Tell us about yourself!
I've seen this is a neighbor's back yard, a great solution for poor topsoil!
I'd love to re-build this project out of a rot-resistant wood like poplar or redwood, unfortunately, it was out of my price range at the time of the build.
It took a lot of soil to fill it, you could do half logs/half soil like I did or half straw/half soil. Or the design could easily be 3'x8'.
I use straw in the garden as a mulch around all my plants, it helps the soil retain moisture and breaks down quickly into humus. It would probably work great to fill the bottom half with straw and the top half with soil.

I haven't tried measuring the temperature/humidity relative to outside yet. I have a hygrometer in the soil and I've been watering every four to five days. It seems to retain water better than the rest of the garden. This would look great with actual glass, but you would probably need to double up on the wood to hold the extra weight, and the doors would probably have to be 4' instead of 8'.

You're welcome! Let me know if you run into trouble trying to make it, it does take a bit of finesse, and might need to be scaled up for someone with larger hands.
Thank you! It is the first. I tried sculpting a second heart based off the first, but I thought the shape got too refined, so I went back to the first.
