Concrete Raised Garden Beds Plans - When vegetables that are growing in raised garden beds utilizing the Square Foot Gardening method, your beds should be sectioned off into one-foot sections called planting squares. Each planting square has an address used to spot the square.
While the methods for addressing change, among the simplest would be to utilize letters for columns and amounts for rows, and also the mixture of the two identifies the square. Numbering beginnings in the upper left corner and moves left to right, top to bottom. I've yet to locate a commercially accessible garden bed for marking off planting squares with an included feature.
I wish somebody would develop a Square Foot Gardening grid that you can insert into a raised garden bed to mark off squares, if you wish to make use of the Square Foot Gardening method, but until that is accessible, for marking squares off, you'll need to formulate your own personal procedure. Step one is to calculate the dimensions on the inside of the garden bed, which is width and the length which is actually usable for planting.
The 4x8 foot garden beds I bought, for example, are 4x8 feet from end to end. However , when you connect the planks at the corners, you lose a few inches, so the interior dimensions of the garden bed are really a couple of inches short of the advertised size. Within my case, my beds have an interior measurement of 46.25 inches x 94 inches. I refer to these dimensions as Usable Span for the balance of this post.
