Re: vegetable garden fence
Some of what I know about deer fencing is in this post from last year on the blog:
In an area as large as 36×32, they may not fall for the low fence — I don’t know. A double (parallel) row of low (4-foot) picket or other fence would work as the article says, and a single might…but not unless the area inside was heavily planted enough (especially just inside the fence) and appeared like something they couldn’t jump into or out of.
Have a read, and see if it helps.
You don’t need pressure-treated; here (Northeast) locust is harvested by local mills and sold for a decent price; I got mine for this other project (below) at Meltz (formerly Tipple, or maybe now all the same thing, I don’t know) in Ghent, NY.
You don’t need it “dressed” (finished nicely) even — so see what they offer or someone like that, with local wood and a sawmill.
