Does anyone know where I can get galvanized metal sheets? I am working on a raised bed that will grow up against an existing structure. The side of the structure is wire fencing. My idea is to have beans, etc grow up the fence. The sides were going to be block and then a metal sheet on the side with the wire fencing. I was going to use some extra metal roofing until I realized that I didn't know what the manufacturer painted it with. So I nixed that idea. I can use block if I have to but thought metal would be better on one side.

something to think about.

The metal will get hot and hold the heat. If the sun shines on it will have a good chance of kill plants. I think it was Mr Ward who once posted about having some metal (fence if my memory serves me) getting hot from the sun and damaging plants. Ward correct me if i'm wrong.

Thanks for the input. I decided to go with block. This is my first time using it. I understand I may have to deal with a alkalinity more then usual.
