Entry and Exit


Fences make good neighbors, as the saying goes.  Some neighbors, namely, backyard critters don’t feel that way.  Fences are just an obstacle to chew through or dig under.  This is the fence on the left side of the house.

Every rabbit, raccoon, armadillo, turtle, squirrel, cat and dog know exactly where the holes are.  There are exits at each end of the back fence.


Yes, the holes have been filled in or blocked off.  A new one is just dug again by one animal or other.  This hole is the way to the front yard.


The time came for a new fence.  The fence guy said, don’t worry about the critters chewing the fence or digging holes any more.  As you can see, the fence is way above the ground.  I guess there will be no need for digging.


Anyway, the new cedar fence makes a nice backdrop for the garden.

  1. New fence looks great. Years ago, my husband built a fence and left cat spaces in the corners. The spaces were well used. Believe it or not I have Yellow Butterfly Gingers and have a hard time getting them going. Think they need to be moved.

    Good for you and your fence guy to augment the fence so that the critters have some free access.

    The new fence looks wonderful. I never would have thought of it, but it makes sense to just let the little critters have free access.
