The logs can be sitting outdoors but have to be rotted to break down correctly. Rotting logs can hold water and allow drainage. They provide the soil with nutrients for a new raised garden bed. They are put at the bottom of the container and often have branches and other rotting wood added on top. The bin is filled with organic soil on top of the logs that can come from composting or your local garden center. The organic soil is added over the logs and tamped down. This provides good soil to grow plants successfully.
