I want to use corrugated sheeting around my beds, can you get it in smaller widths or only in big wide sheets. Point me in the right direction please.

Gardenaholic - do you mean corrugated metal sheets? Or plastic?

The standard width is 800mm. You could ask the supplier if they can do custom widths if you plan to buy them new. Alternatively you could get second hand and cut them
to the desired width with an angle grinder. Use a thin cutting blade and it works well.

I want to use lengths to go around the beds that I have as the timber is starting to rot, so no good buying kits. There is a lot to do and the idea of cutting sheets down is something I was trying to avoid.

I used an angle grinder to cut mine and it was very straightforward. If you do this put the newly cut edge on the bottom as it can be quite sharp.

I got sheets of old roofing from Freecycle so it was a very cheap project - I see them on eBay and gumtree a bit too.


If you definitely want pre cut custom sizes I'd try the custom orders desk as Bunnings as a first step?
