How do I make raised beds

17 years ago

My property is very level (way too level actually). I want to make some raised beds to give a little character. My question, how do I do this?? The soil is sandy and the area has no shade. I want to make quite a few raised areas, in the middle of my yard, on a corner, and in front of my house. What kind of material do I need, dirt, peat moss, etc... Also do I combine the sand with the new material? Is there a certain percentage (75% black dirt - 25% peat moss) or other guideline I should go by? I will be ordering from landscaping co so I can buy in bulk. Looking for something economical also.
