Soil tilling

Posted by mtgs 6 (My Page) on

I started a new garden bed and it seems after I till the area, the place I marked where I want the bed is all covered with soil making it hard to see the line. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to avoid this. Thanks

RE: Soil tilling

You could mark outside of the garden area. If visual cues weren't enough, marks would allow you to install stake & strings after tilling and re-establish exact edge.

If curved, mark a duplicate edge outside of the garden with a uniform offset--like 2'--so that original edge can be re-established.
