We are putting our first SFG together this week. We're planning to have chain link going around the garden to keep the cats and dogs out of the garden. As I plan the tall trellising plants, should I plan to have a separate trellis/support structure for these, or can I put a rectangular planter up against the chain link fence? What are the pros and cons?

An alternative is to do something like: http :// gardenista.com/posts/dees-story-from-debris-pile-to-edible-garden-in-four-months (you'll need to delete the spaces for the link to work), with a more basic, lightweight fencing. I think if I do a lightweight fence, I would need some additional structures.

I suppose that if I plant onto the chain-link, the tomatoes, etc will grow on both sides of the fence, which might defeat the purpose of the fence.

Would really appreciate some advice.

glad you\'re here to the forum first of all. Just my opinion bt I think you could make it work on your chainlink fence as long as the posts are properly cemented just tie the tomatoes to the fence as they grow! You could easily grow peas and beans up it too! Have fun! Or you could try it both ways and see what works best for you!
