I started working on the garden fence and I’m so excited about this project.
This is going to be perfect for keeping the dogs out and the sheep for when I let them free range the yard.
This will be a two part project beginning with how to build these fence wall which are a very basic design using wood and wire we already had.
I started with 2 x 4’s to build one fence wall. We’re working with a 3 ft tall structure which allowed me to use two 8 ft. boards for cutting and another two for the width.
All the boards were cut using a table saw and if you want your fence taller well that’s easy enough to make happen.
Once the boards are cut, gather a drill because we’ll be connecting everything shortly.
I was building two walls so I have six boards laid out ready to drill pilot holes. Two holes on each end is perfect and pilot holes keep wood from splitting when you drill the screws in place.
I always use screws because over time nails will become loose.
Drill the corners first so the wire is between the wood.
This step will help hold everything in place and it’s a lot easier if you have help. Make sure to add all three boards, two at the ends and one in the center.
Hammer the wire using galvanized staple nails, these can be purchased at any hardware or farm store and all you do is hammer them over the wire to connect to the wood.
Cut off any excess wire and keep building fence walls until you have the amount needed for your fence project.
I built six fence walls to close off the garden and made a gate using the same technique.
I even decided to leave the wood natural because I want a weathered finish. For the The Fence Install click right here.
