Reading the posts here I hope I did it right ! I installed stacking beds (each 8" tall) - and filled them to about the 14" mark. I am planting tomatoes so thought it needed to be deeper. I used Miracle Grow Organic "soil" for raised beds. (that was a project -- our bed is about 12' long by 42" wide (with dividers) -- so we are exhausted from hauling the bags in. I as figuring I would water the entire area (not just the plants themselves) and it would stay moist longer -- but reading above sounds like that is an incorrect approach. Gets really hot here in Texas.
