Project Raised Bed Garden

We located a reputable nursery that would deliver untreated soil from a forest being demolished for a new development (as close to “certified organic” we could afford).
And so the project began.

Soil delivery

We assembled the first enclosure and began filling it. We mixed compost, perlite, peat moss and the forest soil. In the process, the sides shifted and we realized we hadn’t selected the best location for the raised bed and it ended up crooked. More thought had to be given to the next four.

We lined up and marked the remaining locations, then came the tedious labor of lugging the soil the nursery delivered from the front yard and filling in the raised beds.secretgarden756
