    I'm working on some raised beds made out of cedar for the backyard. Ideally I'm imagining something that involves several large raised beds (about 4'x8' each) plus a chicken coop w/run all surrounded by a quaint fence (aka: something similar to a picket fence, just a little more secure). I'd like the coop to still have a run so that the chickens don't destroy the veggies in the summer, but still have the entire thing fenced in so that they can free range in the garden in the fall/winter.

    Does anything have such a thing? I'd love to see some pictures for inspiration!

    Thanks!
