Can I create a bed over wall foundations?

Asked 3 years 2 months ago by Liz G

I have recently moved to a house with a bit of an unkempt garden, but which has a lovely big wall down one side. I want to dig a bed next to the wall and grow climbing plants up it. However, on further investigation it turns out that about 8 inches down you hit the wall foundation, which goes quite far out. From reading around I understand that you need more like 18 inches for most climbers. I'd rather avoid a raised bed if I can because it sounds like quite they need a lot more maintenance, but maybe that's the only option. I would be interested to hear your thoughts.
