The Drain Game

After looking at the pictures of the wood box with the mini-pallet lining in place, it occurred to us that any water that did manage to get into the box would likely pool in the bottom, which is not good. So this afternoon Lisa decided to do something about that.

Drain Holes

Lisa drilled two holes in the back rear of the box to allow any water to drain out the back (and thus off the side of the porch onto bare ground).

Drain Holes

She drilled the holes diagonally to make it easier for water to drain.

After drilling the holes, Lisa applied sanding sealer to them so that the bare wood is less likely to rot.
