What Garden Fencing Is Best to Protect Your Garden?

If your aim is to mark the boundaries of your garden, you may use any garden fences. If other qualities are also important to you, let’s discuss garden fencing ideas. Wooden garden fencing is the most harmonious and natural for the garden. It may be called traditional or classical garden edging fence, but wood needs some care. There are people who do that with pleasure, it’s their option then. If you prefer strength, then choose metal garden fencing. It’s difficult to break or at least bend metal, it can withstand any weather conditions and temperature. If you have enough money to buy an expensive decorative garden fencing, then we recommend wrought iron garden fence with very beautiful pictures and traceries. Purchasing a plastic garden fence is also a good idea. This is the most modern type of garden fencing and there are many of its varieties and forms. This may be garden fencing panels or, for example, a green netting. Now modern technologies allow using the blend of wood and plastic for the manufacture of garden fences; the wire in a pvc garden fencing has a PVC coating etc.
If you want to close some parts of your garden where there are, for example, garbage cans and the like, you can use a willow garden fencing, reinforced with galvanized wire.
Of course, a vinyl garden fence is more durable than any of the varieties of wooden garden fences, but you can “revive” vinyl, having planted climbing plants along the fence.
With the help of garden fencing, you’ll protect your garden against strangers, wild animals etc. But even the most modern and high garden fence won’t protect your crop against birds. Some species of birds (starlings, blackbirds, jackdaws, crows) can significantly reduce the crop of strawberries, cherries, apples. Here are the ways of protection about which we were told by gardeners: an effective scarecrow for the birds is mirrored Christmas toys (balls, beads, garlands made of glass and foil). Toys may be hung separately on brightly colored pickets or attached to the trees. Particularly good results are obtained in a sunny and slightly windy weather.
Another tip (in our opinion, the best, since the glass yet is potentially dangerous): having noticed that birds don’t perch on the tree under which a cat is resting, one gardener collected all old fur and plush toys in the attic and placed them on the trees. The main thing is that beasties have eyes and if some don’t, you have to sew big shiny buttons. The effect is stunning!
