Fencing for raised beds

Posted: 26/03/2013 at 23:23
Yes I am posting like its going out of fashion but while its cold and miserable the mind just keeps ticking over with projects. I'm looking to put raised veg beds at the front if my house. In thinking about fencing or willow hurdles or 'something' instant for screening. Does anyone have experience of this? How long does it last? Does it fade, flop, rot?? Any better suggestions? Has a one else put this around raised beds to shield/hide the veg at the front??

Thanks blairs. The next door neighbour is entirely veg but he has hedging so you can't see a thing. As you can see its neat and tidy and I don't want to change until we are clear what do so so it doesn't look like a bomb site. I want to put a greenhouse where the car is at the bottom but my partner is worried about it being so close to the road!

Left hand side of rear garden, raised bed for limited veg. Dog run has been moved next to shed so I can put my large plastic greenhouse up when weather improves....
