Keeping Your Dog Out of Your Garden

A fenced in yard is great for pets, but what about keeping your pets out of areas like a garden? Dogs don't know that you don't want them to trample your begonias or not eat your tomatoes. But there are measures you can take to ensure your garden is safe. During your fall clean up collect as many branches as you can, instead of dropping them off at your recycling center, there is a way they can solve your problem.
Collect branches that are 1-2” in diameter and break off any small twigs. Cut one end of the branch at an angle, this is the end that will go into the ground. Cut the other end straight, the flat surface will provide a better area to strike. Place the stakes less than eight inches apart and this will prevent your dog from entering your garden! If you want extra protection, take thinner branches flexible branches and weave them between the stakes. Don't fret if one goes missing or it starts to decay it's easily fixed. It's a great, cost free solution!
This is often known as a wattle fence, and it has been used for over 6,000 years. It dates back to the Neolithic era where it was commonly used for enclosing ground or handling livestock.
Keeping your dogs out of your garden is important, so is keeping your dog in your yard. A wattle fence wouldn't be your best choice to fence in your whole yard. It would be time consuming and strenuous. Think about NJ fence installation made of wood, chain link, aluminum or vinyl.
