Approved BB submission
The Hügelkultur I built recently is located within a pasture my cattle graze, so I am building a fence to keep the cattle off the Hügelkultur. I don't want them eating everything I planted! The only thing I purchased for these braced fence corners was twelve 12" spikes, everything else is reused materials including 4 used spikes, the upright posts, the brace fence wire, and gate hinges was all reused materials from the Remove 100 ft of unwanted fencing BB and the cross horizontal posts, gate, and staples were from the Clean up messes made by prior owners BB. The brace wire twister stiffener is simply a piece of Western Red Cedar tree limb.

Reused fence wire from bone yard for brace wire.


Reused posts from bone yard for corner posts.
