Flower Ave Garden Project: The First Of Many

Today was a great day, we got the first bed built for the front garden! It will serve as the prototype for the rest of the beds going in. It’s constructed of redwood to prevent rotting.

We framed out the bottom of the bed first, and secured the sides with 4x4s.

We put one more level of 2x6s and were able to complete the first bed!! We’ve got about 5 more of various sizes to construct, but working all the kinks out on this first was was a big step in the right direction.
