"yes..., I agree. I am of the same mindset. no tilling, no hoeing.., no plowing. spend your time considering different ideas or crops. I'm guessing the pvc needs to be replaced every so often, so beyond that, very sustanable."
"Kimberly, the ID (inside dimension) of the planters is 3' X 6', and the height is 12". There are 23 planters in this particular garden. The nice thing about raised-beds is, even if you have a small plot, you can maximize space, effort…"
