Looks good just be careful of the sun reflecting in the glass behind it on to the plants. May burn them.

Thank you guys.
WilySpike, herbs do good in this spot. Thanks for thinking of that but sun doesn't hit that window until late evening.
We had a plastic tub here last year. She sat potted Herbs on top of tub, they did great all season long (at this spot).
Each time we cut Parley or Thyme or Basil we had to stoop over. Which gave me the idea of an elevated garden and no pots to deal with.

Yes they do. I would have like them to be a little higher up then they are will find photos later today.
First thing I did...ask wife to stand and extend her arms/hand above her waist. Her hands touched the back of a kitchen chair. That was the height I went with and drew up plans from the height. No bending...lol

*Bottom/floor of box I put 3, half inch pipes for cross supports. Then laid quarter inch, galvanized hardware cloth, screwed with stainless screws & washers. Finished inside bottom with landscape fabric. Hardware cloth & fabric with assure good drainage.

Nice job, pretty impressive. Would have not thought about using pipe supports and screening, that's a great idea.

Don't think I'll show this to the wife!
