At 71 nature is beginning to take its tole 😥so I’m thinking of changing my veg plot to raised beds. The plot is roughly 18 ft long (N to S) and 15 ft wide (E to W) in a pretty sheltered area.
Width wise I’m thinking 2x4.5 ft with a 2ft walkway between each bed with the final one taking up whatever is left but with a full 18 ft run.
My thinking is that 18 ft is probably a little bit long of a run; it may encourage people to step over the bed rather than use a walkway between them so I’m thinking of 2x8.5 ft beds with a space of 2 ft as a way through. Height 18 or 24 inches? Would that appear sensible ?
Another possibility could be a number of smaller beds nearest my house, pallet size with an 18 inch break between each. I have a number of pallets and have excess to more if needed
As far as the longer beds are concerned I’ve been reading about plastic wood. Anyone ever used the product and what would your thoughts on it be.
As always thanks for any help you can offer and please feel free to make other suggestions.
