Raised veggie beds and Potager Gardens

Vegetable gardens seem to be all the rage this season.
Here are a few photos of some veggie and potager gardens that we’ve designed and built over the years.

Beautiful! I hope to have a gorgeous backyard edible garden like that in the future. Those 2X12s in the garden with the gravel was fascinating. I have a gravel-like area in my yard. Were the boxes built on top of the gravel, or were they built and then the gravel poured around it?
