I just put in 30 strawberry plants. I dug out an area that my grey water goes to, put in some wire mesh and then mounded the dirt, mauer and straw/leaves on it. I edged it, then put weed barrier on top, tucked that in really good and planted the strawberries in through little slits. It looks so nice! I dug out another area in another garden and did the same thing, only I will plant squash.
