Multi-use, adaptable fencing, garden bed protector, and tunnel framework.
Maybe not new, but I have never seen it used in this fashion so I thought I would pass it along.
Probably 15 years ago we had a dog who insisted on roaming off our property and had a bad fascination for our neighbors cattle. Hence we bought several rolls of galvanized, hinged-joint fencing to give him a good play area but keep him home.
Quick side story, after putting up the fence, I finished the gate area and about to close it up when the darn dog ran away. He must have known all along what the fence was for and made his escape just as it was finished. Smart bugger.
So, the fence was not needed and over a year's time I took it all back down and left rolls of it laying on the fringes of our trees line. As I ran out of concrete reinforcement wire for our tomato cages, I started using this other wire.
It was not as rigid because of the hinged method by which it was constructed but it worked, so slowly I started using it. A few years ago I cut a length of it to trellis beans, peas and squash.
I just took a length of it down to move garden beds and had it laying in the grass when I planted those eggplants that needed covering. I got the idea to bend it lengthwise to form a "tent" and found out it is excellent for that purpose.
The hinged construction allows me to make a continuous, self supporting tunnel in several configurations that can make it taller, wider or shorter as I have the need. GREAT!
It keeps our dogs from digging, then raises up to provide a protection from insects or shade (using cloth), or can stand on its' side to become a trellis again. I am going to retrieve those other rolls and give it more respect.
