***Official gardening, landscape and yardwork thread***

We had a 2014 gardening thread and another planting trees thread. Figured it would be better just to have a general thread to share knowledge about all things yards.

I've learned stuff about growing things here in the desert from people all around the country. Post pictures and share your knowledge!

Where did you get the corner blocks that are grooved to hold your boards? Can you get those at one of the big box stores?

So is it an always-on drip irrigation? Or a manual turn on/off? Wasn't sure if it is something where it drips slow enough to just remain on all the time.

So the rebar runs inbetween the 2 boards? Or vertically into the ground?

Yeah, that's pretty cool. With the length of the bed, I'd worry about the 2X6 Bowing out. FMB, you mind me asking what you have in that? doesn't look like a whole lot unless those posts are expensive.

Hummert's fertilizer from Ace Hardware if you're local. Only Ace Hardware sells it. Only thing left to do is fertilize. no way around less work with a healthy lawn.

Ace Hardware should have printouts of what to do with your lawn during what months. Ask them for one and tape it to your garage wall and your yard will look awesome if followed.

There are shutouts on each of the beds, plus at the source.

Per section, 4 2x6x16 @ $11.15, 8 stones at $2,56 apiece, and roughly 28 cu. ft. soil at about $1.60/bag.

Thanks man. That's a pretty sweet setup.

Did you use treated lumber? How deep did you drive the rebar in?

If you only cut about 1/2 inch off and get a mulching blade, you won't have to bag. The clippings are good for the lawn if they are not to long.

Kind of.

I bag mine every time. Over time if you mulch back it will build up the lawn and could affect drainage. Over time your yard could end up being higher than your house.

Granted that takes a long time but it can happen.

I am NOT ****ing with releveling a yard.

I got 2' rebar, so that's 12 inches into the ground.

And everything I've read is treated lumber is not good for gardens, so no. Framing lumber. I know I'll probably need to replace it every couple seasons.
