in the hose for the water to
    distribute evenly within the soil?

  2. Over the holiday week we took on this project. We built 4 rolling
    planters. They turned out great! Multiple people asked about building
    additional ones.

    Total construction time was 54.5 hours for the 4 rolling plants. This
    video is only 10 min long. I think it probably took closer to 13 people
    hours.

    Lessons Learned:
    1. You don’t need the finishing washers. The key is to drill pilot holes
    for all screws.
    2. Recommend Pressure treated wood for everything.
    3. Missing from the shopping list are screws. We recommended #6 1-1/4 inch
    screws for the lattice work. #6 2-1/2 inch screws at least for the frame.
    4. To save some money we did 2 casters fixed direction and 2 swivel casters
    to allow easier movement.
    5. We used chicken wire for the “hardware net”.
    6. For the top we went with plywood without any holes. To affix the top to
    the living garden we used a bolt and wing nut.

  3. That’s one amazing moveable garden wall! Got a question, though. Wouldn’t
    some of the soil fall off when you water them?
