Best Materials for Your Square Foot Garden Grid

Here are some tips from Mel himself on what to use and what not to use when putting together a grid for your Square Foot Garden.

Visit a thrift store and look for venetian blinds that usually come in just the right 3 or 4' lengths. Wood lath is found at most hardware stores and very inexpensive. Some other creative recycling ideas are old ski poles and arrows. You will need six grid pieces for a 4x4 size box. Simply connect the strips at the intersections with small screws. It does not need to be secured to the box but can lay right on top of the soil.
