Just moved into our new construction (1st house :) ) and had about 2 1/2 pallets of bricks leftover. I plan to use these bricks to construct a small (two brick high) raised flowerbed that fills the gap between the house and walkway. Space is approximately 3 feet wide by 50 feet long. Have several questions:
1. Can I pour the concrete foundation directly against the foundation of the walkway or do I need to place some type of barrier in between the walkway slab and what I pour?
2. Since the current bed is already set for drainage, do I need to do anything else since all I am doing is raising the overall height of the bed by about 4 inches?
3. Is any additional insulation/protection needed for the house brick and the flower bed? There is nothing currently and the is area should not be increased as the whole flower bed has sloped mulch.
Thanks for the time and input in advance.
