Various Garden Fencing Materials

 Chicken Wire Fencing:

This is by far the most used form of fencing. It is cheap and provides good enough barrier to keep the pests at bay.

A 3 feet high chicken wire can save your garden from most of the small and medium-sized animals. Buy a chicken wire which is at least 4-5 feet wide. Bend it into an L shape. Position it around the sight in such a way that at least one feet of that wire should remain underground.

Brick walls or Stone walls:

  1. Never seen a fence like that before. Half the fence is different than the other half. Most have taken a long time to get all of those rocks in those metal cages. It is very unique. Don't know if my wife would like if I put one in our backyard. http://www.amazingfencing.com.au/products/colorbond-fencing/

  2. Really it is awesome to soon fence like this. i never ever seemed before like this. http://www.lykfencingworks.com/services.html

  3. Oh my goodness! The intermittent rock wall with those wooden fence planks are immensely tasteful in design! I've never seen anything like this before with the rocks piled up within a metal cage. Where did you get this idea for a fence? You mentioned under the picture to use used materials and even chicken wire. Is that what you guys used for the metal cage to hold the rocks? By far, this is one of the most outstanding fences I've ever witnessed!

  4. That rock put in between the fence is wild looking. How strong of chain link do you need to support the rocks? I would love to do something like that for my home. I bet it would be a great sound barrier.

  8. Building a fence around my garden seems like a great way to protect it. I've always thought that white picket fences around vegetable gardens look really cute. I'm concerned about animals burrowing under it after I had a few moles crawl around under my yard last year. Your tip to use chicken wire seems like a great way to prevent critters from crawling under my fence, so I'll see to it that it's installed with enough chicken wire. Thanks for the tips!

  10. Wow, what an impressive work that was done on piling up all those heavy rocks and putting them inside a fence like that. That to me is pretty cool and it is giving me some ideas on what to do for my fence. The thing that I would probably do before starting is finding the fencing supplies to create such a fence.

  11. After reading the third paragraph in the fencing material section, I was really pleased to find some advise about the underground barrier to save your crops from burrowing animals. I really have been wondering of a way to take care of that issue this next growing season with my garden. Another thing I thought would be useful if the first line of defense isn't enough was your suggestion of putting an electrical fence there to indefinitely keep those little intruders out of your garden. I'm going to have to remember the underground barrier when we have our fence installed this Spring. Thanks!
