A comment on the dimensions of raised gardens. I have found that a height of 25cm (10 inches) gives plenty of depth for almost any plants, and is deep enough to stop serious drying out. Since birds are often a problem I make mine the size of half a roll of wire netting. The mesh is 5 metres long (16'5")) by 3 feet wide (910mm). Brads in the top of the boards make a simple clip-on fit.
