Great Mother's Day present for a gardener.  Did you do on ground beds or extra high/tabletops for Mom?

On the ground but wanted to make it above the ground. I was trying to figure out what to make the bottom out of that would last a long time. I wasn't so sure plywood would last very long.

I used 1/2 in hardware cloth (wire mesh) stapled to the bottom and supported by three 2x4's evenly spaced across the bed . Lined them with weedblock.  Do a search on tabletops and you will see other ways to build  and support.  There is s thread using cement mixing tubs in a wooden frame.  I raise my tubs onto stacked cinder blocks.

Welcome neighbor. I used pallets to make a table, then laid some steel shelving on top of the pallets to protect the pallet wood, and give me a smooth surface. You'd be amazed all the things you can get for a song, or even free, when a store closes. I got about 200 feet of shelving, ranging from 1-2 feet wide and six feet long, for free from one store. Most has been put to use, either as shelving in my workshop, or for tabletop gardens.
