Step 1: Horizontal Rows

I started by making horizontal rows of zip ties

When al the rows ware made , i began to close the hole by pulling on the ziptie

Step 2: Vertical Rows

To conect the horizontal rows i put horizontal zipties between the rows

Step 3: Cut of the Ends

Now just grab some wire cutters and snap of all ends of the zipties .

My fince now is solid as a rock and i can let my dog play outside without the fear of him walking away

thanks for watching and please vote for me in the ziptie contest

    Creative idea,but I have 2 criticisms:

    1. You did not mention if the zip ties you used are UV resistant. If they are not, htey will only last a short time.

    2. Please use spell check.

    another idea would be to go to the hardware store and pick up some chicken wire or what have you and use wire to affix it. it is pretty cheap and you won't have to worry about the dog gnawing on the plastic

    yes , but my fence is made out of matal wire withe a plastic coating around it , and he did not gnaw at that so i think it is safe.

    This is incredibly ingenious. I'm about to buy a house with some nasty chain link fencing and will be too broke to fix it immediate. Thanks for the idea
