Last year I decided to put a Raised Bed Garden in my back yard, and got most of it built, but was snuck up on by a chronic illness which basically has sapped me of my stamina and endurance, but not my determination. I wanted to find a non-strenuous, less demanding method of finishing my garden beds which also wouldn't put the squeeze on my wallet. I started to do a search on the internet, and I found what i was looking for  in an online article by Lucas Crouch at "Backwoods Home Magazine".  Hope what I found and put together will be helpful to some at least....

Step 1: Supplies & Tools needed...

1 roll of 3' x 50" Construction/Erosion grade Propylene Silt Fencing (about $20 a roll at your local Big Box Hardware Store)
1 Twenty-Five pack of 24" long Wooden Landscaping Stakes (About $8 per pack at the same store)
Your choice of Soil and Soil Amendments from your supplier (Topsoil,Humus, Compost, Sand, Sawdust, etc etc...)
Old cardboard or Newspaper
a plot of land to build your bed(s) on and to grow from.


1 heavy hammer or mallet
1 regular hammer
staples and staple gun
razor knife or sharp kitchen knife
Tined Fork Rake, Pitch fork, or Garden Hoe
<p>I would be a little worried about how flimsy the netting is over the fencing you've put up, but as long as the posts are driven into the ground deep enough they should hold. You've also got to test tension between posts as well to make sure that they are able to resist a bit of bumping around in case there are things that happen to knock into them!</p>
wish you all the health dear!!!
<p>Thank you! No Photo's, sorry...</p>
any photos for the flourishing garden?

<p>The 1t year everything did very well...after the 1st year though, I haven't done a garden due to chronic health issues and working at getting back my health...</p>
<p>How did this hold up? I'm using it this year for potatoes.</p>
