RE: bed size


If it seems too good to be true, it probably is....

Having worked on enough environmental cases during my previous life as an
environmental and  litigation paralegal, I'm a little leery about recycling
tires for gardening use.  Tires as swings, doormats, soles for recreational
shoes - by all means.

However, that being said, I like the bed designs - inappropriate for a small
NYC garden like the Clinton Community Garden but undoubtedly useful
elsewhere. Now pre-made plastic board is inert and lives forever ( I
personally use in my own raised bed,  untreated wooden boards - which will
eventually have to be replaced. The plastic boards  are an option I will
consider next time, for sure.)
