vegetable planting in swale
Hello. I have a home built in 2016 that included a roughly 10 x 10 ft "planter" for run off water control from the roof, which is finished with a low profile composite material. The planter came with (and still has) a watering system (was in ground sprinklers which I converted to drip system) to assure the grasses that were planted in the planter at house purchase would grow nicely when there was not likely going to be much run off (such as now). It seems to me at least some of the planter could be used to plant edible vegetables. Is that legal, not advisable, and/ or reasonable with certain precautions or caveat, or ??? Thankk you in advance for your knowledgeable response. Lawrence

I appreciate your help.
Would it be a problem at all if I put a wood deck ( with space between each board) over parttpart or all of the planter to make it an outdoor lounging space ?
