Hello everyone. I have decided I want to try out gardening again, and I'm planning on building a garden box. I think I'll do fine building the thing, but I'm not sure where to put it. The logical spot in my yard would be on top of a mulched area. I don't really want to put it on top of the grass, because if I end up not keeping up with the garden, I'll end up eventually having to re-sod that area.
So I'm wondering if putting it on top of mulch will work? I would guess it will be fine in terms of plant health. I am more concerned with the fact that mulch might not make a very stable base, and it will not create much of a "seal" between the box and what it is sitting on (hope that makes sense). I imagine it might be hard to level as well.
If putting it on top of the mulch won't work, then it would be possible to move all the mulch. I'm just not dying to do that unless it's truly necessary.
Ok, any advice you have about this would be appreciated. Thanks!
