    Default Raised bed photos

    After 4 years of vegetable growing and 6 months off the forum I have finally got round to building a website to put my photos on.
    please click the link and have a look.

    they look very good - well done!
    If you can't get a mower between them and if becomes a bit boggy or overgrown Homebase do these natural looking textured mats on a roll. I also noticed that Elliots did a green plastic roll thingy. I am finding that Mr Mole likes the sections between mine

    I built them just over a mowers width apart and so far it has worked ok. I live in a very urban area so have never suffered with moles but the matting idea sounds good to put around the pond because that gets very boggy in winter.
    Hopefully changing it all round between now and christmas so I promise to add more pictures as I go.
    Thanks for the feedback

    It looks great Jay Jay. Well done.
    Very similar to what we have done. I would suggest getting rid of the grass - very easy to run up and down there and cut it - but all those edges. Ugh ! Time wasting exercise.
    If you go for getting rid of the grass slice it off in turfs, stack it green side down, leave it for a year and you will have fabulous compost to add to / raise your deep beds.
    Every best wish for your growings.

    From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

    Ab fab, love your girls too
    When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown

    Thanks Alice. I am having a move around between now and christmas( unless I can find another job ) I think you are right, the grass should go. I am going to join a couple of the long raised beds up and then maybe lay a gravel path on the bit that is left.
    I have got loads of ideas but not much money to carry them out at the moment.
    Thanks for the advice
