I'm looking for something to divide a small yard such as a hedge or tall grass maybe. I originally wanted something that I could step over, but I realize now that itâ€™s going to have to be 2 to 3 ft high to discourage my dogs from defecating in my little drought damaged lawn. The lawn is struggling as it is with the water rationing and the dogs arenâ€™t helping.
I'm not watering the other side of the yard at all and it is almost gone with only patches of grass hanging on. I just wish the dogs would use that side of the yard for their business. I have a small 1ft high border fence to divide the yard now, but it makes the dogs more determined to do all their business in the grass part. They are not jumpers and I think 2 to 3 ft would be enough to discourage them.
I installed a 3 ft high wrought iron fence years ago to keep the dogs out of my pond and it worked, but I just couldnâ€™t stand the closed in feeling of a fence because it really made my yard look small and I took it down. I still have the fence and may have to put it up again if I canâ€™t com up with something to stop the dogs.
I'm going to leave the short border fence in place so the dogs don't go under whatever I grow. And also whatever I plant has to be drought tolerant.
