WHAT IS THE PLAN?
When planning where to put your raised bed, remember: location, location, location. Pick a site with at least 5 to 8 hours of sunlight, away from conifers, oaks, eucalyptus trees; easy access to irrigation. Plan your layout and quantity of plants based on what you will actually consume; spaced with room to grow; placed so taller plants don’t shade shorter plants. Take pen to paper to plan, get your supplies, and get to work prepping your space. Print the list below to help you prepare for what you need to get started. Clear grass, weeds and debris from your bed area. Lay down weed cloth and spread mulch in the area where your bed will live for extra protection.
