The deer were eating our tomatoes! We originally put a border around our garden using 2 x 8's, but we needed something more. Using picket fence panels to make a garden fence not only helped to protect our bounty from deer and such, but also added a pretty (and nostalgic) factor. Purchasing pre-assembled picket fence panels seemed the most cost effective way for us to fence in our vegetable garden area. Here's how we did it:
When we originally did the garden, we had a simple border made with 2x8's. We wanted to add protection and beauty...
We started with the corners. Handy Hubby attached the panels to the 2x8 that surrounded the garden. To see more details on getting started, click here.
Since we were working with an uneven ground, Handy Hubby cut down some panels as needed, keeping a fairly straight line on top. Sometimes a shorter width was need to fill in the spaces. See how we did it here.
And attached on the inside of the fence where the panels were joined. A gate was also cut in and hinged in place.
