I'll also tag some other handy Workshop members like @Brad@ProjectPete and @redracer01 for you who also might have some advice.

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 :smile:

@fishingfan I used 1mm cutting disk on an angle grinder and clamped a piece of angle iron to the sheet as a guide.

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?

Hi @Pirihira,

 

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.
