Back gardening after three years absence! Woohoo. I am up in the wilds of Warner Springs CA and I am using the fenced paddock to put my table tops. I have a piece of 8'X32" marine plywood that I am using for a base and building the sides with 8"X1" planks. I will be putting holes in the plywood. That is all on top of two saw horses.

Question - I was going to line with weed cloth to keep excess dirt from being lost but wondering if I need to do anything about the place where the planks meet the plywood (the perimeter)? Will I lose too much water there? Should I line with thick garbage bags there or caulk? Amazing what you don't know you don't know until you do it.

Chopper,  what\'s up, dude

It's nice to see that you're putting down roots  Rolling Eyes  long enough to have a garden!

I wouldn't worry about the joints.  Anything smaller than ¼ will soon get plugged.

Welcome back Chopper!

I used duct tape to fasten sections of weed cloth up the sides of my vinyl fence post garden once upon a time. I just needed the duct tape to hold the weed cloth in place until I could hold it down with the MM, which it did. But when I disassembled my garden a few years later, I definitely noticed that the duct tape wasn't doing anything anymore. It's no match for dirt and water.

Good point Gwennifer. I notivced when I water it does come out one end more than the rest. I may caulk. Here in So Cal better not to let too much water escape. :0 And I hear you about the duct tape. It is a temp solution at best. Thanks for the feedback. I was going to nail in the weed cloth and then I thought "What?!!!" No need. The MM did the holding down part.
