I would like to build a fence with latillas, 8-12 ft. I'm wondering what environmental impact is of this practise. I'm in SW US, a mixture of forest and vast sage. The fence type is a coyote fence. I also like the Swedish fence but I don't want to be too destructive.
We do have coyote and dog packs that need slowed down or misdirected by fence.

Hi, Brad   Welcome to permies!

Is this the kind of fence you are talking about?



Here are some threads regarding this kind of fence:

This fence is a little different though the thread might be of value:

If you have ocotillo, this plant is useful for fencing:

I wanted to come back and say thanks for the information. Building the house foundation so I decided to come back to fences later. I like what I saw, it's what I had in mind.
 
What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
