Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate

As I wait ~semi-patiently~ for the arrival of my seed order and warmer weather, I have been searching around for garden fencing ideas. I am expanding the garden this year and I want to create a space that is both functional and appealing.

Here are some ideas so far....

This one is very appealing, but wouldn't do much to keep the rabbits out of my lettuce or the chickens out of my berries.

This one is strong on function, but much like mine is not so very appealing. But do you know what IS appealing in this photo, the health and vigor of those plants! If your garden is producing like this, who cares what the fence looks like!?

This one has both function and a certain appeal... but I think it is not really my style. A bit too confined perhaps.



Hmmmm, what do we have here? This one really speaks to me. I believe the search may be over. What do you think? If you would like to know more about this spectacular garden, you can check it out at this Country Living article~ Connecticut Kitchen Garden

We have two gardens, and we need new fencing for at least one of them this year....I've been thinking about it, too and my favorite is picket fencing, so I think I'm going to watch for that to go on sale. I like to give it a coat of white paint and let it peel....my favorite look of all!

I'm so glad you're back to blogging...I've missed you!

I don't know about the fence(they all look pretty) but those gardens are great! Now I need to plant something quick. This winter is so long.
My greens are up and the onions in the raised beds but I seem to have something nibbling and scratching around in there. Could be those 16 guineas and the barn banties. I may need to look at more fencing too!
Have a great weekend.

It's lovely, but how does it keep rabbits out? (Oh my! You just switched your background before my very eyes. Last night, you could've watched me switch mine dozens of times. Crazy!)

If you look really close, I think the bottom fence has chicken wire held against it, too. It's very pleasing aesthetically, but also keeps out the varmints.

Hi Rhonda!
I haven't seen you in a while. I need to add you to my google reader, so I know when you post.

I love that last picture....We have moved this past fall and I have a back yard full of sun and ready for me to create a veggie garden this spring. I am really looking forward to it!
Hugs,
Penny

Each of those gardens is amazing!

Meggie said...

My question was the same as Vee's...how does it keep out the rabbits? I'm guessing there is wire at least around the bottom sections?? Love the look, Rhonda! Can't wait to see how yours turns out...when spring arrives, of course.

Hi Rhonda,
Beautiful garden! nothing like home grown veggies. I am looking forward to planting tomatoes.
Take care and enjoy your day,
Elizabeth

Oh how I wish I had a piece of land to plant such an amazing garden. Like you, I like the last fence. It has a casual and rustic charm to it.

Have fun!!

They are all nice-but the last one is my favorite too : ) Now if I just had it in my yard!

Hi Rhonda'
OOwee, this is just what I needed to see today as I am so wanting to get in my garden.
I loved all of the gardens you have shown. But if I have to pick a favorite I guess it would be the last one.
Thanks for sharing the link I will check it out.
Enjoy your day,
Sue
