Re: My garden bed front fence.

@Krustyfundoh It's not in the ground at all actually. I used Cypress. Basically it's 4 posts down each side with the 200x50 capping and the tin tying it together. The only change I would make would be to have something running across the middle pulling it together as it wants to sag because it's so big and there's so much pressure with 5 cubic metres of volume in there.

 

Good luck! Can't wait to see some pics when you're done.

Re: Garden bed front fence

Hi @Doonesbaby, it's going really well thanks! I just planted out both beds with self seeded cherry tomato plants so am expecting to feed the street this summer. 

 

The only element I would change would be to have built in support across the bed as they bowed a little when I first put soil in them. Otherwise they just get a light sand back and another oil every year or two.
