Yard Conversions

The grunt work that is converting a yard to raised beds is coming to an end for us.

Our MO is as follows:
1. Remove sod or weed area
2. Add soil amendment
3. Roto-till (only once, we are mindful of soil structure and tilth)
4. Dig beds
5. Let sit for a week or two before planting

Here are a few process pics.

Weeded, amended, tilled.
Hot stuff!
