    Well that's not going anyplace soon…lol. nice. but someone below said concrete is toxic. the link won't work for me and we'll before I commit to concrete garden fortress I was wondering if you read it.

    So then a big rain storm comes and fills the garden with water. What do you do then?

    You're absolutely right Mark.  That's why I lined the walls only with plastic.  The bottom is soil.  I thought I'd made that clear but can see now that I should have been explict.  Thanks for pointing that out.
    Most of us would agree that only water lilies and algae would grow in a pond.

    What an audacious suggestion audas. But I wish I’d thought of it. Next time I certainly shall act on your tip to tip. Cheers.

    Next time – like me – just tip the dirt straight into the bed from the barrow – they have a convenient lever on the front for this very purpose, just put a brick on the edge of the bed and they will lift right over the wall. Then rake the dirt even.

    Thanks, Ping Pong …..Your serve..

    No, Lyn. You certainly don't HAVE to use black plastic. It just sometimes helps to keeo the soil moist where regular watering may not be possible or may be spasmodic.

    Do you have to have black plastic liner

    Crusher dust is the fine material from a quarry after crushing blue stone. It has almost the consistentcy of sand. In fact, sand would do the trick, too. If you are from the US I think it might be called stone dust there.

    There is no glue/mortar holding the second/third rows. The weight of the crusher dust does the job.. Make sure that you lay the second level of blocks across the gaps of the first row so that it presents a jighsaw-like effect

    I want to build some beds like yours. I have some questions.What is Crusher dust, and did you not use some kind of glue/morter to hold the top blocks in place?

    Gotta love a foreman who somersaults on the work site.
