How To Build A Planting
Great beds are all about cleaning your environment where you can improve your soil, so that you can curl things like in your flowers and even vegetables. This worth of project is kind about to mess up once you know the beds.
What I want to first do I want to build my frame. I’d like to use composite decking material it looks like wood but won’t rot. Now when you are working with composite material it’s a little different in wood. The stuff we will not really screw into itself like an old wood, so instead what I want to do is I am going to first attach this front board to this block, and then I can attach my sideboard to the block as well. So my fork is going to go here right under the top there. I want to attach this, and I have to go from the front and when you are going to composite material it always help to keep it drilling.
With free drilling mashed this wood shrink of your bit to the unthreaded shaft of your screw. Free drill the composite plank through the core supports this then connects them with screws, and just see cut right in there. Now I want to connect my sideboard. The reason I am setting this sideboard back here is in the front of my bed on this side. I don’t have to look up this cut piece of wood. Sticking out if I were to overlap it, right behind it
I will show you what I did here. This one is about a half inch down this just a little bit on other side. This screw is about an inch and a half down. I’m going to pin this in the middle from the bottom as well, so none of these hardware is actually connecting with each other.
So, I have one corner done. Let me just do the other three I'm digging myself with all the way in and I turned middle put chop of soil. Once we get this part of the job done then we can start adding these nice soil. First thing, I added here is compost, the other thing it’s alright to add in is planting mix. The only material you don’t want to add in to your native earth is potting mix. Potting mix is for pots, planting mix is for mixing for the ground.
Next, all the bad soil and let’s keep blended in the native soil when layering is done. So I build in my two layers of my improved soil. Now, I am ready to drive in some stick just to keep hold my bed in place. I have to free drill the sticks over here. Put this one in do the same thing on the side, and there you have it. Your new raised beds.
