Super Easy Fencing Solutions
Do you have a prickly predicament in your front or back yard? We do– our a Monkey Puzzle Tree. It’s quite lovely and healthy. There’s only one issue… it’s also very spiky.
Three or four times a week, one of my kids (or one of their friends) walks, runs or rides their bike into this tree and hurts themselves! That’s why I am so excited about Connections Decorative Fencing, available at Lowe’s. Connections™ is a fabulous to use short term or long term. It’s also flexible, affordable and low-maintenance.
It’s easy to customize Connections™ to meet your needs. There are many different height options: Use one panel with 1-tier posts, or stack two panels with 2-tier posts or use three panels with 3-tier posts. One item of note: you always need one more post than panels to finish your design.
There’s no digging, hardware, glue or concrete footers needed! It’s a cinch to install with materials that you can find at Lowe’s and you can reconfigure it as your needs change.
Here’s what the space looked like before. I wanted to use Connections™ to create an attractive barrier to that Monkey Puzzle Tree.
I decided to use 1 panel with 1-tier posts design. It’s super easy to install.
Next, slide the posts over the stakes. Then you slide the spacers (also included in the posts kits) into the sides of the posts that where you will putting the panel insert.
Finally you slide the panel insert into the posts.
Then add the post caps. Easy peasy.
Now the Monkey Puzzle Tree is safely standing behind Connections™ fencing. There are so many other uses as well.
Ways to use Connections™
1. Privacy: Get added privacy around patios, decks or hot tubs. Also great for blocking the view from neighbors.
2. Conceal: Hide those things you don’t want others to see like kid’s toys, wood piles… even compost!
3. Decorative Accents: Add some decorative edging around a patio, mailbox or walkway.
4. Protection: Great for keeping kids out of prickly trees, bushes and protecting new plants and flowers.
It’s also a great way to give your yard a new look!
