Quick Guide to install our Corrugated Garden Beds
If the bed is to be placed on a lawn or garden we recommend digging in the first couple of corrugations for added stability. Fill the first 2/3 of the bed with any material suitable for drainage, eg: gravel, bricks, sandstone, broken terracotta pipes or roof tiles. A good idea is to use upturned polystyrene boxes to fill to bottom of tall garden beds. Once the drainage has been added, lay down a bed of straw. To the top of the straw, add some topsoil and then just begin to add organic material to the pile; cow manure, horse manure, chicken droppings, raw fruits and vegetables, coffee grounds, raw eggs, newspaper, more straw, topsoil, and other organic material. It is advisable to keep this pile covered if you have outside pets, as this pile is an open source of bacteria until it is properly decomposed. Toss the material regularly with a pitchfork. Once all material has decomposed thoroughly your bed is ready for planting.
