|I just finished building raised beds for flowers and veggies. What type of soil mix should I use to fill them?

|A mix of about half topsoil and half compost will be good. Another option is to mix compost and sand with your existing soil in a 50% compost, 25% sand and 25% soil mix. Whatever mix you use, blend it in with your existing soil in the bottom of the beds before adding more mix to prevent a sudden interface or different soil types.
