Yes, we constructed them Christa. When I say 'we', it was my husband who did the lion's share of the work. We suffered the tragic loss of a massive, decades of poinciana in the adjoining property just about a year ago, as part of it being redeveloped. It threw amazing shade onto our entertaining area.
It means the area is in full sun all year. So, we decided to keep the paved area and become food gardeners! The raised weds are wicking so it ensures a constant supply to the plants. We keep our water costs down by using grey water from our showers, when we can.
Did you construct them Fiona, they look great. This will give you some different options in gardening. They are nice and deep, which is good for deeper rooted plants.
That's a very fine looking bed!
Thanks Roger. For now, it will be more swiss chard, beetroot, lettuce etc. I've also got some patty pan squash seeds to give a go. The back bed has an eggplant and will have more added when the temperature increases. I've also added a climming frame to the back bed so tomatoes will go in there in future.
They look great Fiona. What are you going to plant as your initial crops for this bed?
