That sure is a nice looking fence...and cedar to boot.
But...not meaning to throw a wrench into your thinking about planting but the fence looks pretty tight...i.e. no light appears to be able to poke through and what plants you have in mind do need light and that fence seems to be able to provide lots of shade if in certain exposures.

Peachy, we have one of those behind the tractor tillers...they are great for large areas...we use it on the veggie garden in the spring. The tines cut deeper than the average garden tiller. What this guy has is wonderful for new garden beds....perfect for Birdie's needs and way easier than doing all that digging..UGH!

Birdie, can't wait to see the finished product now! You go girl!

We have BIG tractors. Way too big to fit inside the yard fence where I want a new flower bed. I've always wanted one that I could operate. That one is just the right size. It looks like a mower with an attachment on the front and the back.

That looks like a Kubota to me.

I would plan on putting down layers of newspaper or cardboard in between the flowers to keep the weeds and grass down. Wish I had done that several years. I am cutting down on my gardening space now. I have been thinking about converting my vegetable garden into a bed of tall zinnias next year. A friend of mine has huge beds of them this year and they are gorgeous. Good luck with your planting.
