- More room
- More time
- My own space, with no one (such as an HOA) telling me how it should look
Look at all these construction materials the former owners left in here! What can we use to make a raised bed? There are unused fence posts, drywall, untreated 2-by-4s, bricks, cement, tiles, paint buckets, a mirror ...
I think I know what we'll use.
A nice sunny spot near the house. Sounds great! Only problem is that I have to dig up about 4 inches of pebbly cover material before reaching the soil.
I am not handy. This drilling takes a long time. And it probably is not done "correctly."
Good thing my main man is working on the sprinklers out front and we have a bunch of extra soil. I need that soil for the garden!
Total cost: about $25 for the box of nails and the soil amendments. The rest of the materials were on site.
Let's see if we can get anything to grow in here!
