garden bed

My achievement this weekend was this fine looking garden bed! It consists of seven original river red gum railway sleepers, cut to size and propped up on bricks and pavers where necessary. I also had to move the rest of the dirt, probably about a ton in all. We had to get a trailer down the side path, the sleepers weighed over a ton in total so I didn’t want to carry them any further than necessary. Two tons in all, not a bad effort for a Sunday! Tomorrow I need to get some sand to lay under the pavers behind the bed, and some potting mix to combine with the organic mix. Yet more money sunk into the Bunnings empire, but it will be worth it when the first vegetables come out of the ground.
