UPDATE: 22 June 2008 I have added the most recent photos of the garden the plants have filled out and provided the first bumper crop. The fence has effectively worked and kept the dogs out. Although one did a couple swipe at the garden but failed. Enjoy the photos below.
Here you will find my Instructable The Doggy Garden Fence. This fence cost me around $7 out of new materails, a small price when growing organic food. Take a look and if you enjoy it please give me a plus.
If you have seen my other Instructables then you may have looked at my Raised Tomato Garden. It came out pretty nice, but my dogs kept getting into it and digging it apart. I tried different fencing ideas but never had the time to build complete a nice fenced area.
So here it is. I hope you enjoy this Instructable, learn something from it, add suggestions to it, or at the least will generate some other ideas of your own because of it.
Read on and enjoy.
F.Y.I - This Instructable goes along with another one of my instructables The Doggy Retreat you will see it in the corner of the final step photos.
I created the picture below with Google's Sketchup software.
