You say the wood chips break down and need to be topped off each year or so. What keeps those decomposed wood chips from sifting through the mesh sides, either when dry or in a heavy rain? I don't think I would prefer to be fertilizing the grass around the bed with the composted wood chips. Wouldn't that encourage grass to grow into the mesh and be hard to remove?

Can I use hay, instead of wood chips

Joshua Ervin says:

That would end up being nothing but a total mess after a few months.

You are so creative! Enjoyed your video.

Allison Dunn says:

Will this raised bed dry out easy? In other words will it retain the moisture ?

The Kaveman says:

You want to build 2 skins one inner skin between compost and soil and one inside the main structure . That will hold the chips in place and still provide a barrier which doesn't break down .

Do you get lot of roaches in the wood chips? I did when I mulched with them. Wood roaches in Central Kansas

munchkin5674 says:

Are you adding additional nitrogen to the soil to replace any pulled out by the wood chips decomposing?

Thinking more on your set-up, this could possibly be an interesting way to set up a composting keyhole garden so that decomposition could be observed below the growing area.

Mention: dont ever use fur tree scrap

Resting Bitchface says:

When you say "mesh" are you talking about chicken wire?

Castle of Costa Mesa says:

How exciting! Thank you for your video!

Norman Hooper says:

Thinking outside the square…a great idea.
I think this would be reasonably not to expensive.
I like the idea also that you can adapt this to different sizes, depending on the layout/size best suited.

It's also moveable after a couple of seasons.

I like it…great idea.

Have a great day good people.

Jane Denholm says:

In England wood chip mulch is expensive, any chance of substituting sawdust instead as I can get that free?

Ray Bankes says:

Hay Mark, can u give us an update on these raised beds and how they are producing with two summers behind them as evidence?

Arlyne Lauro says:

Nice job. It would be nice to see the actual work keeping the wood chips only on the sides.

Jude Irwin says:

Narrator man. Learn the difference between “premise” and “premises”.
