Step 1: The Problem
The problem is the dogs don't understand the rules of the garden!
do not walking on the plants,
no peeing on the flowers,
do not eat the green beans off the plant!
no wrestling in the strawberries,
don't eat the compost!
only people can dig in the garden,etc
So we made the decision to fence in the garden and make a gate using reclaimed wood/materials.
Step 2: Collecting the Materials
Some old post, heavy duty skid, left over nails, a small piece of fencing and a few other odd pieces of wood from other projects.
*We had also considered the idea of using natural branches to build our gate (pinterest has tons of great ideas and pictures).
Step 3: Building the Gate
Next, we measure the distance between post and height for the gate size.We decide just to use the piece of wood railing that we had. We took out all the old nails and shorted the end.
Last he, reinforced the ends and
added the hinges & lock.
*Future Project....I would like to add lights to the post....
Step 4: Garden 2015
This is also ideal for when I have my chickens in the garden, the fence will make it easier to contain them.
