The 2 vegetable raised beds are now ready for planting. My wife and I spent the better part of Sunday finishing them up and unloading the rich soil from the local landscape supply business down the road. It took 2 heaping scoops of soil to fill the beds even though one of the beds already had some of the dirt from a previous bed that was in this location. We used some of the soil that was left to fill in some tire tracks in the front yard so it should be a little less bumpy when I cut the grass.
The photos are below of the before and after for the beds. Basically, if anyone wants to know, a 4x8x6" raised bed like the ones I built will need about .59 cubic YARDS of soil to fill them up. I picked up a little more than that because of the second bed that needed about half that amount to finish filling it up.
