Corrugated plastic roofing idea for a container
IÃ¢ÂÂve offered to help a friend start wintersowing this weekend and am looking for a quick alternative to collecting and using recycled bottles/containers. I personally use 2L pop bottles and underbed storage bins, however, I find that the underbed storage bins become brittle and break easily after a year or two in a Canadian winter.
I was thinking of using corrugated plastic roofing material screwed onto an 8" tall wooden box that you just put over 4" plastic pots? I could just buy some 1" x 8" x 10' pieces of lumber and build a wooden box without a bottom, drill drainage holes into the roofing material and then attach to the top of the box. Then I could put the whole thing over the wintersown pots out on the patio deck.
Do you think this would work and be worth it? Does anyone have any better ideas?
Attached is a link to what I was thinking of building.
