Adapting a Raised Garden Bed for SFG
I purchased a 14-in. deep raised garden bed last year before researching SFG. To save money and follow the SFG guidelines, I want to fill this bed with six inches of Mel's Mix. Would there be any harm or benefit to simply putting the mix at the bottom of the bed and having eight inches to the top of the frame? Would this setup help in making it easy to protect it from animals? Would it be better to try to create a new bottom for the box that's six inches below the top and have it be portable? I would really appreciate any suggestions or opinions.
