It took me some time to make these two garden beds, interruptions and delays included, but now they’re done and ready to grow some greens.

The measurements are 200 x 100 cm, with 30 cm in height. They’re made from simple hardware store wood, painted with two coats of wood preservative and lined with a waterproof dimpled sheeting for added moisture protection.

Below the ground I added some weed control fabric, covered with sand. The bottoms of the beds are each lined with chicken wire in order to hopefully give the voles and moles that roam the garden at least some trouble. Finally, they’re filled with a layer of tree bark followed by ordinary garden soil. And that’s about it.

Plans for the future are adding copper tape around the sides for snail protection and a fixture to be able to install a removeable arch-and-tarp greenhouse construction in spring.
