Part 2 – Garden Fence Install

Here we are at Part two of the fence project.  I’m super excited because it’s finally time to install all these fence panels.

There’s total of 6 plus two gates and several posts to make up my garden fence.

 I thought installing the fence would be the hard part because I decided to do my digging by shovel.

We had a little rain so the ground was moist enough to make things pretty smooth.

Begin with a little digging

Once I had the holes marked I began digging in a straight line using string and stakes to identify my plan.

The posts are going straight into the holes without any cement holding them in place.  This means we went a little over 2 feet underground.

Post Install comes next

I dropped six foot landscaping timbers into these holes and secured with dirt.

Once all the posts were in the ground it was time to attach the walls.

This part was a breeze; the walls were connected using a drill and screws and it didn’t take long before I was finished in part of an afternoon.

I placed these chicken lights each corner of the entrance and because I ran out of steam it seemed like tomorrow would be a good day to add the gates.

I believe this will help keep productivity moving forward without the dogs digging when I’m not looking.

A garden fence is a great way to identify your property and keep things tidy.  Learn how to build these fence panels right here.

    I like the fence…. it is nice to make those changes… 🙂

    1. This has been a huge help to keep the dogs out of my garden. I should have went taller though and perhaps a small opening welded wire and then the chickens would have to think harder on how to get in. -Carole
