Woo hoo! Each one of our beds is only about 3ft x 2ft! The 8ft x 2ft beds were already wicking beds and we 'just' had to put them together and fill them with mix.

We just finished converting one our garden beds into a wicking bed big effort don't know how you did yours in 3 hours it took Glen and son 5 hours with me watching. I admire you more now. Show pics tomorrow. Did it largely on your example. We are pleased with the result.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
