Why he doesn't put the plants in the soil directly? How tall/height and long should be the beds? Depends the plant?

Hi Curtis, Craig aka Hawkeye here from Adelaide South Australia here. A live Q&A would be great. I have so much to pick your brain about. I would dearly love to turn my Urban garden into an urban farm, but am physically restricted because I live with stroke-related disabilities however with small steps I work on.p anyway I thank you for all your help via your youtube channel and sincerely look forward to your live q&a chats even though it might mean that I'll have to be up at 4 am because of the time difference between British Columbia and South Australia. ALL GOOD WISHES my FRIEND. Craig,

i did mine very similar except I used mulch instead of gravel and instead of paver I used some broken concrete slabs that were irregular shaped and I thought added interest. happy gardening..

I'm going to ask the most obvious question, I don't see any weeds how do you stop them?

It's so great that your town/county allows food gardens in the front yard. So many towns don't.

Did you put the fabric under the raised beds too? or only under the gravel around the beds?
Sparky Mahoney (3 месяца назад)
Pro-tip: If you want to keep the wood from rotting that are non-toxic there are two things you can do. 1) Use a mix of pine tar and raw linseed oil. A 50/50 blend works like a charm. It's how the Vikings used to waterproof their boats. 2) Line the beds with subfloor underlay - the stuff that looks like big bubble wrap. You put the bubble side facing out so the moisture in the soil doesn't eat away at the wood and any water that gets into the space between simply falls to the bottom. Just drill 1/2 drainage holes every 2 feet and Bob's yer uncle.

Ouch... Really expensive... I mean, I love the way you organise your farm, that's a no brainier there. Thank you for all your insights and greetings from Portugal.
Stephan Quintavalli (3 месяца назад)
What about your trellis, how did you make them? Also, live streams are neat too! I know another guy who does them for small livestock.
Stephan Quintavalli (3 месяца назад)
I like that logic....it looks nice too and should be easier to keep cleaner. I live in Miami with massive amounts of humidity and will do this too.

You mentioned not putting Linseed oil in your raised beds, what is that used for?

How are you going to change the soil, or just adding new compost will be enough?

Another fan of Jordan perterson! Nice work on the beds. We decided to do this too. Much easier. Less weeds.
Annie Gaddis (5 месяцев назад)
LOVE those, nice and neat for a front yard in case of a HOA, and you can still hook up a low tunnel on them in winter. Will have less weed pressure, so a good place for carrots, beets, etc that don't grow well around weeds. Suggest putting screws (instead of nails) on one end of each bed so you can put a large tarp down, take the end off, and run your tiller up the end instead of having to lift it in (in case you ever do want to till it). You may also want to make some wooden templates that will poke holes for putting in small seeds (see Hollis and Nancy's Garden Tip Number # 6), but you may want to make the holes closer together. Love the plastic and pea rock in between too, keeping weeds out, and a tidy look. Great job!

Those look great, like the all thread idea on keeping them from bowing in the middle.
Oysterman (5 месяцев назад)
Looks great and you're absolutely right having the wood resting on gravel. Cheers
Nadeem Shah (5 месяцев назад)

Matías Gallinger (5 месяцев назад)
Hi Curtis! Beautifull work!!! but I need to ask... why did you built raised expensive beds in oposition to the fundamental recomendation of the tradicional grounded and non expensive (profitable) beds?
Urban Farmer Curtis Stone (5 месяцев назад)
Because these aren't for the farm. That was made pretty clear.
Darryl Hoover (5 месяцев назад)
When you say "Fir", I'm assuming it's "Douglas Fir"?

Definitely interested in the live Q&A
Keith McNeal (5 месяцев назад)
Curtis, Looks great. We're thinking of installing raised beds just like this for our entire farm roughly an acre of production. Do you think there would be any upside to doing so from what you've seen so far? I think ultimately its just a more finished look for a market garden but there could be some benefits in the long term as well. Cheers!

It looks beautiful. I am so glad you explained your reasons for doing raised beds...I'd watched you with Mr. and Mrs. Wranglerstar and I was sure I remembered the discussion re: the raised beds. I think I'm going to tackle something like this (smaller scale) and I'm so grateful to have the excellent instruction and example here on your channel. You are a gifted teacher. Thanks.

Now that is an awesome looking garden. It should keep the neighbors happy and the govt out of you hair the better it looks. Especially since it is in the front yard. I did the same thing with my little experimental/fun aquaponics system I built last year since I was in an HOA at the time. I just called it a "Goldfish Garden" if the nosy neighbors asked and they loved it since it looks so nice. Just moved though. So now I can build a real garden.

If I got a notification that you were going live I would tap in. Garunteed. Thank you for all of your great advice!
Pinkenstein (5 месяцев назад)
What a beautiful garden. I love how tidy everything looks, and your idea of not setting them in decomposing wood chips seems very smart. I'll be interested to see how it goes with time. I would love to look out over a kitchen garden that looks like that. So dreamy. We can keep the wild permaculture in back of the house, but this is definitely a showpiece I'd be proud to have on display.

Im working on a few raised beds for Artichokes and Asparagus. We have a terrible problem with bind weed. How do you deal with weeds in your raised beds and your flat beds? My weeding tools are pretty much as good as plucking by hand. Bind Weed totally bites and it just won't go away. Been dealing with it for 18 years.

I live in a dry high altitude climate (Colorado 6800ft) and every person I know uses cedar. Every fence here is made from cedar. They side the houses with cedar. Never heard of anyone using fir for these tasks. Good luck.
john johnson (5 месяцев назад)
Thx for the video. What did you fill your beds with? Thx.
Dobie G (5 месяцев назад)
look into graphene cement/concrete it's supposed to be super strong. new technology that might be perfect building perimeters. if it can be made somewhat hollow inside, like a skeletal interior frame, you could probably get it to cost even less.

Love your raised beds. That is our goal one day when we have our own place again. Right now we are growing in containers. Our veggies are growing like crazy.
MrBrianDuga (5 месяцев назад)
the pea gravel is a really great idea. just built a bed with PT. i know, GASP! PT is made with Copper now and I lined the inner wall with aquaponics plastic to minimize leaching. A bit overkill but i was thinking about something like pea gravel as well.

Great stuff. I'm doing something similar in U.K, did you apply any timber treatment at all to retard rot? Is the soil straight against the timber? Many thanks!

I am just getting into this business and I am wondering at farmers markets or if you have extra lettuce or any other greens what do you do with the leftovers?
Tomahawk Permaculture (5 месяцев назад)
Curtis, Live video YES!
Dan Gorec (5 месяцев назад)
Intriguing idea using the threaded cross bar supports. I normally staple damp-proof lining around the insides of the beds to keep the soil from drying too quickly.

u built them like 80% other, replacement needed in 5-20 years depending on conditions, u could have built the eternal with concrete blocks for less money

Ryan Gott (5 месяцев назад)
Great looking raised beds! Q&A's monthly would be cool. I like watching your channel you have helped me out alot. I'm starting my own business here in southern NM. Growing tomatoes corn watermelon microgreens summer vegs in general. I saw your video at steadfast farm in Phoenix AZ and how he grows lettuce with the shade cloth great idea. I'm giving it a try this year. Trying to hit the farmers market with some summer lettuce. Thanks for all the great tips and advice!

why the concern about linseed oil in soil ?
Urban Farmer Curtis Stone (5 месяцев назад)
No concern, I should of used another example.

A live show would be cool but the ones I've seen are too "folksy" for lack of a better term. Discussing a topic and then fielding questions on "that" subject would be good. Be careful not to wander on other subjects. Another problem for me is remembering when they're happening.

I am currently growing hops and a few other vine plants in a raised bed. I am very new at gardening. So far I have been kind of winging it. Do you have any advice on growing hops or other viney plants and what kind of climbing system that I should use?
Mr.Clean (5 месяцев назад)
"Weed suppression" and "insect and pathogen prevention" with the rocks. Plus using wood mulch may create homes for insects,disease, pathogens, and fungi spores to "Overwintering" and Give your crops Powdery Mildew later on.
