I’m working on having a container garden with raised beds as we all know that back is getting no younger!

To start here is the mess of a garden I had. Couple of boxes out of scrap wood. As we progress you will see I like to repurpose as much as possible.

Here we added more fence to keep the deer, dogs and everything else out. Lol along with some mulch.

Here I used some materials that we had on the property when we moved in. Wanted a box to accommodate fabric pots. I like the fabric pot BTW

Up and running now but I still want to build a bench. A couple more boxes and a pergola for the wife to enjoy her flowers.

Had an old head board I turned into a potting station.

Welcome to the forums @Jbum :) It certainly looks as if you`ve been busy!
The first tip I have for you is to update your profile. I think if your fellow countrymen know where you are gardening and what zone you come under, they will find it easier to offer advice and comments.

Here in England I`m also trying to make some new gardens, and your pictures made me smile. During lockdown in this pandemic we have all shared, the local landowner has had to halt the game shooting (which I loathe) and there are hundreds of horrible red legged french partridges running around in flocks, which eat or trash almost everything I try to grow. Throw in a few rabbits too, and it has become nightmare. We have resorted to fencing bits off with chicken wire and canes to try to protect stuff. Your enclosures look so professional (y)
