This once high-maintenance lawn now hosts three raised-beds made from re-purposed logs. The flat tops make a great place to sit and relax or tend the garden. This is a great option if you area on a budget.
These beds are built from rot-resistant redwood lumber. They take up less space than the log beds, and offer a little more formality.
The deeper the bed, the deeper the roots, the bigger the veggies and sweeter the fruits!
Rain gutters lift strawberries out of the domain of slugs, snails, and most insects. Birds are also less comfortable landing on them. The ripe berries will dangle over the side for easy picking.
