How do you make a flower bed in front of a fence?
In Front of a Fence
- Level a 2-foot wide strip in front of the fence.
- Cut two 16-inch lengths of 4-by-4 for every 8 feet of bed, plus two for the end.
- Set a 2-foot 2-by-6 on its narrow end on a level surface.
- Place the end pieces at the ends of the raised bed with posts facing up.
What is the cheapest type of fence to put up?
PVC fencing. The cheapest way to create a fence for your home is by getting one made from PVC. Such fences substitute wooden pickets and stakes to offer your protection from the outside world. PVC sleeves improve the stability of wooden posts used as a fence, reducing the cost of material and the labor used.
How do you protect a fence from a flower bed?
If you want to protect the fence, I see three options:
- Cut the bottom end of the pickets so it’s no longer touching the dirt.
- Add stone/gravel to provide free-draining surroundings as you suggest.
- Remove some dirt near the fence (may be too much work, or against your landscape design goals).
What should I put between fence and soil?
Add stone/gravel to provide free-draining surroundings as you suggest. (I wouldn’t recommend plastic as it’s likely to just trap moisture against the fence and accelerate rot.) Remove some dirt near the fence (may be too much work, or against your landscape design goals).
How wide should a flower bed next to a fence be?
A perennial border bed along a fence or structure will only have a width of 2 or 3 feet, but a length as long as needed. The bed’s narrow width allows for easy access to all of the flowers and doesn’t overwhelm since it is meant as a border. An island or raised bed typically has a shorter length and more width.
