Raised bed over chicken wire?
I have 2 dogs and a fence that is wire over rail and does not quite reach to the ground. we just bought this house but we will only be here for a couple of years so we don't want to put much money into it. I was thinking to keep the dogs from digging out I would bury chicken wire around the perimeter. I also thought that I could maybe put a raised garden bed over the chicken wire so it isn't so ugly, and plant pole beans, corn, sunflowers around the edge to hide the wire fence. Thoughts?
Yes you can plant raised beds atop the chicken wire. I recently built some raised garden beds and laid down some diamond mesh underneath. It's s normally used for plaster & concrete projects. It's comes 27"X96" , and only costs about $9, which I bought at Lowes. I used it to keep out burrowing animals. I poured the dirt right over it into the raised beds. Works like a charm. My veggies are doing very well. Sounds like you have a good idea. Hope this helps.
