I would construct a trellis or teepee (3 stakes in the ground attached at the top in a teepee form) in the garden for the cucumbers to climb up on. They will remain more productive if they can grow upwards and your other plants won't be strangled by the cucumber's vigorous growth. Hope you have a great harvest!
