Taking Out the Old Garden Fence

Now that spring is here, it's time to begin preparing for planting season.  The first step is to replace the garden's old chicken wire fence, which was in bad shape when I moved in.  Before I can install a new fence - which I plan to do this weekend - I had to take down the old fence.  First came the posts, then I ripped out the fencing.  In addition to the metal chicken wire, there was a netting that I had to pull out of the ground.  Now, the garden looks strangely naked, and the old fence is piled into a big ball.

  1. Turns out the garden is the perfect place for that. So, between plants being trampled and accidentally dug up the garden is suffering. fences quotes
