Just when you thought we were done building barricades in our yard, we’re back for more! Our backyard is going to be like Fort Knox when we’re done. First we put up lattice work under our porch, then we built a fence around our garden (here and here), but there was still more to barricade. The last step was to build a removable fence to block off the area next to our shed where we have a compost bin and store scrap wood from all of our projects.
First he sunk two PVC pipes in the ground to make the sleeves -
Then he used 2×2′s to to create a removable barrier that can be slipped in and out of the sleeves whenever we need it.
And with that, our backyard is officially (we think) dog and child proof. Well, minus potted plants Olivia likes to dig through, the bushes Riley likes to sit in, and the any other undiscovered mess that they can get into. But hey, you can’t win them all.
Looking back, our backyard has come a long way since we moved in. One of the first things we did was build a couple raised garden beds and put up a clothes line behind the shed -
Then we had our porch redone and installed a poured concrete patio -
And I’ve already mentioned our lattice work and garden fence -
And here’s where we’re at now!
