“Make a self-supporting post-less fence trellis out of rebar!”
In Spring 2011 I wanted to make a fence across the backyard for three reasons; to enclose a chicken run, to grow fruit vines, and to support a future pvc arbour I had planned. Traditional fencing options were expensive, but I found a way to do it using only rebar steel mesh. The result exceeded my hopes.
- Creates Vertical Space
- Encloses Chickens
- Supports Vines
- Lasts 10 Years
“Make your soil as healthy as a forest floor, by mulching!”
Mulching is the covering of soil with organic material. It is much the same as what naturally occurs in a forest when leaves fall to the floor. Mulch suppresses weeds and prevents evaporation, which allows the topsoil to remain moist so that earthworms and other creatures can live there.
- Saves water
- Builds soil life
- Suppresses weeds
- Becomes fertiliser
