looks great. How do you cut that wrought iron ?

Thanks for joining in the discussion @fishingfan. I'm sure @moshiach77 will get back to you as soon as possible and answer your question about cutting the corrugated sheeting. I'll also tag some other handy Workshop members like @Brad, @ProjectPete and @redracer01 for you who also might have some advice.
Welcome to Workshop. Please post whenever you need assistance with a project or have something new to share. We look forward to reading all about your projects and plans.
Traditional way is to use niblers, I have a metal cutting circular saw and you could also use a multitool or a jigsaw. A cutting disk in an angle grinder will do it but you will have to live with the bur it leaves and either cover it or clean it up and keeping the cut straight can be a problem. Snips if you like a manual option.
Another useful thing is a guide clamp. https://www.bunnings.com.au/craftright-50-aluminium-clamp-and-cutting-guide_p5860136
Nice work @moshiach77 - given the fact the cut ends are covered/concealed, I'd probably just rip through it with an angle grinder and give yourself an opportunity to practice cutting straight lines on wonky material.
Otherwise @Brad's suggestions all work too
thanks for the advice
another job added to the list
@fishingfan I used 1mm cutting disk on an angle grinder and clamped a piece of angle iron to the sheet as a guide.
Thanks again for sharing this project @moshiach77. It's already proved very popular.

Hi all, I have built some raised U-shaped pallet gardens.
My question is . . .
1. what goes in next?
Rocks? Stones? Shingle? branches?
2. How much high?
Welcome to Workshop.
This previous Workshop discussion should get you started - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Garden/What-soil-for-filling-a-raised-garden-bed/m-p/14205
What you use to fill your new garden beds really depends on what you plan to grow and the size of the beds. If you'd like to provide more detail, and better still, provide a photo, I'm sure our clever and helpful members will be more than happy to assist.
I have been searching for raised garden bed ideas for a couple of months now. Hopefully this will help me make my own.
You've certainly come to the right place @lucas! Welcome to the Workshop community.
I trust you will also find these resources really helpful:

That looks great!
Nice to be in this community, very new to gardening and DIYs and so excited to learn from all of you.
I wanted to improve my backyard by adding some DIY raised bed but not sure of where to start. is there a workshop for this? would also want to know what are the costs involved. Thirdly, would anyone know where to source a galvanised planter box that's hollow (no bottom part - not even sure if this makes sense.)
I love this !!!!!
As mentioned above, do check out these resources:
Then if you have any questions about a specific project of your own, I'd encourage you to start a new discussion.
