I recently built two flower beds beside our front porch. Because there was an electrical outlet in the center, I constructed a cover to go over it.
In the winter months, when it snows at a certain angle, I need to dig out the snow around the outlet. I’ve always thought I should cover it somehow to keep it dry. And now that my new flower beds were in place, this seemed like a good time to do it.
I found a pile of scrap wood under our back deck and used it to build the cover. I didn’t want it sitting directly on the ground, as it would rot much faster, so I used the sides of my new flower beds as a ledge for the cover to sit on.
I cut the bottom board so it would sit flush with the inside of the garden ties I used on the beds. Then I loosely set up the cover to resemble a bird house, to get an idea of how to build it.
