Terracotta tile raised garden bed

This was a fun, slightly strenuous, little project.

20180320_123937I found these old terracotta tiles in the woods behind my Mamaw’s house. My daddy said that they were old drainage tiles that had been dug up years ago.

 

I placed them where I wanted them, then I moved them, cleared away the grass, and dug a small trench for the tiles to sit in. I filled the inside with topsoil, then potting soil. I also filled each tile so I could plant in them, too. 😁 Then I packed some of the old dirt around the outside of the tiles to keep them secure. Now I just need to buy more plants! 🀩🌱

Update: Yukon is admiring how our plants have grown.
