Rasied bed construction
Railroad ties were chosen as a quick and econmical ($1/foot) edge for these raised beds in the backyard. 20 yards of ammended topsoil were used to fill the beds and a 3" layer of pine mulch laid on top.
This was Phase one of a two step process, the second step included two more raised beds and reseeding of the bare spots in the lawn around the beds and drainage runoff.

|This drain runoff had been poorly set by the builder some years ago so we reset it to hold the slope pressure while we were there :)|
