We built this raised bed garden in the spring of 2008 around our flagstone patio using used retaining wall blocks purchased from a friend. We back filled it with “Garden Soil” from Pioneer Sand. The soil quality doesn’t seem that great. It’s pretty sandy but can become real hard when it dries out as if it were clay. It probably just needs a couple years of adding compost.
