Elevated Box Garden

HVEngineerAugust 24, 2013

First off, please let me know the correct forum to post a question on this subject, as I am new to this site and am not sure where to go for the information.
I put in a ground level box garden in my back yard, but unfortunately, there are Melaleuca trees there. The roots from them overwhelmed the garden and stunted the growth of everything planted there. I believe that I need to construct an elevated box garden (approx 5' x 8') in order to keep the roots at bay. I would ask for the best practice in constructing one...maybe >3" off of my back yard surface. Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks!

If you Google there are probably literally hundreds of blog posts and articles about how to do this. Your county ag extension office probably has info they can give you as well.
