What kind of wood was used in the raised beds?

Nice layout. I really like that the designer though out the consequence of what the soil would do to fence if it would touch it. By providing a space and a board the dirt / compost will have a less likely chance to encourage rot there. If it has been done, or not a liner could be attached to the inner timbers to prolong the life of the raised beds. Again nice work and design.

We have a single story ranch style house inTexas. On one end we have enclosed a 3 car garage to make a large master BR/bath/closet. My dilemma is how to finish the outside wall so it doesn't look like a garage was there. It is 42' long with 6/12 hip roof and brick on top.

How much did this cost to build?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. San Francisco backyard cottage. Even homes with a yard smaller than this one often have room for special touches. This yard has many inspiring small-space ideas — readers particularly liked the raised garden beds.
