I'm building a square foot garden bed with an 8" wide stone wall around it. The wall will be short--only a foot high, so I'll be able to sit/stand/work on it. Should I still make the bed 4 feet wide, or should I shrink it to 3 feet so I won't have a problem reaching the middle? I'd really like that extra foot, but am I going to find it difficult to work around that wall? Any thoughts?

I just finished building my boxes using 8x8x16 cinder blocks, and I don't have a problem reaching.

I think you'll be disappointed if you don't go 4 feet wide. You'll only be saving 6 inches of reach from each side.

Why not sit on the edge of a deck or stairs to see how far you can comfortably reach.
