    I like that! You can also use the heavy duty double stick outdoor velcro so you can go in and out of the bed to attend to your crops! I also added tulle to the top to keep the birds out! I used the metal posts with the hooks and some tenax netting as well. form home depot

    Thank you for sharing your video. I had used my old โ€˜snow fenceโ€™ to surround my entire garden of raised beds. I never saw anyone do that before until now. I guess great minds think alike. ๐Ÿ™‚. I live in the country. That plastic fence has kept the deer, ground hogs, opossums, raccoons, rabbits, wild turkeys, dogs, and even cats out.
    The first year for a single raised bed we used steel fence posts to attach my snow fence to with plastic wire ties. We had extra fence posts doing nothing with. I left a walkway around all sides and put commercial garden fabric down and 12โ€ square pavers. We let the snow fence overlap by about 18 inches. We then used a fiberglass driveway marker stick weaved into the open spaces of the snow fence and inserted it into the ground. This became my โ€˜doorโ€™.
    The following year we made a second garden area that could hold four 8โ€™x4โ€™ raised garden beds (as planned), or two longer beds (19 feet). We used left over materials to make this second garden area. We have a 3โ€™ walkway all around the garden. We have a 4โ€™ center walkway. Still had material left over from our snow fence. Used that to make the fence. We also had old steel fence posts, treated wood fence posts, and 3 small pasture gates (4 feet). We used the wooden posts to secure the gates; plus also used them in each corner and some on each side. We have 2 gates for the larger garden – one on each end of the 4โ€™ walkway; and we put a gate in the first garden. I love these gates. All materials we used were left over from our daughterโ€™s horse pasture.

    We have one long raised garden bed on one side in the second garden area. On the other side we made the raised bed a little shorter and added an old horse trough to that side. My garden is rustic but charming.
    If we had to go and buy them new today they are considered reasonably priced.
    I, too, went to a fabric store and bought tulle to cover my plants. Cheap.
    I love gardening and learning from and what others are doing. Happy Gardening! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ

    Love you garden series! Thank you for sharing!
    Would you consider doing a tour of your bar area in your home? And discuss/make a few of your favorite drinks?

    ๐Ÿฆ๐ŸฆBirds are my issue ๐Ÿ˜’
    They ate my first ripe tomatoes ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ
    I just wrapped my area with bird netting, which is a mess dealing with!

    I Didnโ€™t notice or maybe I missed it – -did you leave an opening in the raised beds for you to get in/out when you need to !! Your garden is looking good !! Iโ€™m working on line waiting on the weather to warm up around here !! Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ‘

  8. iluvtheband on April 5, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Great video! Will you write in the description the items you used!!

  9. BZee on April 5, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Thank you Darius for the raised bed idea. I got mine started on Saturday, Iโ€™m so excited!

  10. Tova H on April 5, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    So how do you get into the bed to work it.

  11. Tina Gilmore on April 5, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Looks great but how are you going to be able to access your harvest?

  12. Queen Lorea on April 5, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Your garden is looking great; everything is growing on point. Thanks for sharing CBโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

  13. Camille Brown on April 5, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    How do you keep squirrels out. They have been my issue for the past 3 years. Iโ€™ve tried everything and they still get to my tomatoes.

  14. Ginger Holland on April 5, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    I enjoy your video but the background music is too loud and distracting. You have great content and I’d love to be able to hear you!

  15. Gicanda Thomas on April 5, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Love what your’re doing. Very innovative. Hope everything works out. Make sure you have some kind of "door action going on" so that getting to your protected gardens and planting is not a hassle. Good show.

  16. Monisa Taylor on April 5, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Hello Darius
    Do you have a video on how you built your raised beds? I love the idea of how you’re keeping the rabbits out, that is my only hiccup to starting my garden. Last year I started growing watermelon and the rabbits ate everything. By the way, beautiful garden!!

  17. Grinning In Their Face on April 5, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Right on man, good luck! Thank you for the tips!
    Looking great!
    Wouldnt happen to have any tips on how to fight modified weather…or that the sun is atleast 30 degrees hotter on a clear (non-spray day) than we are told, lol.
    ALl my thermometers do not lie…even at 50 degrees the sun is brutal in Indiana.
    Plus, what if your faucet and hose water come out as high as 880PPM, with a PH of eight!
    I have pea, lettuce, and cool weather crops in containers because they CANNOT take direct sun for extended periods.

    They have definitely been hardened off…50 degrees and sun here in Indiana, will droop your lettuce in about twenty minutes!
    Thermometer, and our phones say fifty degrees…six different thermometers, mercury, and digital, in my sprayed down cool wet grass in sun says it is almost ninety!
    Wait till summer…ninety degree means the sun has killed my digital thermometers., and buried the mercury ones.
    Over 120 plus.
    My phone says 69 degree right now…the vintage mercury thermometer i place on the rim of an empty wet planter says…ninety-four!!!
    Ive done this experiment for friends and family numerous times, with the temperature, and their hose water.
    Rain water PPM has went up drastically as well man.
    Ive tested it as high as eighty-four, and a PH of almost 8 as well….used to be 1 or 2 PPM , PH of seven.
    They changed some things, and now their gardens do much better!
    Dont get me started on our soil…and the garbage in there.
    Be safe Man, happy gardening!

    Hi Darius, you have inspired me so much, what do you spray on your garden to keep the bugs away ( Organic )????

  19. R Oki on April 5, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    What brand of green house is that if you don’t mind! I like it and I am looking for a good one

  20. R Oki on April 5, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    You can rub your finger across the pollen and pollinate it your self!

  21. Susan Williams on April 5, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Good morning

  22. Miss Michelle on April 5, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    I know this is a silly question D, I’m totally clueless. But, how do you get in and out of the barrier when you want to harvest your veggies?

  23. Tai Lilly on April 5, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Hello. New subscriber here. Doing a marathon to catch up on your videos.

  24. Janette Lavender on April 5, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Large binder clips (yes office binder clips) will work on your rebar to attach the fencing and then you donโ€™t have to pull staples! The binder clips are so tough. I use them, hair clips and even clothesline pins for mesh and plastic fencing ๐Ÿ˜‰ cheap and easy. You can find bags of them at thrift stores too.

  25. Seven Zen Hair on April 5, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Very well done. When I move I will be doing this.

  26. Rose Budzz on April 5, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Great idea Darius. My mom used chicken wire around her garden and it helped. I need something for my strawberries. Any ideas?

  27. Michelle on April 5, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Hey Darius, garden looks great. TIP. You can weave the netting onto the stakes or rebar.

  28. lashun harris on April 5, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Where’s the link for the fencing?

  29. Devyn Gordon on April 5, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Did you say you got the netting from Amazon or Lowes?

  30. ebgbjo2025 on April 5, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Castle bricks??! Genius! Wish I would have found this sooner but stumbled upon this on looking for ideas to keep my dog out of my beds. Chains around several times not working.

    How about getting in and out easily to tend to what you are growing?

  31. Camille Brown on April 5, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    How do you keep squirrels out. They have been my issue for the past 3 years. Iโ€™ve tried everything and they still get to my tomatoes.

  32. Sharon Johnson on April 5, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    I had a Meyer lemon tree for 6 years… I am in zone 7, so my tree was in a pot. I got lemons every year either in December or March. I would put the pot outside in April and bring inside in October. Fresh lemons was amazing.

  33. Wendy King on April 5, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    You have inspired me and my granddaughter to start a garden. Can’t wait to send you some pictures ๐Ÿ˜

  34. Deneisha Barr on April 5, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Question how are you going to get your crops once they’re ready to eat ? Seems like it’d be hard to get to them with the fencing all around the bed.

    On another note… I like how you built the beds with the bricks also what are those blue dots in your soil?

  35. Uneek aka Quadesha on April 5, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    It is going be beautiful you make wanna move somewhere I can make me a garden. I love your garden ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  36. Mama Nelly on April 5, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    I ordered an owl,gonna see if it scares off anything, lol

  37. L Smith on April 5, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Would this work for keeping groundhogs out of your garden as well?

  38. GRTV on April 5, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Your garden looks really good well done to you.

  39. Katie Spina on April 5, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    That’s a really great use of your existing corner bricks. This is helping me figure out the best way to build my modular fence on my existing beds.

  40. soulead50 on April 5, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Wow amazing. one of these days I’m going to try this.

  41. Susan Hatcher on April 5, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    This is all awesome. Canโ€™t wait to follow the growth happening. Maybe you can set up a little produce stand out in your front yard. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚I told you to get some rabbit traps and then you can cook some rabbit stew. Bet your grandma cooked some back in the day. Have a good day.
