We lost all our apricots to fruit fly, and plums to parrots, last year, so I'm not taking any chances! Cockatoos are circling too, the bastards! The dogs have already been digging in the new beds, so it may need covering all the time.
Another reason is a lot of sleepers come in at 2.4m, so you can make a roughly 2x1m bed without spending ages cutting everything piece of wood you have.Is there a specific reason for planters generally being around 2x1m? Is there any reason I shouldn't do a longer stretch or a more narrow one?
I hear you. It does look good once you get there but it is fair slog of effort to get it all done.I have a love hate relationship with gardening, hate getting started on it but then like the final product and push to get it done to see the results. I still have some fences to do to hide and contain the bins, plus the front fence but here is a crappy before shot and some after shots. Next section is the other side of the driveway where most of it poisoned by my lovely neighbour which I am part way through.
