I have a question when building a Raised Garden what type of soils should I use? I have heard that you should have 3 different types of soil in a raised garden bed, what types should one put in or mix together?

If you could give me some information on building a raised garden I would be very thankful for the information.

Should one put drainage in it?

Should one use soaker hoses to water it?

Should one put a stone base for it?

When using wood for the sides should one use Yellow Pine or what type of wood?

How thick should the boards be and how wide?

Should one put a liner inside the garden on the boards?
