Lancashire, United Kingdom
I have a very small square yard and along the 3 walls; gate in one corner I want to build a high raised bed along the perimeter say about 4ft high plus to keep this cheap I was thinking of using breeze block and painting the outside of it. I want it high to plant shrubs like Berberis darwinii for extra security up againts trellis. The walls around the garden are about 5ft without the trellis ~ hope this makes sense? Just wondered if I need to line the breeze block for the bushes or do I need to use the brick seal solution on the outside of the breeze block? Or is this just a really bad idea! It should look like a high shrub fence but I can then use the rest of the square yard for table and chairs plus some nice plants, pots etc.
