Gardens can bring a lot into your life. They can help cut down on organic produce costs, and they’re a great hobby if you like being outdoors. But gardens can also bring a lot of frustration and pests if you don’t prepare for them. Here’s how a fence can help.
1. Fences keep unwanted creatures out of your garden.
If you’re growing something tasty in your garden, every four-legged thing in the neighborhood will try to get access to it. You need a strong barrier that can keep rabbits away, as well as the family pet. Taller fences can also stop deer from eating your plants. A garden fence is different from general fencing because it is designed to create a subsurface barrier, too, that prevents rodents from digging their way in. The thin, sturdy materials also mean you can check over your garden at a glance to make sure nothing has jumped or flown inside.
2. You can secure netting to your garden fence.
Speaking of pests flying inside, no garden protection is complete without something to keep birds away. The most common trick is to cover particularly vulnerable plants with netting. Instead of draping the netting directly on the plants, where tenacious birds can still get access to the produce and flowers, connect it to the fence perimeter. Because each panel is a grid, you can create tight netting ceilings and subdivisions that keep pests out without being messy.
3. Garden fences give you another dimension for growing.
Some plants need a vertical surface to grow. Instead of filling up your fenced-in space with an A-frame trellis, train your plants to grow along the wire grids. This is a great way to user pest-repelling plants as a barrier. Because the plants will start to curl through the fencing, most pests won’t want to come inside.
