For a slightly elevated SFG box (maybe 2-4" off the ground), and using a plywood bottom, what is the best way to ensure good drainage in the box?  I read this post where she recommends the following:
Your 4 outside corner drainage holes are correct as you described. In addition, you should have a drainage hole in the center of each of the squares...

Is this still the best recommendation?
