Raised Bed Liners

Posted: 02/07/2014 at 21:12

I used permeable membrane on the bottom of mine, to prevent soil being washed out as the lawn wasn't totally level.  I stapled it to the sides to fix it, and then stapled some thick polythene around the inside to help protect the wood from the wet soil and the roots of the plants from any preservatives in the wood.   Total cost about £3 each raised bed.

On the way there we came upon this just after it had happened

A member of the public had helped get the driver out and he didn't appear too badly hurt thank goodness; the police were just arriving on scene so we got out of the way and left them to it.  

Still one heck of a mess and the main road was closed northbound when we returned after our picnic - diesel and chicken manure - an unpleasant mixture

Hello folks - I'm back after a lovely but tiring day.  

We went out to the coast to Orford and walked along the riverbank towards Orford Ness.  It was a beautiful day and the sea lavender was out all along the saltmarsh along the riverside - DD braved the mud to pick me some samphire for supper tomorrow

 The sea lavender was gorgeous.  Afraid the pics are a bit fuzzy - the light was so bright it was hard to see to get the focus right
