Building a border around my yard
I'm using timbers which are 3"x4"x8' around my entire yard which is about 250 feet. I do not want to use rebar, and I only want to use one timber high. I will lay them on soft dirt. Should I put down sand or do I need to pack the dirt? Do I need to put them together with a hinge screwed on the backside because I donÃ¯Â¿Â½t want it on the topside? They are heavy so they should sink into the dirt up to a half an inch to be solid. Any advice on how I need to do this because I really donÃ¯Â¿Â½t want to screw this up because IÃ¯Â¿Â½m putting in a lot of time and money.
