We are on a hill and catch the wind quite a lot. My worry is that it will be rather exposed if I just do mounds or raised beds. So I'm almost certain in my head that I need a fixed design, get the structure in and then plant around to soften. Then veg. But I think with cost it won't be ready for this season. Maybe for the winter veg.
I haven't quite Sussex how to make the most if my veg and flower bed in the winter period. It's that bleak time that worries me the most with putting beds in the front.
Don't get me wrong I'm not hung up totally on neatness and looks but with the beds being at the front they will be surveyed by all! The neighbours down the lane knew I had new flower beds at the front before I even cut the first sod, if you know what I mean.
