|Say 'hello' to my little friend..|
The sensible thing would have been to turn the hose off after I watered the newly seeded beds, so that I could hook up and test the scarecrow without risk of a faceful of water. Yet, since the tap was 30 feet away, I decided to take my chances with just kinking the hose. Mistake. Again, two facefuls of water.
The new fence is now a 9 foot barrier in most sections. In previous years, we had a 7 foot fence, that the deer would typically jump that at least a handful of times in the summer. Hopefully the taller height will take care of that.. I will snap some photos today to post, but we just used 4 x 4 inch 10-foot lengths of untreated wood that support the deer netting. I'd love to go with a more sturdy fence, but cost and appearance hold me back. We'll give this another go and see how effective it is.. fingers crossed!!
