Welcome to Workshop @robbo62. I'm sure our ever-helpful Workshop community members will have some suggestions for you to make the most out of your new raised garden bed. How high are the sides?
I have a raised garden bed on pavers.
I used (approx. 20mm size) quartz gravel in the bottom to get the soil off hot pavers but also to aid in drainage. I also rinsed the gravel free of dust.
then I used a layer of geofabric over the gravel and up the sides before filling it with soil..
Thanks Bliv that sounds very helpful, I will try your idea as it covers drainage and lining for the soil. Greatly appreciated
