Where we planted our fruit plants on the border of our plot with someone elses, I had put some wooden stakes in to make a sort of division between our plots. However, I wanted to also ensure that the plants wouldn’t grow over into their plot too.
Dad had some wooden pallets from a job that he was working on – they’d been used to deliver the slabs and bricks he was using to work on someones front drive. They were going to be thrown away, so we decided to recycle them.
Sawing them in half gives you a great fence that you can use with wooden stakes. Hold the wooden pallet in the ground, then drive stakes in the middle of them to hold them nice and firmly in place. This fence aligned up nicely with our second compost heap too.
With the spare wood from the pallets, we drove these into our compost heap so that there were no gaps for our dirt and grass to fall out of into our neighbours plot.
