Something I thought of that I need to do, some protection from animals that might want to come through the fence pickets (ones that would fit of course).
|Garden area fencing|
So do you all have some good ideas for screening this? Our thought was to put some screening of some sort, like chicken wire, along the the bottom 1/3 or so of the fence. At first, I was thinking of just stapling them onto the outside of the fence and onto the pickets. BUT, we're not sure we want it on the outside of the fence, just in case we want to paint or stain the pickets later. Plus it would just 'look' better if it was on the inside of the fence instead of the outside.
Then I realized, looking back at pictures of the fencing, that the inside will be a bit more difficult to attach to. I suppose I could just take a narrow strip and dig it into the ground a bit and then staple to the bottom rail and the onto each post and just leave it as high as the bottom rail (bottom red line)? Or should I just go higher and staple it to each post and go up 2 feet or so (top red line)?
Any other suggestions on what to use? Something other than chicken wire? This might be part of the weekend work, depending on weather (as usual).
