We have a dog park in our back yard, built by previous owner. Although we are dog owners, our dogs are small, inside dogs and have no interest in this enclosure. We have tried, but after five minutes of being in the dog park, they stood by the gate and cried.
What to do with it? Getting rid of the chain link fence seems like a lot of hard work for just one person. Besides, fences are expensive to install.
Instead, I decided to make this area a garden where I’ll grow fruits and vegetables. Since our yard gets pretty much daily visits from deer (this is where they come from), this fence comes in really handy.
This tiny garden bed is just the beginning. They’ll be many more. Or I may even rent a tiller to loosen the soil in this area.
Chain link fences are not my favorite so I have searched for affordable makeovers. After perusing Pinterest and Youtube, I am pretty sure about the direction I’m heading with my chain link fence.
I really like this idea. Just a few wood boards make all the difference.
I happen to have a big pile of old fence wood in my back yard. These boards would be perfect for covering up the metal poles. Great way to reuse old wood and save money.
Another thing I’d like to change is the color.
Black is a much better option.
This video shows an affordable and easy chain link fence makeover. The guy did it for under $50. I love the end result.
So this is my plan for this fence. I’d love to know what you think.
