 The shell made with pine. The ground is lined with hessian bags to prevent perforation of the plastic lining.  

Lined with builder plastic, ag pipe, the overflow and 1.5 ton of gravel between the 2 beds. I wish I'd known or thought or coarse coir peat back then! 

A layer of geotextile to filter any water from top to tank. and no I am not trying to fertilise it. Naughty bed?

2 beautiful wicking beds with flowers and veggies!
