DIY Fence Idea

I was in Williamsburg this past weekend and saw this fantastic little decorative DIY fence.

It's just made from twigs and small branches. It's very cute, and I bet if you made it a little taller, it would keep out rabbits (and Pugs) too.

Here's a little closer view for your inspiration ... The twigs are pressure set - no glue or nails required!

I don't know how many tomato plants they have piled up on each other in this section of the garden, but I would NOT want to be the one going in there to harvest!

Maybe I'll build a scaled-down version of this fence next year to keep the squirrels out of my seed beds!

Innovative method of creating tee-pee trellises from sticks and string.

Their gardens were very tidy. I was surprised that they have so many crops still growing. Mine have all died back for the Winter!

At least their perennials were unruly, just like mine!

Ooh, I like that idea! I've been trying to come up with some clever ways to separate areas in the backyard. May have to give this a try! :)

The twig fencing is great! I have been wanting a custom made fence for around my garden, and I would love something like that. It's very earthy, and it feels like it's the type of fencing that should be around a garden. I can't wait to try to do something like this in my garden.
