You can buy stickers for wheelie bins with pretty flowers on maybe you can cut one to size. That way it will loom could all year around.

Raised Bed Advice Please

I will be making some raised beds up soon. Could I use turf on the bottom or should I let it rot down first.

grass cutting

the odd winter cut on a dry day to 'tidy up' it fine on a high setting. Otherwise wait until grass starts growing in late march/April.

too early, lawn will be bare for a long time and weeds will get in.

Thanks for the advice.

I was thinking of bidding on this:

Although to be honest its getting a bit high on price now and i'm not sure I can get it taken down without breaking it to pieces!!

Remove box hedging?

Too far from me. I suggest you stick them on eBay if you don't want them. Probably worth a ??5 a plant minimum.

Cheaper alternative to raised bed

Posted: 10/02/2015 at 20:48
Raised beds mean that you can future proof you gardening for when you are getting on and can't bend down so much!

I like the idea of doing one a year. My beds have too much soil now and slope up perhaps 8 inches at the sides. I could reduce this to make one nice raised bed and then do another next year.

I'm tempted to make some with breeze blocks. It's cheaper than timber and was looking at this.

I indulged myself...

Very nice. Well done for putting it up at this time of year as well! Brrrrrr
