Clever Gardening Technique

Garden Hose Bed Design
For a fast and easy way to layout a garden bed, take a garden hose and lay it on the ground to outline the perimeter. Then step back and look the area over, adjusting the hose layout to get the bed "just right". When you are happy with the design, use spray paint or a dusting of lime to mark the bed line, then get to work removing grass, adding organic matter, and constructing the bed.
