4 to 6 feet high or higher
Have a 1 acre property, how about earth bag? Also trying to keep the chickens and dogs in, looking for alternatives to metal wire fencing...
Anyone have an experience with earth bag and have tips, thanks, what is the best finishing method? Living in climate zone 5B Ontario Canada (this doesnt consider climate change)
I thought hugle-culture, but its too wide and the chickens will clime it.
kombucha cheers

There are some projects here which may spark your creative juices. The sunflower river wall is lovely.

Blessings,

Max

living hedge is the ideal option.

an acre lined wall of earth bags seems like a lot of work.

Organdy, what I'm about to share all depends upon Time Place and Circumstance.

Paul has posted a video about fencing made with pallets. Free pallets to build a fence would be a dream come true for some folks.

They may or may not be your thing, or that of your neighbors--Visually and such.

Even if you can't use them for your entire place, maybe you can use some to make smaller fenced in areas for animals or whatever you can dream of.

Blessings,
Max

This is the "fence" surrounding a house storage yard. There has been theft in the past. We have a good gate but it is still the weakest link. 14 ft tall himilaya berries 20 ft across is a very prickly deterrent.
