Below are pictures and examples of wooden garden fences for do-it-yourself projects.
Build a simple and inexpensive wood fence for your vegetable garden as a weekend project using just a few basic tools!
A wood fence stands to mark the property line, or it may be used to separate areas that have different uses.
Wooden fencing can be an attractive way to shield your garden from prying eyes, animals, and other pests.
At the end of the gardening season, most vegetable gardens just aren't that attractive anymore, but a cute wooden fence will always look great.
Whichever the intended purpose, wooden fences become a part of the landscape design and can be pleasing to the eye as well as functional.
Though stone, masonry, and wire are often used to build walls and fences, wood is by far the most popular building material.
It is easy to work with, relatively cheap, and possesses a natural beauty.
It can be adapted to many different kinds of fences, from a low, open screen that helps to divide an area within the land, to a tall, solid barrier that provides security or blocks an unpleasant view.
The basic materials for wooden fences include wood, hardware, and preservative coatings.
You will also need gravel, and concrete mix for installing posts.
The best woods to use for fences are redwood and cedar; both have natural resistance to rotting.
A well-built redwood fence will last for generations with little maintenance necessary.
Redwood is also one of the most attractive woods for fences.
Its only disadvantage is its price, and cedar is priced high as well!
The first step when planning wooden garden fences, is to determine local building codes regarding fences.
Most cities have restrictions on height and distance from the street or property line.
Also, consult your neighbor beforehand, if the fence is to be built on or near a property line.
Use a plot plan of your property to sketch out the layout of the fence.
Then use the drawing and measurements to determine how much lumber is needed.
The exact method will depend on what kind of wooden garden fences you are constructing.
