Looking for some assistanceLooking for some assistance in building a raised garden bed directly on cement. I'll be using the landscape blocks that fit into each other with no mortar. My question is.... I thought I could just put the blocks directly on the cement but after purchasing them, I was informed they need to lay on a minimum of 1 inch of gravel/sand mixture. This seems like a nightmare as now won't sand and gravel continuously leak out of the bottom of my garden bed??? Not to mention cosmetically having the block stand on 1 inch of gravel seems would look a little odd? Apparently this is crucial so the blocks have settling space?? Can anyone confirm or deny this for me? Or share your experience with raised beds directly on concrete??? Thanks!
