3 Long Wicking Beds

Long

Wide

High

UrbanVeggieCrew was commissioned to build 8 wicking beds in Uralla to be placed adjacenetly to form 4 extra long beds, NSW.
After some discussion following some initial renderings, it turned out that 6 wider beds placed to form 3 long ones provided the same growing area in a more cost effective way, allowing us to build higher for less bending.

The longer bed acts as part of the fence line and will eventually have a trellis on the back - it is in a great spot for catching the sun without shading the other beds.

The wider beds have a massive amount of growing area, and will be great vegetables requieing more space such as corn, zuchinni, squash as well as accomodating many rows of smaller vegetables.

Each bed contains a subfloor, and is fully lined with an inlet and overflow outlet. Wicking cells are filled with volcanic rock to provide a non-organic wicking base layer. More about this method here: https://www.urbanveggiecrew.com.au/post/best-mix-to-fill-wicking-beds

We can't wait to see photos of the first few crops!
