This garden is unbelievably gorgeous. I see it is in a wooded environment. Curious if the fence helps to deter the critters! Would love to adapt this to my new home. What do they say about flattery?

cedar - Did you use 4x4 and 1x's for building this? Is that a wire in the same area you have the garden tools hanging from, what's on top of it?

We did use 4x4's for the posts and wrap them in 1x cedar. The client added the other things you mentioned after the fact to hold more tools. The top bar is supporting a wire mesh for the plants to grow up

We constructed the base of the garden out of 21A gravel and put the decorative gravel on top. There is probably 6-8" of base before it gets to the soil, and we have landscape fabric separating the gravel and soil.

Was fencing designed to deter deer? - I've all but given up on such a garden because of the deer. Is this structure tall enough and strong enough to keep deer out? Its so beautiful!

A couple I know has a fenced raised bed garden. The fence is only 4' tall but what keeps the deer out is they pick up all their dog poop around the inside fenced area and place it around the perimeter fence line. The deer smell the poop and know there are dogs inside the fence. They haven't lost one vegetable to deer.

Dessa that is a good idea. I know that some people have to get ten feet high vinyl fencing to keep the deer out. Make sure to ask the fencing person before you buy - they might have a few ideas too.

This is beautiful. I have been trying to come up with a garden plan to fit my needs, this is perfect. I especially love that it isn't to busy with too much hard-scaping. My space seems to be about the same size. I was wondering what are the measurements of the 'squares' and the size of the cobblestones used? Also is it fed through drip irrigation?

Thank you for helping those of us who are design challenged ; )

The fence is constructed out of a rough sawn cedar, and those are tumbled cobblestones that we have surrounding the beds

I love this! It is beautiful. My poor husband has so many yard projects. But I'm going to start working on him to add this to his list. It would look amazing in my yard. Btw...we live just north of Dallas and have chicken wire around our vegetable garden and also around our beautiful iron fence to keep the bunnies out. It works! We do not have a problem with deer...just small animals. Anyway I love you design!!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Gardening with Confidence® added this to Southeast Gardener's January Checklist
Consider vegetables. A warm January day is a good excuse to get outside and work your garden soil. If you have not had the soil tested in a couple of years, now is a good time to do so. A soil test will give you an assessment of pH and if you need other nutrients, such as lime.Soil recommendations are based on what you are growing or planning to grow. For example, blueberries need a pH of around 4.8, whereas strawberries prefer 5.8 to nearly neutral.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to How to Grow Your Own Sweet Summer Crops
Get started. Snow may be covering your yard, or rain may be keeping you inside, but you can still get a jump on starting your summer garden by deciding what you want to grow and, possibly more important, where in your yard you want to grow it. Winter or early spring is also a good time to map out a garden design and figure out your timeline for preparing the garden beds and doing the all-important planting.How to grow the top crops of summer
MarigoldAnother constant bloomer is marigold. It has cheerful yellow and orange blooms, and it forms a nice, 6- to 10-inch clump when mature. But its natural ability to repel bugs and even deer may be even better than its appearance. This makes marigolds ideal companions in your edible container gardens.Marigold seeds are long, very light and can blow away easily, so be sure to sow in a spot free from drafts. Wait to plant your marigold seedlings outside after the last frost.Botanical name: Tagetes patulaUSDA zones: N/A; treat as an annualWater requirement: Medium moisture; well-drained soilLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 6 to 12 inches tall and wide
