When growing vegetables in raised garden beds using the Square Foot Gardening method, your beds will need to be sectioned off into one-foot sections called planting squares.
They are perfect for the disabled gardener, those suffering from arthritis, and the elderly as they can be elevated to a suitable level so that bending over and kneeling will not be necessary.
This type of planting will discourage insects and specific vegetable pathogens that can stay in the soil over winter and planting that same crop in that bed will infect the crop.
Number of anchors per board: (Usable Length / Spacing for anchors) - 1. For my beds, I need 7 separators for each 8 foot board and 3 for each 4 foot board.
