im thinking about building an outdoor planter for next to a vinyl fence. ~10' feet long but only about 2' front to back. im going to line the interior with fish pond fabric and perforated drain pipes to water them from below. do i need to use cedar for this application? can i just use regular pine 2x material and stain or seal it or will they not hold up? ive never made anything for outdoor use before. im trying to do this for little money so cedar and composite decking material is not really in my budget. also, for fasteners, just regular decking screws works? i have a TON of leftover wainscotting planks left over from some interior jobs that are sealed with multiple coats of zinsser 123, would they hold up in an exterior application?
