Raised & Enclosed Garden Bed

Gardening is a pleasant activity but it can be difficult when critters eat your produce and destroy your plants – apparently, they love fresh food too. If they are a problem in your garden, then here’s a DIY construction project that would keep them out of your plants for you!

Raised & Enclosed Garden Bed

By building a fully enclosed garden bed, critters such as squirrels, rats, possums and any other animal that trespasses your garden won’t be able to get to your produce anymore. You can also choose to build an enclosure without the roof if your only problem is your naughty dog. ;)

This garden project also includes the raised garden bed concept which makes tending to plants easier.

That’s two gardening concerns addressed in one project! Clever isn’t it?
