Q:The All New SFG book describes Ten Major New Improvements to the Original Square Foot Garden method. In your own words, describe those ten items here and tell why each is important
F. New Boxes – Above the ground You assemble easy to build bottomless boxes out of common lumber that most big box stores will cut to length into 4 foot lengths. Don’t care for the wood look? Use brick, blocks, or stone. There is one garden I know of that is a series of dinner plates standing on edge overlapping each other. Very colorful and recycling grins all in one. The boxes define the garden space. You will fill with the perfect soil, plant and enjoy. No back-breaking shovel, no bone rattling rototiller, no weeds. It is easy to tend the garden because it is contained and you can reach each square. Beverly Servadio of CA
