Adding PVC hoops. Landscape designer Erin Lau added removable PVC hoops in the raised beds for tomato hothouses or cold frames. This is easy enough to do this after the beds are built. You’ll need two sizes of PVC pipes (one that will fit like a sleeve over the other); Kraft suggests ¾-inch and 1-inch pipes. You’ll attach them to the boxes with galvanized conduit clips.Cut the larger PVC pipes into 6-inch lengths using the chop saw. Fasten them inside the walls of the 4-by-4s using the galvanized conduit clips. Make sure each pipe has a mate across from it. The tops of these PVC pieces should reach just above where the top of the soil in the bed will be. After the larger PVC pipes are in place, test the smaller pieces at the height you want the hoops to be and cut all pieces accordingly.

Pollinator beds. Three pollinator beds flank the raised beds at grade. Plants such as lavender, hyssop, salvias, yarrow and sunrose intermingle and attract beneficial insects and birds to the edibles that need their help with pollination. “This is especially necessary for plants such as squashes and cucumbers, which need to be visited multiple times by pollinators,” Lau says. Richardson is working on making his yard more attractive to pollinators too, with plantings and a beehive.
