You really have no idea how sore you can be from shoveling. Our last remaining room on the lawn is almost filled with raised beds. We removed the grass, leveled the area and added two more to the mix in the span of a couple of hours. The mister is on a mission to use only Redwood from now on because it “looks” nicer and is supposed to hold up well to the elements. But I say, that stuff is 20 times heavier than the recycled wood we used before and makes for some interesting moments due to the fact we have to carry those boards up our nice stairs into the yard.
We think we have room for one more but that may need to wait until next year.
