TracyWe work really hard setting up our garden every year, and want to get as much out of it as we possibly can. Since we're on the edge of the woods, we have lots of little critters who love our garden as much as we do. We also have chickens that have been very helpful in getting our beds ready for planting, but we don't want them to eat everything we plant. 

After we lost so much to the critter buffet last year, we started researching the best way to prevent it this year. We've seen plastic tunnels, fencing and netting, but nothing that looked like what we needed. The idea of netting made the most sense, but we have a pretty darn big garden, with several raised beds. Charlie designed these awesome garden cages, using PVC, and they work great! They're easy to make, inexpensive, portable, and do what we want them to do.

What you need:

  • PVC – 8 pieces for top and bottom (cut 6 inches longer than sides of bed), 4 pieces for sides

  • 90-degree side outlet elbow

  • Snap clamps (to hold netting to PVC)

  • Garden netting

Most of the supplies can be found at your local hardware store. Snap clamps can be found online, if they aren't available nearby.

Did you use 1" PVC or 1 1/2" PVC pipe?
