Building Flowerboxes for Wheelchair-bound Seniors
I'm currently in the process of planning an eagle scout project in which a group of people and myself would create, decorate, and instruct residents in a senior center how to use raised flowerboxes. The project would hopefully create about 4 to 6 flowerboxes which would stay at the senior center.
Anywho, I have a bunch of questions as I am not an experienced gardener. Firstly, is it ok if the base of the planter is wood, or should it be lined with plastic of some kind as to prevent rotting/damage. Secondly, aside from putting soil and plants in the planters, should there be anything placed on the bottom (I remember from elementary school gardening projects that we would always put rocks under the soil)? Lastly, what do you think would be the best way to attach wheels to the legs, or if wheels should even be attached at all?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
