We have a cute little Japanese Maple tree on our front lawn. I love the tree – but do not love playing twister with it, while I’m mowing the grass around it. LOL
Note: In order to give the tree plenty of oxygen, I kept the soil level very low (3/4″) and didn’t pack it in around the trunk. If you want to try this idea, make sure to take these precautions to keep your tree healthy.
So I decided to make a shallow planter box around it. I picked up two 8-foot 3.5 x 3.5” pressure treated garden ties.
Then I cut them both in half, to make a 4 x 4’ box.
I laid the four pieces of wood around the tree and measured from the tree trunk to the box on all four sides to make sure the box was centered. Then I dug up all the weeds and trimmed the grass as short as possible inside the box.
