Good Morning!Thank you for adding the pictures of these raised bed's. I could really do with the exact same. What did you line the bottom with?
We have red clay for 'soil' here, and it was used to fill the railroad ties level. On top of that, in the beds, is a 12" layer of gravel, then some 'top soil' (by loose definition) and then mushroom compost, my own compost, and manure mixed in.
The layer of gravel helps with drainage, keeps critters from burrowing in, or things like Bermuda grass from creeping in from the bottom.
