hey all, first post, so hello. I've had a couple of planters built for my new smallish front garden by a joiner friend. They are two intersecting boxes, one approx 1 metre square, the other approx 2.5 metres by 2 metres, from 5x8inch pressure treated something or other. For a quick scribble of what I trying to explain, see http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/vie ... id=9245956 Neither have bottoms as I want then to sit directly on the ground, be filled with soil and the plants take their nutrients from the soil/ground. I'm then having the rest of the garden around the planters block paved with small sets (not by me, by a pro). My problem is what order do I do things in? Do I need the put the planters in then pack the hardcore around? Should I ask the pavers to put the hardcore in first then dig out what I don't need? How do I fix the planters in... simply hammer some long stakes into the earth and screw the planters to them. Should I concrete the stakes in? As you can tell, all help really appreciated. True North.
