Re: Concrete Raised Garden Beds (Easy to build, and fairly cheap)

I just found this site and was very pleased with the concrete beds. I've did a raised concrete herb garden several years ago. I thought it would be the easiest way to build a raised garden. I planted herbs in the block holds instead of putting a cap in it. Works great.
This year I'm doing three beds for vegetables. I'm only making it two blocks high. Instead of removing the grass/weeds I am laying landscaping netting down then blocks the soil.
As I am a widow once this gets done planting and caring for garden won't be too much for just one person to maintain.
I'm new at growing veggies so any input would be appreciated.
