New Raised Beds - Planting Medium
I am planning a brand new vegetable garden for the spring. The area is currently in lawn and I plan to cover the area with cardboard to kill the grass over the winter. While some of my beds will be at ground level edged with 2x4's for neatness, I will have mostly 1 foot high raised beds. As I'm somewhat physically disabled, I think it would be too difficult for me to fill the beds with layered (or mixed) materials (peat, manure, topsoil, etc.) and I'm wondering if it would be OK just to fill the beds with compost from our county recycling facility. The compost is affordable and labor costs to deliver the compost and fill the beds would probably be alot less expensive that doing the same with a variety of ingredients. I figure that I can selectively amend various beds to suit the particular vegetables I'll be growing.
Thanks for any comments or advice!
