A vertical garden is a great way to bring some greenery into a small area like a patio or a balcony, without taking up too much ground space.

Done in a Day
You'll need to set aside a day to comfortably complete this project
First, measure out the dimensions of your raised bed, then use a spade to remove the top layer of grass where it is going to sit. Rake and level the ground to make sure it's flat.
Position corner stakes at the inside join of each of the 4 corners of the bed. Hammer them into the ground, leaving enough timber exposed to drill your rails into. Use a spirit level to check that they're straight in the ground and that the tops are level with each other.
Attach the boards to the stakes using galvanised screws. Use a try square to check that the corners are 90°.
Fill with compost to suit your chosen plant types. Then you can finally move on to planting fruits, vegetables or flowers in your new raised bed.
