Phase I - Raised Garden Bed

The weather was decent over the weekend, so on Saturday we built the frame for our raised garden bed.  Phase I of Farber Backyard Update is almost complete! It's a 4x8 foot rectangle made of cedar wood, which is naturally resistant to rot. The sides are 12 inches tall. We cut two sheets of metal mesh for the bottom {to keep digging critters out} and the 6 support stakes extend past the frame and into the ground for stability. I also planted a 4 foot arbor vitae & 5 day lilies near the garden bed on Sunday. We still have some more minor landscaping to do around it, but for now we're just glad to have the frame in place, ready to hold some dirt. We look forward to planting our garden sometime after Memorial Day weekend. Here are some pictures of our process:
