I am making a ProjectTile widget that has a shadow, but when I display the widget using a ListView.builder, then the container that holds the boxshadow expands beyond the width of the ProjectTile, so a blackbox appears as seen in the image below.

Container

A container first surrounds the child with padding (inflated by any borders present in the decoration) and then applies additional constraints to the padded extent (incorporating the width and height as constraints, if either is non-null). The container is then surrounded by additional empty space described from the margin.

A container takes all the available space .You might want to give it a width if you dont want it to take all the available space.

so a blackbox appears as seen

Given that the container takes all available space, and you have color:Colors.black as your container color property , then its working as instructed.

If you dont want to give it a width but take maximum space , you can try expanded

Row-|
    - Expanded (child, image, flex1
    - Expanded (child, your tile data, flex 3,
