Setting up a new garden takes a little effort. But if you can roll with that, pretty soon you’ll be growing your own fruits and vegetables. Plus, you can always find a way to cultivate some common household herbs in your kitchen’s window box! Whether you’ve picked up a new hobby during your time spent in quarantine or just want to play in the dirt, watch as a garden fence blooms before your very eyes!
Put Up the Posts
Every fence needs a solid set of posts. These posts help prevent them from leaning, toppling, or going crooked. The same principle applies to garden fences the same way as the one you’ve raised around your backyard swimming pool. That’s why you need to start by putting up the posts first. Post-hole diggers or augurs are going to be the two best tools for the job. Metal T-posts will provide even more reinforcement than just plain wood alone can do.
String Up the Wire
After you’ve done that, it’s time to start running the wire mesh. Arrange the wire so that it is facing out instead of in; by doing this, you can keep wild animals from damaging your garden fence. Then use fencing staples and zip ties to secure the mesh more tightly.
Add Some Hardware Cloth
You might be wondering why hardware cloth makes a difference – or what it is in the first place! This add-on keeps the rabbits and squirrels out of your garden. To pull this off, you’ll need to dig a wide and shallow trench around the perimeter of your garden. Bury one foot of the cloth, folding it towards the exterior of the fence. This tactic will stop burrowing animals from eluding your otherwise smartly designed defenses.
Install a Sturdy Gate
Although climbing fences and jumping over their top railing is fun, it’s not always the safest idea. Getting in and out of your garden should be easy to do, even if all you wanted to do was cut the grass. For this reason, you’re going to want a high-quality fence gate. One ingenious way to pull this off is by using a storm door, some wooden posts and beams, hinges, and an eye hook latch to fasten the gate.
