Q.Placing A Raised Garden Bed On Aggregate Concrete

Zone V4T3A5 | Anonymous added on May 21, 2024 | Answered

I live in the Okanogan where it gets very hot and dry in the summer. I want to put a raised garden bed on my aggregate patio. I was told to put old plastic pop bottles as a base and then cover it with fabric before placing the soil in the box. Is this a good idea?
