Do we need terram under my new veggie patch?
East Sussex, United Kingdom
We have concreted a base ready for a shed etc, and created 3 x raised beds with scaffold boards. There was a large but neglected raised allotment that we have dug/weeded and moved the soil temporarily to make way for beds with space around them.
We are now ready to place the 3 x beds in position and fill with soil, the question is do we lay some membrane like terram over the plot first? or will this inhibit the drainage?
We will lay something around the beds and then place some decorative stones to stop any weeds and make the whole plot a little more attractive!
We would really appreciate any advice and will post photos of our progress very soon.
