In my second year of gardening in this old lawn site, I used logs as the side for raised beds and topped the beds with some manure compost then a few inches of wood chips. This year, the pill bugs and earwigs decimate all seedlings. That wasn't a problem last year, before the wood chips.
I had to replant everything, starting it all indoors. I have a friend who drinks a lot of soda, so I use the 2-liter bottles as tubes to keep the pill bugs out and slow down the earwigs from discovering the plants until they get bigger.
