This will be my first time gardening this year.
I was initially thinking of putting a 3-5' high fence around my entire SFG garden. I really didn't want to because we have a suburban backyard and a 3x8' garden would require at least a 9x10' fence to leave room for aisles. More fence, less garden. Deer aren't really an issue.There may be the random deer but we didn't see any all summer..we've only seen them late fall/winter so i'm not too concerned. Rabbits are the biggest issue and there are also tons of squirrels around but rabbits are #1 issue I would think.
Anyways, I saw someone post this fence and I was thinking this would be perfect. It would do the job and not add this huge fence in my backyard.
Anyone have an feedback on
* Would the fencing block out too much light with it being right on top of the beds? This is really the #1 issue I was looking for feedback on.
* How high i should make this go above my beds?
* What type of fencing would be best?
Also..I'm not sure of the proper term for this. But I was thinking if I went this route of fastening a T like peice of wood on each section. Then on my beds another piece that T would fit into so that I could easily slide it on/off.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? If it would work, where to get the parts to make this?
