    looks good! I've had one random call for it. I don't advertise for it though

    I do a good amount of irrigation for veggie beds, and we have done a few stone retaining walls for raised veggie beds

    Those look good I think that idea could be big in a lot areas. Concerning the drip, are you sure that the drip is going to do the job for the entire bed? We have a lot of experience with drip and the type of soil that a lot of people
    plant in has toooo much compost to transfer water. So we are going to put liner under the bed to trap all the water. We also noticed that some of the soil that we get transfer water much better than others....our experience is in flower beds. .....Anyway this is really a good idea.

    yeh, done a few, enjoy them, have rigged up irrigation, but like homemade ****, i took the kind you stick in the ground, took the plastic off, hooked up some pvc, and let that **** rip from 4 corners. works well enough, and is cheaper.
