Decking Project Tullamore Part 1: The Problems

This Article will be slightly different from others as this time I was on site to gain experience and knowledge so I can pass on the right information to you so let’s begin.

The Problems?

Drainage

Upon visiting the site straight away you could see drainage was a problem as the garden was  not level, causing the water to sit at the front of the garden under the decking and at the side of the house. As you can imagine the stagnant water had caused the decking to be susceptible to rot by constantly being submerged in water the sub-structure had started to get weaker due to wet-rot which had started growing significantly on the struts.

Why did the raised beds need replacing?

Raised Beds – How Much Soil Do I Need?

Raised Beds – Soil Depth Requirementsraised bed 8

A frequent question we receive in our store is “How tall a raised bed do I need to grow vegetables?”

The ideal height for a raised bed is a matter of preference for gardeners. Considerations include the cost of raised beds, the condition of the soil beneath the bed, soil depth requirements for the intended crop, and especially important to mature gardeners, how much bending over you want to do.

Container gardening also requires gardeners to understand the rooting requirements of different crops. Since gardening containers and planters have bottoms, the soil depth is limited.

These considerations are discussed in the article below, with charts showing the rooting depths needed for different vegetables and the sizes of plants at maturity, which helps to determine the location and spacing of seeds and transplants.

Beginners guide to Gardening.

 How to start a Garden!

how to start a garden

 

Spring is a good time to begin growing and digging, although planning can take place before the snow melts. Gardeners spend most of the summer watering, weeding, and watching young plants grow. Fall is a good time to plant trees, shrubs, bulbs, and some perennials.

  1. Get an idea. Is this going to be a vegetable garden? An herb garden? A flower garden? If you choose to grow flowers, do you want annuals, which you must replant each year but which give colour most of the summer? Or do you prefer perennials, which have a shorter bloom time but come back year after year? You can mix any of the above — after all, it’s your garden. Just one bit of advice: Start small. It’s better to succeed just a little, than to fail grandly.
  2. Pick a place. Almost all vegetables and most flowers need about six hours of full sun each day. Spend a day in your chosen spot and watch how the sun moves across the space. It might receive more sun than you think. But don’t despair if your lot is largely sunless; many plants tolerate shade. Check plant tags or ask the staff at your local garden centre to find out how much sun a plant requires.

Our Raised Bed Project in Gael Scoil ui riordain Ballincolig, I Promise this rant won’t be long, Raised Beds are Perfect for teaching School Kids or anyone for that matter the value of planting and growing your own crops as well as responsibility for something other than yourself, As technology greatly enhances our knowledge and connectivity some things get lost along the way,

Even something as simple as growing your own food and becoming sustainable without the need of your local supermarket, Don’t get me wrong I am for lack of a better word a Geek when it comes to technology just can’t get enough but often thought if something was to go wrong and the internet no longer existed or a Solar Flare knocked out all infrastructure what knowledge would I have to survive or offer to someone,

The problem with my generation and I will be the first to admit this is we rely on the cloud for information a server somewhere with the information we need if disconnected we are on our own instead of reading a book we ask Google and so information has become less valuable as its always on demand,
