Reuse of old fencing

Reusing old fencing for a grape arbor.

I Found a bunch of old hog panel fencing in the grove and used it for the wild grapes. The grapes were covering the bushes next to them. Previous house owner planted them too close. This spring I trimmed the grapes back. I anchored one side of the panel to ground and bent it over and anchored the other side down with a board pounded in the ground through the panel. Just twine the vines through the panel and they will take over. The grapes love having the extra space to grow up and over.

good use for an old material for sure! Love how the neighbors always seem to plant large plants right near the boarder :)
