Q.First Step When Planting A Raised Bed Garden

Zone Bethalto, Il | Anonymous added on September 21, 2021 | Answered

I’m thinking of starting a raised bed garden. I’m wondering what I need to do about the grass and weeds on the ground where I will put it. Do I need to dig them up or will the three inches of new soil put on top kill them?
