Stonewall raised growing beds

Ive taken on a project for the winter and that is replacing the 5 baths that ive been growing in since building my stone walled tunnelhouse,i'm doing so because 1,rats have dug there way under the foundations and live under the baths where our dog cant get at them and 2 ,baths are not an efficient use of space,as in there's a lot of room around outside of the base thats not used, so out they come one area at a time as the new stone raised are built.As you can see ive added layers of sheep netting where each wire is cut away in long lengths,then the connecting cross wires are bent around to aid to the reinforcement.

  • The far end is finished where ive added a plant pot area that was high enough that i didnt have to bend down to pick them up,pots that go here go from inside to outside in summer.

    Now working on the two beds on the other side2170547198?profile=RESIZE_1024x1024
