When my husband was finished building our compost barrel, he assembled our raised garden beds. When I shared about planning our garden, there was only one raised bed in our garden spot, now there are four!
Once we placed the beds, we laid down a thick layer of newspaper, creating a barrier to prevent weeds. We wet the newspaper to keep it weighted down.
Once the newspaper was all down, we put a layer of garden soil over it.
Now there’s just a thin layer of soil, we need to purchase a load of soil to fill our beds up.
This year we have a little garden helper, he helped packed down the soil.
Next on our ‘gardening to do list’ is filling these with soil and soon we’ll be planting!
