DIY Raised Bed Garden Fence

1 Day

Keep those pesky critters out and give your garden a finished look with this DIY fence!
You'll want to begin by measuring the area you want to fence in. Our garden area consisted of four 4ft x 4ft raised beds with 2ft garden paths in between. So each side of the fence measured 10 ft.

Once you've determined the size of your area, you'll need to gather the lumber and supplies needed. The complete list is on our site, listed below, but for general planning purposes, we used
1×4 treated boards
Metal garden fencing (found in a roll in the garden center) 28 inches high
Staple gun and staples
L brackets
Gate Clasp
Once you've determined your area that needs fencing. Gather your supplies. Here's what we used:
1×4 treated boards
Metal garden fencing (found in a roll in the garden center) 28 inches high
Staple gun and staples
L brackets
Gate hinges and clasp
Basically, your fence will consist of rectangular panels made with 1x4's. Metal fencing is then secured onto each rectangular panel using a staple gun. For an exact diagram of our 10 ft. fence panels, visit our site. If your garden area has a panel longer than 6 ft, I recommend using another widthwise board in the middle of the panel for extra support. Our 10 ft. panels all had an extra board midway down.
Since we enclosed raised beds, we screwed our fence panels directly into the raised beds. This allowed for no wasted space on the outside of the beds, and eliminated the need for posts. If you have a row garden, you can certainly use these panels with rectangular posts.
Since there are no posts, use an L-bracket to connect where your fence panels come together. For the front of your garden, simply create three smaller panels, instead of one large one, and use the middle panel as your gate. Attach hinges and a clasp. There is a detailed diagram on our site of how we constructed our gate.
In the end, you'll have a clean, finished look to your garden area. This has been the perfect solution for our rabbit problem, and it keeps small hands from picking all of the veggies before they're ready. Enjoy!
