Square Foot Raised Bed Delineated

The square foot raised beds were completed, filled and covered with plastic mulch on April 15.  To prepare for planting, it was time to layout the squares of the square foot garden.

The inside of the beds measure 4' x 4' / 1.2m x 1.2m.

The beds will be divided into 16 equal size areas. Each 1'/ 30cm square.

Mark the frame every 1' / 30cm.

Do the same all around the frame.

Using a straightedge, draw lines on the plastic mulch from one side of the frame to the other. Once all the lines are drawn you will have a grid. Each square measuring one foot by one foot.  Thereby the name, square foot garden.
