More residents are turning to home gardening. Growing your own non-GMO vegetables is a lot more economical than purchasing organic produce in the stores. Of course, a garden full of delicious vegetables is also an invitation for unwanted wildlife. One way to address this issue is by erecting a garden fence.
Why a Garden Fence?
As suggested in its name, a garden fence encompasses a garden. If you have an existing fence around your property, then a garden fence is essentially a smaller fence system within the larger border fence. This not only makes for a more organized and attractive garden, but also protects your crops from small animals like rodents, rabbits and raccoons, all of which are prevalent in the Snohomish area.
The Best Type of Garden Fence
A garden fence should be treated just like a property fence. In other words, you need to give just as much attention to the quality of the material and how it is installed. With that in mind, we recommend white cedar. This is a durable wood that doesn’t warp or twist like treated wood. When unstained, it eventually fades to a silver grayish color, which gives it a nice rustic appearance. This is a definite plus if you’re shooting for a cottage or old-style look.
In addition, the fiber cells of white cedar absorb very little moisture. This makes it more rot resistant, giving it a lifespan of 20 to 30 years.
