Portable fencing for uncertain garden layout?

carol6ma_7ari(zones 6 & 7a)March 1, 2013

Is there such a thing as portable wood fence sections, about 2-3 ft. high, that I can put together in various configurations on a broad open area, to form a garden area? I'm not sure yet exactly what shape the enclosure should take permanently, and meanwhile I'd like to feel the sense of fenced-area while I enjoy the space. Right now it is slightly sloping downhill toward wetlands, with a small ocean view beyond. I want to grow more vegs within this space, and perhaps get some flowering shrubs around the edges for more privacy. But with the understanding that I could change the outlines next year. The space right now is about 50' x 80' of old pasture grass, but I want to enclose only about 25' x 40' of it. Maybe chairs and a table in the center, and using mulch or bark nuggets underfoot, not patio stones, for easier changes. Winds can be gusty this close to the coast, so it has to be reasonably sturdy. I tried a google search for "portable wood fences" but nothing suitable came up.

Any suggestions?

Search for 2 foot wood fence panels.

If you want less expensive panels you can make your own with lattice and cedar pre-routed trim around the edges. (Cut a 4' x 8' cedar panel in half making two 2' x 8' sections.) I have done this to keep the neighbor children from trampling everything in the yard and directing them to pathways.
