Cheap fencing solution ideas
Our whole yard is currently enclosed in a vinyl fence. However I still need to close off a few areas because we have dogs and I would prefer that they can't go behind the garage where I can't see them and I also need to close off my garden.
I bought some cheap stakes and plastic netting as a solution for enclosing my garden but they have still been able to go under the netting since it is only attached to the stakes.
I found these instructions on how to create a sturdy fence out of landscape timbers. And landscape timbers would be a very cost effective solution but everything I'm reading online says that they are not rated for in-ground contact. Sounds like they don't even hold up very well as edging for garden beds etc...
If I coated the part that I plan on burying in the ground with one or two coats of roofing tar, do you think that would hold up for a decent period of time.
