Raised bed base?
Hi, I want to start my own veg plot using raised beds. My garden currently consists of a border of small bushes / trees around the edge, a bit of lawn in the middle and concrete paving nearest to house. Ideally I will be clearing most of this but my question is do I have to put a surface/base between the soil/compost that will fill my raised bed and the existing ground (be it currently soil/lawn/concrete) Please can I also have some advice as to drainage and how watering raised beds work? Will the water drain through to existing ground or collect at bottom of a base? Basically how do raised beds work? I'm clueless!
