Very nice. I can just imagine how awesome this all could be if you'd consider grass between beds.

the soil is extremely saline here nothing grows well, I tried small patches but they are not doing good... the soil in these beds is from two full dumper trucks... this garden is here for this current year as we will be inshaAllah shifting to our new home next year, which is in construction nowadays...
