For my parents joint Birthday presents this year my boyfriend and I decided to make a raised bed for their back yard. My mom was the first to approach us about the idea for surprising my Stepdad. We took the idea and decided to include her in the surprise (my mom is very busy and was so excited that it had been done for her).
Here is a picture of the bed that we did for My mom and Stepdad.
Here is the website that we used as our guide and then a step by step of what we did to accomplish the project. http://eartheasy.com/grow_raised_beds.htm
Simple Raised Garden Bed Tutorial with some handy tips!
Other ideas for a raised bed garden, if you do not have access to lumber or tools.
Plastic moving containers (thanks Meme for this idea), wine crates, and/or buy a pre-made one (We bought our first from a nice man at the Farmers' market).
Hope you enjoy and See you next week!
