What are you most proud of? That we didn't 'think' it to death. We got in there, got going, and had fun with this project. The end result exceeded our expectations.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's not for beginners, you do need basic carpentry skills.

Very nice! We just got rid of a huge above ground pool and was thinking of raised beds. Your gardens have given me inspiration. Thanks

Thank you for sharing this with us. I like the way you made the garden a showpiece by adding the arch and urns. We have a large blank backyard and this gives me ideas!

These are exactly what I need to make my raised veg beds, what a beautiful garden.

What size boards did you use for your raised beds - and what size are the corner stakes? Also- how much walk space is in between them? Thanks! Susie

Oops - I didn't see that you already said the size of the wood! in the corners did you use the whole 4 by 4 or cut it in half? like how much walk space you allowed - thanks! Susie
