Ml50 Raised Bed Garden Drip Irrigation Kit - When vegetables that are growing in raised garden beds utilizing the Square Foot Gardening method, your beds will need to be sectioned off into one-foot segments called planting squares. A 4x8 foot garden bed will have 32 planting squares. Each planting square has an address used to identify the square.
While for addressing the methods change, among the simplest is to use letters for numbers and columns for rows, as well as the combination of the two identifies the square. Numbering starts in the upper left corner and goes left to right, top to bottom. For instance, planting square A1 is the upper left-hand square (1st column, 1st row), while planting square C4 is the square in the 3rd column as well as the 4th row. I've yet to locate a commercially accessible garden bed for marking off planting squares with an included attribute.
I wish somebody would create a Square Foot Gardening grid that you can insert into a garden bed that is raised to mark off squares, but until that is accessible, if you prefer to make use of the Square Foot Gardening method, for marking off squares, you'll need to devise your own personal strategy. Step one will be to figure out the dimensions on the interior of the garden bed, which will be the length and width that is in fact useable for planting.
However , when you connect the boards at the corners, you lose several inches, hence the interior dimensions of the garden bed are actually a few inches short of the advertised size. Inside my case, my beds have an interior dimension of 46.25 inches x 94 inches. I refer to these dimensions as Useable Length for the remainder of the post.
