We recommend you use a complete organic soil or the no-dig method, which involves layering hays/straws with manures and composts. In our 740mm high beds we recommend the bottom 400mm is filled with clean sand, general garden wastes or hay bales, we have even placed them on tree stumps. For the 600mm the bottom 200mm needs to be filled with sand or general garden waste. Our 400mm beds are a perfect depth for veggies so fill the entire space up.
