Customized Corners Protect Raised Bed from Garden Pests

fence-for-raised-bed-cornersThis idea comes from a gardener in Arlington, VA, who reviewed our Raised Bed Corners (4 stars):

"To prevent rabbits, squirrels, and chipmunks from getting into the bed, I wanted to enclose it with a 2-foot-high fence that would still allow easy access to the plantings. The 2-inch-square holes in the corners (which typically are covered with the provided plastic caps) provided for an easy solution."

"I constructed a fence using 1×2 cedar and 1/2-inch-mesh hardware cloth. As shown in the photos, the vertical boards have 8-inch legs that slip into the square holes, and a simple plastic twist tie holds the sides together, keeping them from flapping in the wind. Any side can be easily pulled out after untwisting two of the ties."

    Thank you for sharing this great design. I have been searching for a way to keep the neighbor hood cats from using my garden as a litter box and still be able to have easy access to work the garden. This looks great and I can throw a messed fabric screen over the top to keep them from jumping in.
    Thank you again.
