Critters In The Garden

If you have critters in your garden, check this out.

I love seeing all the wild life roaming around my yard. But when it comes to my gardens, I want my hard work left for my enjoyment.

Trying to keep critters out of your gardens and from eating all your vegetables or flowers can be a hard task.

Using traps and chemicals can be dangerous to both humans and pets and can harm the environment as well.

Holly Mann designed and built some great cages for her raised bed gardens to protect her plants from these critters.

It didn’t cost a fortune or take weeks to build.

She used some 1×2 lumber, screws, some screening and staples to make her cages. Added a few hinges so they are easy to open.

 

You can see here fully instructions on how she build these here!

We would love to see your projects, Just drop us a comment and let us know what you have done.

Making a Raised Bed Garden
