Decide on the size of your triangular planter and write down the measurements.
Cut three pieces of 4x4 pressure-treated lumber the same length. Using a miter saw, cut each end at a 60-degree angle. The angles should face each other and fit together to make a triangle.
When the planter is secure, line the sides with landscaping fabric and staple the fabric into place. This protects the lumber from weeds and moisture.
Fill the planter with soil.
Add greenery of your choice using normal planting methods.
