I NEED your help here!? Regarding garden fence ideas............
Well......I got my new garden fence put in, spent and pretty penny , thought I knew what I was doing, went to Home Depot and the guy there tells me I needed pressure treated wood (gothic pickets), so....believing him I bought all this wood. Had someone build it around my vegetable garden.

It is up and looks great, really! BUT........I found out that the chemicals in this wood leach into food, and you are not to even handle this wood with your bare hands. I can't believe Home Depot told me this is fine!

So, now I am having it torn down....courtesy of Home Depot (thank you Home Depot), and now I am at square one again!

What type of garden fence is easy ( for a little girl such as myself) to put up and will keep pest and a big german shep out of it????

HELP??? Thank you for your help, I really need it!

I don't fence in my garden, I let the rabbits hop on in and my son hunts them with his bow...fresh rabbit and veggies...

If you want to keep the rabbits out without building a fence just go to the local barber shop and get a bag of hair clippings...the human scent keeps the critters away...you can also pee in a jar and pour it around the garden too...

I use the metal stakes and the metal fencing. I picked it up at Lowes and the total was under $50. I need it to keep my dog out as he loves melons and cukes.

Get you some T-Posts and a post pounder and some wire...
Run a string line, pound the posts in about every 5' and then wire the wire up...

Home Depot told you to use chemically treated wood because the dirt rots wood... Your wood fence wouldn't have lasted long without the treatment.

If you keep a buffer zone away from your food plants - like, put 2' of flowers between the fence and your garden veggies, I would think you would have been fine. Tearing it out makes little to no sense to me. I have a wooden fence around mine (chemically treated lumber) and I'm alive and kicking -

I think you are overreacting. Use the wood. The amount of any toxic leaching will be minimal and very unlikely that plants will uptake them.

My tomatoes do better when they are planted next to the creosote railroad ties border.

Well, if there weren't any to begin with, there soon would be if she took to peeing in a jar and pouring it round the garden.

If it is your German Shepard just rain him not to enter the garden.

I have big boxers and they stay out of my very large 2 gardens and know they cannot use the bathroom near it.

A chain link fence would be your best bet, but metal posts and either chicken wire or cattle fencing wire would work well too, and would be less expensive.

Go to a farm supply store instead of home depot. ;)
