Step 1

bamboo stakes pushed into ground

Place Bamboo Stakes

Push the bamboo stakes into the ground at one-foot spacing until they're sturdy in place. Hammer the stakes into the ground along the edge of the bed.

Step 2

second row of string completes fence

Attach Twine to Bamboo

Wrap the twine around each stake a few times. Then go straight across to the next stake, repeating the step until all of the stakes are tied together. Complete the fence by adding a second row of string and tying it off.

Step 3

dangle old CDs from string to deter birds

Attach CDs With Twine

Dangle some CDs from twine and tie them to the top twine on the fence. This will help keep birds like starlings away and make the fence more noticeable to kids who might forget the garden is here.
