Growing up on a farm in Iowa, you'd think I have a
natural green thumb...sadly, you are wrong. But somehow,
I've managed to grow a small garden in our backyard,
how much our little garden has taken off since we
first planted everything HERE.
With a bountiful of greens however, come a few late
night stragglers, nibbling away at our pretty
leaves...the buggers! I picked up a roll of green
fence and a few posts from Home Depot and my
DH (dear hubby) sweetly installed a barrier
directly around the box. Ahem.
With no way of getting to the garden, he widened
the fence, adding a few extra poles and a quick gate
for easy access. For ease of disassembly if needed,
the fence is attached to the posts with zip ties.
The gate was made using 3 fence boards, the tops cut
off, one of which was chopped in half. A few quick
zaps of the nail gun with a few screws for reinforcement,
at the corners. A small piece of fence was stapled
onto the back and the gate zip tied to one of the posts.
The gate needs to be stained to match the
garden box but so far, it's been keeping the critters
out and the garden is able to flourish inside.
