First raised beds

Hi everyone,

I've been working hard the past few days to get the foundations for my beds finished. I've still got to add another layer of blocks, and to get the soil mix. But I'm getting close. Now if Mother Nature will just remember it's almost Spring....

Lee, They look great so far, and I imagine it has been quite a bit of work. You're going to have so much fun growing plants in your new raised beds.

I sent Mother Nature a memo to remind her it is spring. I doubt she will read it and even if she does, she won't care. Apparently she thinks she is the boss.

Those are some nice looking raised beds!

RE: First raised beds

Lee, those are very nice beds. I have never used concrete blocks for a border but they should be great. I have use landscape timbers, native stone and mortar and even organic mulch, all worked fine.
