Before & After: Raised Vegetable Beds
Sally wanted to move from gardening in small containers to growing her vegetables into two 4'x8' raised beds. She saw this video from This Old House and wanted something exactly like it. Together we worked out a supply list and she got her lumber cut, ordered and delivered from Smith Ace Hardware. She got a load of 2 cubic yards of soils from Marshall's Farm Stand dumped in her driveway.
I built the beds and reinforced them with metal straps. I also loaded all the soil and mixed the peat moss into the boxes. Sally wanted them filled to the top and she ordered the perfect amount of soils.
