If you don't know about Ana White yet, Where have you been? She is so cool! She posts the most amazing and practical plans on her site, check it out.
So here is how ours turned out. I love them. I love the way they look, I am still trying to figure out some sort of ground cover to go around them, let me know if you have a good idea.
So the plans for these raised beds are right here. They were really easy to build.
We had some dirt from another project we've been working on. so we put that in the bottom of each of them and then we put a layer of straw. Then we bought a mixture for raised beds at our local yard and garden store. It was a little more money than we wanted to spend but I already think it was worth it. It was so easy to plant everything.
Then I used this site to plan where everything was going in the garden. It was so helpful.
Let me know what you think. This is our first year with raised beds and I'm hoping we get lots of veggies and don't have to pull any weeds.
