Step 1: Research, Gather Materials and Build
First I researched how much space the plants I wanted to grow needed. Then, from that, I decided what size to make the garden and what type of wood to get. Then I went to the store and bought the wood. When I got home from the store I drilled guiding holes in the wood and then put screws in to hold the garden bed together. Before I reated the big garden I prototype with the extra wood I got at the store to make sure the screws were the right size and that the bed would be sturdy.
Step 2: Layer Bottom With Paper Bags
I put a layer of paper bags at the bottom of the garden bed so the dirt can begin to start the composting process.
Step 3: Fill With Dirt
I used five bags of organic composting mix and a two bags of organic top soil.
Step 4: Plant
Finally I dug small holes to put the young plants in and then covered the roots with dirt.
