River Rocks For Garden Beds - When vegetables that are growing in raised garden beds using the Square Foot Gardening approach, your beds should be sectioned off into one-foot segments called putting squares. Each putting square comes with an address used to recognize the square.
One of the simplest would be to use letters for numbers and columns for rows while for addressing the methods vary, and the square is identified by the mix of the two. Numbering beginnings in the upper left corner and proceeds left to right, top to bottom. For instance, putting square A1 is the upper left-hand square (1st column, 1st row), while putting square C4 is the square in the 3rd column as well as the 4th row. I've yet to find a commercially accessible garden bed with an included feature for marking off putting squares.
I wish somebody would build a Square Foot Gardening grid that you can add into a garden bed that is raised to mark off squares, but until this really is accessible, in case you want to utilize the Square Foot Gardening process, for marking squares off, you'll need to devise your own procedure. The initial step would be to figure out the dimensions on the interior of the garden bed, which is width and the length which is in fact usable for planting.
But when you connect the planks in the corners, you lose several inches, therefore the interior dimensions of the garden bed are really a few inches short of the advertised size. In my instance, my beds have an interior dimension of 46.25 inches x 94 inches. I refer to these dimensions as Usable Span for the balance of the post.
