...and here they are in situ in the sandpit bed at the end of the newly-cleared tomato patch (and a right messy job that was!) Posted by Picasa

Man, I love your raised beds! They look great. I need to make some myself over the winter and am taking inspiration from yours. Were they straightforward or are there any top tips you can pass on to a novice keenie like me?

Great photos. Great site. You have something special here. Keep up the great work. :)

Many thanks for your comments!

About the raised beds, I did put quite a lot of information on the posts I did last year when I was building them so you might like to have a look. I would strongly advise using groundcover on the paths and stapling it up inside the beds to stop the weeds along the edges of the beds - the hardest place to get them out of! If the wood is thin then it is well worth putting extra posts at intervals to hold the weight of the soil etc. Hope this helps!

Will - I was fascinated by your site when I had a quick look and will be back to see how you are getting on soon.

All the best, Mike
