Iím building a stone wall in a customers back yard, 3 ft in front of there chain link fence. Customer wants it back filled with dirt and mulch. What do I use to prevent the dirt and mulch from falling through the fence? I was thinking of getting some pressure treated wood and cutting them to size and laying them up against the fence. Any suggestions

Sounds to me like there's no need for a wall.

Its what the customer wants. She wants some small shrubs and flowers. If I dont do it, shes gonna pay someone else

If you want to do it professionally, you should build a back wall against the fence using cinderblocks or something like that.

Pressure treated landscape timbers or block would be fine.Or the same stone you are useing for the front of the bed.

Why is the fence necessary? Could it be removed? If it's for a dog, suggest a radio collar system. If it's for a pool, consider a different material.
