Can I create a flower bed abudding cedar siding of house?
If you must have a garden along the side of the house, allow for an unplanted area at least a foot wide between the house and the garden...where nothing grows...where the soil can't touch the wood.
You're absolutely right...the wood will rot, and you'll be sending out an invitation to termites...in neon lights.
