|This is the 'Right Stuff''|
Priced out wood for raised beds. I found spruce that would make it $24.00 for each bed at 4'x 8' and two boards stacked to a depth of one foot. They recommended a product called Lifetime that you paint on as a benign preservative. I will have to look into that to see if it is indeed safe.
I have decided to dig up the raspberry before it gets too established and put it back in the same spot but in a raised bed so the runners will be contained. It is honestly the most delicious raspberry I've ever tasted, so I want a nice big full bed of them. It is a Meeker.
You are totally inspiring me, Erin. <3
I have used thick layers of newspaper, burlap, and some kind of biodegradable cloth to kill grass for new flower beds. Sometimes if I have a tough spot, I use the permanent weed cloth. Don't you hate when you have to go back and get something else? Good luck, and welcome to Blotanical!
Yes, use old cardboard boxes, cover them with trimmings from your yard and compost in the fall and by spring you have a great place to plant!
