As well it would be nice if the fence could slow down escaping goats. I live on a island zone 7-8 pacific northwest with no large predators and lots of deer. Thinking of planting a combination of thorny honey locust, black lucust, hawthorne, osage orange, sea buckthorn, russian olive, blackberry, raspberry, salmonberry, siberian pea shrub, try to grow honey pod mesquite in one spot, along with a under planting of stinging nettle, comfry, yarrow other supporting herbaceous plants. Does anyone know of other plants that could be used or if any of the plants I listed won't work ? Willow and hazelnut won't work because the deer love it to much.
