Edible Garden - Curvy Beds
Over the last week I've started creating some growing areas as part of the design for our new Edible Garden . Using small and slow solutions, the first part of the implementation of the design is to create a series of small beds in one area of the garden which flows with some of the beautiful curved lines of the land and the existing paths already in place. This draws on the designing from patterns to details principle. Ive been using some roof tiles, left in a heap on the land when we bought the house, and stone, also already in the garden, to create the edges Once the beds are finished we'll be adding layers of horse manure/straw, growing green manures and adding some further top soil (taken from else where in the garden as part of plans to create new paths and capture water - the subject of a different post!). We hope to then start using the beds in the early spring
Love the curvy beds! Great idea on the slope.

Hi Flo- thanks for your comment - moved to Spain in April, and had observed the land for the year before that, but only just starting to settle down into things like garden design ...really like the curvy beds..enjoy your new garden too x
