*** Great to fill up a large raised bed, and add the planting on top. Next season will have great soil. Lasagna Gardening Layers - no dig gardening! Just layer and plant - this creates it's own soil even where there is none.
I don't have a fence, but like this idea. Find old windows, replace the glass with mirrors and put these on your fence (if you can). The mirrored image of your garden on the fence will make your yard look bigger. It's an easy trick!
