suggestions for short fencing for small area of yard....
Can anybody give me ideas on how to mark-off, or create some type of short "fence", for two small areas of my yard?
I have a small dirt yard and the bulk of it contains potted plants. Against the perimeter of the yard (which is completely surrounded by fence), I have two areas where I planted a few things in the soil. The areas are each about 3Â wide. In front of these areas, I want to put some type of short "fencing"Â.mainly just to serve as clear indicators for when I have parties in my yard, that these are areas NOT to be stepped in (as opposed to other areas of the yard that are covered with English Ivy, which I have no problem with people stepping in).
I want something that looks "natural"...not too formalÂeither a wire fencing in GREEN, or else a wood/bamboo type fencing, or maybe even a border of some good sized rocks (which would be difficult for me to do since I donÂt have a car). I searched online, and while I did see a few examples of green wire fencing, or wooden fencing, the lengths of the fencing were all too long and IÂm not handy enough or have all kinds of tools, that I could cut the lengths to size.
I also thought that maybe I could "make" a fence, using just some sticks, and perhaps criss-crossing them at an angle, and then tying them with natural twineÂbut then I wasnÂt sure how IÂd stake them if the sticks are crossed at an angleÂ. ? Ah! ÂI just realized..maybe I could use some of those wooden supports like you use for tomatoes or other tall plantsÂ.break them into shorter piecesÂcreate some type of a horizontal fencing pattern using two sticks that I tie together, and then use another stick laid VERTICALLY say every 12", which I then tie to the horizontal fencing pattern, and then I have my "stakes".Âmaybe that could work?
So, does anyone have ideas for how I can create "natural" looking fencing or borders for areas that are only 3Â wide?
