This will be our new kitchen garden. Currently it is an old and rather overgrown ornamental garden bed with severe drainage issues. So the first step is to get rid of the weeds. As there are a lot of stones and a cement pond-ish thing in there we decided to kill off the growth so we can see what we are dealing with first before digging it out. To do this I like to use black builders plastic to cover the area. This will prevent rain getting in and raises the temperature underneath to cook out the weeds. The plan is to raise the edges to about knee height and use it as a kitchen garden to grow herbs mostly. There are another two beds in the area that will also be used for this.
