On this week’s Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast, we talk shop with Catherine McLaughlin, the Design Studio Principal from Farmscape about the rookie mistakes even professional landscape designers make when it comes to raised bed vegetable garden design.
Rookie mistakes like bad locations, the wrong materials, designs that aren’t functional—we’ve seen it all! Catherine and Christy vent about it, and you’ll learn as you listen.
