First of all , Where are you located ? If you are in south florida you are OK , but if you are in any freeze area you might crack all your valves and pipes in winter . And have to replace the whole manifold .

Why not spend the money and get a durable plastic box. Eventually, the wood will rot, causing the hole to cave in, you may never be able to find your valves again. Secondly if they are anti-siphon valves that is ok to put them above the ground, inline valves are typically for an underground situation. Bury them and put them in a plastic box.

Valve Manifold Location

I am about to install my sprinkler system. I would like to place my valves in a homemade wooden box (6 valves) against the back of the garage, about 2 feet above ground level. I don't want to bury them or have to buy valve boxes. I see most people put them in the ground. Any reasons why I should not do this?? Appreciate your help.
