Hi did you use all soil to fill these beds or anything at the bottom to fill in the space? I would like to build tall beds like these but trying to avoid using so much soil mix. Thanks

Generally we would put a base of 6-12" of crush gravel for drainage first, then filter cloth that will allow water through, then install the remaining soil. In our vegetable gardens we try to use a high quality organic soil. When it comes to the filter cloth, make sure it will let lots of water through otherwise you will get a very boggy soil.

Thank you for your response. It was very helpful. I can't wait to build some beds similar to these.
