Slope towards fence: raised bed or no?
I want to put a perennial bed at the corner of the backyard fence. The yard slopes somewhat to the fence, so the fence is a bit lower than where the front edge will begin.
It's not a huge slope, probably like the photo link below, or not quite as much. (I just googled, not my pic)
What I'm wondering is if I need to edge this bed in at the back (maybe a plank of cedar) and raise it so it's more level? Or should I just go with the way it is? My main concern is erosion.
I haven't planned out the bed yet, but I suspect the back (at the fence) will be Joe Pye weed and butterfly weed. Maybe some morning glories. I don't know what else, but shorter things in front. LOL.
