Low maintenance into a lawn

You need to see what sort of soil you are working with first. The ground will very likely be compacted so will need turning over. When you know what your dealing with,  top soil /compost can be added or it may not be need.

I am making a raised bed box out of some pallets, do you think 14inch / 36cm is deep enough for second early potatoes?

Lovely pond Saliva 

Mark56 - I've been using slug gone wool pellets, they do work for a while but break down in 10 weeks or so , It is expensive and the bag doesn't go very far either. I do try the organic slug pellets but I am not overly sure they work. The slugs dont attack my aster monch frikartii.
