Raised garden beds and planter boxes turned this fence into a backyard feature.





The project


Workshop member John turned a fence into a wonderful backyard feature by incorporating raised garden beds and planter boxes into the design. He considered building smaller garden beds and a bigger seat in the middle to provide an even more welcoming environment for all to enjoy. The original design looked too small so he used the middle space as a stand for a potted grass tree instead.
