If I lived in a drought area, I would definitely do this. And even though I'm not, I might do it anyway.

Thanks for posting that! That would even work on a deck or patio for those that are short on gardening space.

Now I have proof that I'm old: it looks like way too much work for me.

I couldn't possibly do it with my own hands either!
But I could draw it and direct some teenager.....

Probably too heavy for a deck.

It would depend on the deck support and the size of the box. DD made a huge box for her rental deck and they did calculate the weight of the full box after checking the deck support system. She grew awesome tomatoes, etc.

You do have a point about the gravel.
