    Very helpful, and comical. I was actually laughing audibly during parts of this, odd considering it was a gardening video. Also, I thought the camerawoman’s questions answered some questions that others would have been too embarrassed to ask.

    Your video was one of the first I saw when I was looking for tips on how to build a raised bed. Thanks!
    I had to sink mine a little bit in the ground because I have that evil Bermuda grass!
    Plus my property slopes a little.

    Best of luck with this year’s garden!! 🙂 I love my raised beds!

    does the raised bed have to be in the dirt or can i place it on concreat?

  13. NavyBlueSTL says:

    DON’T use drywall screws. They are not rated for weather and will rust, break and your bed will fall apart. Use DECKING screws. They are rated for outdoor use.

    @erochow Thanks for the tip!

  15. erochow says:

    @switch55 you water mature tomato plants when the top inch of soil is dry. over-watering is one of the biggest problems in the garden.

  16. switch55 says:

    @erochow Thanks for replying eric. Being I’m still a rookie at this, how often do you water your tomatoes?

  17. erochow says:

    @switch55 i used 2×12 boards and the tomatoes are just fine, eric.

  18. erochow says:

    @ainemacdermot excellent suggestions. thanks for that. eric.

  19. ainemacdermot says:

    Hardware cloth is a good idea. Weed barrier cloth will prevent the grass from growing up through the bottom; if you don’t have that, then line the bottom of the boxes with cardboard before you add planting mix… the cardboard will eventually gracefully degrade, but by then the grass underneath should be completely dead.
