The New Garden Box

We had our garden box put together by our lawn guy, who did a great job.  Because the wood is pressure treated, it has chemicals in it, so we used the garden soil bags as a liner for the box.  These photos show the various stages of the soil being put inside, noting the 3 types of soil that we used.

Right now I also have a weed controlling fabric laid on it, after I watered the new soil down.  I will probably add the rest of the bags (3) on Monday, water it down again, then begin planting the first week in April, if not sooner.

Still having limited luck keeping the cat out.  Such is life, I guess.  I'm trying vinegar next.
