Deer-Proof Garden Fence Ideas

To keep out high-jumping deer, many gardeners surround their crops with tall fences that have the look of a maximum-security prison. That's not the case in this enclosed garden in rural Redmond, Washington ― it's surrounded by a graceful fence built by Harry Beal of Castle-n-Grounds, based in Duval, Washington. The design of the 10-foot-tall fence is adapted from a pattern the owner saw in a past issue of Sunset.

Along the bottom of the fence, closely spaced pickets keep out small animals. What would be the #1 thing on you list if you win the lottery?

This house is #1 on my list! I love every inch of it!

Les Mable's raised beds with bench seats from new railway sleepers

I bought a nice fibreglass pond going cheap, and therefore needed to dig out about 4 cubic metres of soil from the garden. At the same time, my wife wanted a large raised bed for plants, and so this was designed to accommodate the soil removed for the pond. To make life interesting (i.e. more complicated!) The design also incorporates two bench seats about 1 metre wide. Overall length of the bed is 6.4 metres, the short length is 2.5 metres, and the internal width is 0.8 metres. The project used: 10 fence posts, 75mm x 75mm x 1.8m (halved and used to form corners and vertical supports), 20 railway sleepers 95mm x 190mm x 1.8m, 22 railway sleepers 95mm x 190mm x 2.4m, Over 300 railway sleeper screws, most of which are hidden from sight, 3 lengths of decking (2.4m) for the seats and arm-rests.

Thanks again for the inspiration. Les Mable Godmanchester, near Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire. Now that summer is here, the weather is nice and Stella is home from school we are spending so much time outside in the yard.

We have entertained out there quite a bit as well. We have French doors in our dining room that open up to the outside patio, and on a warm summer evening it’s so fun to open up all the doors and have the breeze come in. I can’t wait to finish landscaping our yard! We haven't planted very many plants at this point and we have allot of work to do. Things are slowly coming together and we are enjoying the process. I always wanted to have that Martha'sVinyard /English Garden feel to our yard. These photo's sum it up for me Planting a garden is definitely on my summer to do list! Have a Beautiful Day! Xoxo CC. I'm dreaming of... raised beds, arranged with a plan in mind, in an enclosed area to keep out deer - and it should be pretty. I can't remember my source for this picture, but I'll keep looking I'm dreaming of... a garden the deer can't get to. Here's an interesting idea from The Tucson Gardener.
