New wicking beds

Wicking beds from plastic drums
Two new wicking beds from recycled materials

The last couple of weeks have seen big changes in the front garden.

After the mulching and new paths, I was looking at what scrap material we had and found two half pickle barrels.

So… I reused some of the gravel, some plastic that I was gifted, old PVC pipe, polypipe and shade cloth to make two lovely new wicking beds. The only thing we had to buy was the potting mix.

I photographed the whole build and promise to do a ‘how to’ on how to make them, as well as a little wicking bed theory.
