Q+A: Carport Frame
For keeping large birds, s
quirrels, deer and raccoons out of a garden, nothing beats a carport frame covered with heavy plastic fencing.
My frame is black and the fencing is green.
Black fencing would blend in even better, but the green is not bad. Use plastic electrical wire ties to attach fencing to the frame.
If you have ground hogs or rabbits add 18" of chicken wire up the sides and 18" more staked into the ground to keep them from digging under or chewing through the plastic fence.
