Hi!Just wondering if the 4x4 beds would work better placed against the fence, and a little narrower, so you can reach all the way across. That would give you room for another bed, or a wider bed right there in the middle. I grow cukes on the fence, which works pretty well for me.
If you have deer in your area, do they bother the cuc’s on your fencing? I tried a couple different cucs here down by the coop in areas that were not fenced, and they were just a deer buffet. I have some growing up on the patio this year they haven’t found...yet...
I considered having more length of beds along the fence... kind of like a border of beds all along the inside of the garden.
3’ would still be a little too wide, not really for planting, but i think that would be too wide for harvesting anything on the fence side.
2’ would be OK width wise for the border bed, but I thought that would allow so much of what I grow to be potentially poking through the fence. I do like the look of a garden fence lined w/ an inside and outside planting bed, though. I will have a bed on the outside of the fence for various deer resistant flowers. Lavender, etc...
I’m sure this won’t be the final layout design. It’s fun considering all the ideas!
