    Started to install 4 garden beds about 3 weeks ago , they are corrugated iron and are 2300mm long by 600mm wide and 400mm high.

    Originally they were 800mm high , but the angle grinder sorted that.
    They are to be used for growing Black berries , Blue berries , Logan berries , Boysen berries. gb1.jpg gb2.jpg gb3.jpg gb4.jpg gb5.jpg gb6.jpg
    the last pic shows how well its breaking down after 3 weeks.
    one down three more to go. unfortunately I need more green waste. so only got one of the four completed.
    good news is one of my neighbours has just finished pruning so in the next few days the garden beds should be
    completed.:thumbsup:

    regards john

    Good looking beds there John. Long and narrow so you can reach the centre, awesome. Looking forward to seeing the end results and the crops flourishing.

    I love these types of raised beds (as most people here know by now) they look good and are also very versatile! On my mobile atm will have a good look at this when I get home - very interested in the fill you used.
