I had an idea to build a hugel bed with a substantial moat around it.
Then I thought.
How would I get to the plants? Besides a good hop.
A plank! I thought. Have an old door or some 2x4s, a bridge...

Then I thought it would be cool to have a drawbridge for aesthetics (all function and no form makes Timmy a robot).
I can't wait to try this.

Minyamoo,
The topic really caught my interest! Just wondering if you have made any progress on it yet? When you do, could you post a photo?
