The basic principles for the 1/3 fill method are best suited for larger sided raised beds around 15 inches or higher. For smaller raised beds you can use a modified version. Fill in layers using yard materials like sticks, logs, leaves, grass, compost in various levels of decay and earth from edging beds or old containers. Save money verses expenses bagged products and the cost of fertilizers. You really dont need either.
