A garden fence can add style to your gardening spot.

  • White picket fences are ideal accents in adding charm to the landscape.

  • Instead of constructing the type that Tom Sawyer was unhappily made to whitewash, there are now picket fences designed from durable PVC!

  • Aside from being decorative, these enclosures are maintenance free.

  • Once the vegetable garden is fenced in, the fencing is guaranteed not crack, fade, peel, rust, rot, or ever need painting!

    Brick or stone walls are decorative, and protect your garden area from wind and the elements.

    Wrought iron also makes a lovely and long-lasting garden fence.

    Be creative! Recycles materials can be used to make the attractive fences with a little imagination and effort.

    Avoid using any fences constructed of pressure treated lumber which is saturated with toxic chemicals.

    The toxins make the wood a potential hazard to children and pets, making its use unsuitable in an edible garden.

    Garden Fence Plans for Defense

    Whether you will need fencing installed for your vegetable garden depends on where the plot is located.

    In many areas a vegetable garden fence is needed to defend the plants from wildlife such as deer, opossums, rabbits, skunks, and turtles.

    As the saying goes, good fences make good neighbors!

    A fence may be your only defense against damage from woodland invaders like deer, groundhogs, or raccoons.

    If there is no urgency to construct a barrier, a good idea is to start small and decide from there just how popular your garden is with the natives!

    Fences to Keep Out the Wild Critters

    Do not be intimidated by the wild animals scheming to find their way in to your garden. Installing a vegetable garden fence is very easy to do!

    Most animal raiders who drop by for a midnight snack are basically timid and do not like to be caught up in enclosed spaces.

    You cannot really blame the creatures for wanting to taste the delectable vegetables!

  • It may be necessary to install a vegetable garden fence tall enough to keep out the deer and bury parts of it underground against critters like the groundhog.
  • No Dogs and Cats Allowed...

    At times even tame creatures such as dogs or cats must be kept out of your garden.

    No one really wants their garden patch to be a free restroom for the neighborhood pets!

    Use a Fence to Bounce Sunshine

    Last, a garden fence can help overcome the drawbacks of a shady spot in your garden.

    Erecting a light colored fence in the sunniest part of the site can reflect sunlight into shaded areas.

    Garden Fence Costs

    There is a wide variety of wire garden fences that are not extremely costly.

    An advantage with wire is that it can be moved easily.

    Chain link fencing is one of the most popular styles but is more expensive, requiring fasteners and aluminum posts.

    Another option is wooden fences which also require fence-post setting.

    Wrought iron fences will add beauty while being virtually maintenance free. They are among the most expensive fences to install.

    Permanent structures will be reflected in the higher price.

    Protect your valued plants at all costs from the time they are planted in the garden until they land on your table!
