Default Garden PLot Using 4x6 Timbers

Well today my son and I got busy getting set to dig out the garden so we can have a nice edge to help keep the dirt in and off the grass.

It was a full day and we managed to get it all done.

I will post more pictures and show you the irrigation system I designed by catching the water coming down the eave trough from the garage.

Looks good, Dan!!!! My little helper grew up and now lives in Portland Oregon. He has two little helpers of his own.

A person can never have too many tools!

The end result looks great Dan, a big improvement from what it previously was. I look forward to checking out the shots of the irrigation system.

I made this up and it works great mark. Have been using it now for the past three years. I iwll be cutting some sticks to mount the sprinkler heads tomorrow and get the pump hooked up and the lin run.

The nice thing about the setup is is is quick to setup and take down before the winter time comes not to mention the money it saves on water. Imagine if more people saved the rain water.

If I were to build my next house I would imcoporate "GRAY WATER". Colelct all rain water to use in the toileetes and try live off the grid per say. Anyway I better go have my granola bar!

Dan, you and the little fella have done a great job, and, I dont want to sound like the prophet of doom, but is that a good idea having the garden bed against the wall......salt damp?, termites?..I dunno, your conditions are entirely different to ours....love the look of the soil, I could just about eat it....Regards......AL

Wait a minute, and hold the horsies.
Bevel gauge? Miter saw?
When I lay border timbers, I whack em off with a chain saw and toss em in the rut I dug.
Lag bolts and sealer? Geesh. Makin me feel like a Michigander.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
