New from Daytona Beach, FL.- 2014 Organic sq.ft Garden (20x35) with

Post  Jahluka on 3/6/2014, 7:04 am

Hello Gardeners. I started my garden from supplies I have collected on job site dumpsters from my jobs. I am a professional painter and have read a lot about Square Feet Gardening. I came up with a plan to start collecting lumber, concrete blocks and ground flooring.

The only thing I bought was all the soil I needed (Mell's Mix) and need many more soil. So far I only have some boxes filled and planning to cover all of my garden with shade cloth (40%)

I will post more info and pictures on my Organic Garden Project.

Jahluka,  Welcome to the Forum!   glad you\'re here   Very nice looking layout and free at that.   okay   Yes, please post updates and photos, we love photos of others' gardens.  May I ask what the black ground material is?  Is it impervious or pervious?.

Black Gound Cover

Post  Jahluka on 3/6/2014, 6:18 pm

The black ground material is a combination.

The first layer I put down over the grass is Silt fence, commonly used fabric for erosion control in residential and commercial construction. They have wooden stakes attached to them and are 3'-4' feet in with and the fabric works great  to control weeds. This material is made from woven polypropylene yarns and water can slowly flow through the fabric.

I them cover them with Weed Cloth for a better look since I'm not planning to add stone around the boxes...I use pins to hold them down.



The pictures only shows the Silt fence fabric.

Good.   okay   I was afraid it might be impervious interior flooring that is laid over cement foundation.  I couldn't tell by the photo.
