My wife has been bugging me for over a year about planting a guarden. My complaint was weeding & mowing around a guarden. So, this weekend while she was @ work on saturday, I decided to move the blocks into position and see what she thought about my idea for the planters. the bed is roughly 4'x4'x1'. 16 cubic feet. first after laying the blocks, I removed the sod with a heavy duty floor scraper that I sharpened the blade on. and tilled/busted up the packed top soil down to around 8". then layed the weed controll fabric "made out of recycled soda bottles" I picked up @ the local home improvement center for around $9 for a 4'x50' roll. then I filled with 14 bags of topsoil @ $.98 ea, and a some organic fertalizer. the blocks on the corners are just to hold down the weed fabric till I get around to trimming the excess. I think this weekend I will be building another with about 3' of walking space between them.
