Garden Renovation: Day 25 – Building Raised Beds
We actually have raised beds! Well…some of them. No soil yet, but it feels like we’re making progress.
In the mean time, a small group worked on getting those square raised beds leveled. These raised beds were made out of a cheaper recycle plastic lumber that is only 15/16″ thick. Because of that, they had to have more support beams inside, and even then some of the boards are already bowing slightly. We’ll probably put a little more support on the inside to make them sturdier.
Woohoo! That’s one of the big raised beds finished and the three small ones finished and in place. Only 6 more to go! We’re planning to get 2 more smaller beds and a large bed installed on Friday. Also, the Compost committee is planning to start building their compost bins on Friday. That would just leave 2 more large beds and a small triangular bed to complete next week.
Now about that soil…
