Also, I've seen an inexpensive raised bed design using corrugated tin, hay bales, etc.
I've often thought that it would be interesting to try and do a saran wrap bed, using that plastic wrap they use to secure boxes on a pallet for shipping. It would be very cool to be able to see the roots, worms, etc... and to be able to tell if the soil was moist or dry, just by looking through the wrap. I suppose it would decompose into something bad for you, but still...you could stake out any shape you want and wrap it with 3 or 4 layers, then fill with dirt

    Help any ideas or picture links would really help!

    • Well, basically you are going for a very relaxed look.

      you could first have a zen corner, with possibly a comfortable chair or better, a pile of pillows. you could have a small bookshelf or table with book …illows
      - towels
      - silver picture frames with pictures in them of course
      - hanging lanterns
      - possibly a small fountain or waterfall

      good luck, and enjoy designing your new room!
