As promised I am back with something a little different today and indeed a new addition to my garden! Due to me being in a rented house and not having a very large garden, I decided to improvise and build a raised bed so I can grow some veggies! Well when I say me I meant I got my father and Andy to build it ...
Due to the fact it had to go on the patio area instead of lawn we built it at a height of 60cm to improve drainage and also add a punctured liner and some crocks to help improve drainage even more.
In went the soil and a layer of manure which I worked in the best I could ...
Topped of with some Multi Purpose compost.
It would have been better with rotted garden compost but seeing the contents in my compost bin haven't rotted down yet I had to go for the multi purpose. Worked in as well as I could it should be okay. Also I didn't fill it all the way up as seeing my garden catches the wind quite a bit so that little bit of protection for the plants will be good!
Now all I need to do is get started, this should be interesting!
