Overwintering dahlias in pots

I grow mine in pots, I move them into the greenhouse before they have finished flowering & let them dry out, then cut them down & move the pots into the garage for the winter, no need to uproot them as long as you let them dry out beforehand.

Then in the spring I move them back to the greenhouse, never lost 1 yet.

I have never seen a fence put together like that one, not by a professional anyway, the boards should either be overlapping or have larger gaps with boards  on the other side, ie hit & miss, no gravel board either.
