Where is your favorite place to find fun new little weekend projects you can tackle? I love checking out Pinterest to see what folks are tinkering with on the weekend. In this post I share a DIY Weekend Warrior : Picket Fence Project that is super easy!
DIY Weekend Warrior : Picket Fence Project
I’ve always wanted a cute picket fence around my large garden since we moved to the country in 2003. Maybe I just missed our home in town where the yard was fenced in with a white picket fence. It just seemed like this growing space in the country needed some hardscaping. On May 15 this year hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. We spent the weekend in the garden building my dream picket fence a round the 30’x 50′ veggie and flower garden. Our picket fence went in super quick thanks to the Worx SwitchDriver. I shared a video below featuring how easy it is to use this tool. It made putting the picket fence sections on the post permanent super easy and we were super surprised that we didn’t have to charge the battery during the entire process.
Thank you Worx Power Tools for sponsoring this post and providing the Worx SwitchDriver for me to review. All images and text on this page are my opinion.

The fence section sits comfortable on the tempary hook so we can straighten it and apply screws to hold perminately.
Picket fence is complete… veggies and flowers are safe.

Stay tune to see the veggies grow in this fenced in area. I’ll be sharing the trial roses over the weekend so be sure to follow my site by signing up for my newsletter at : Creative Living with Bren Haas Newsletter.

Below are a few photos that I shared on social media of the picket fence in use. As you can see the fence is very helpful at keeping critters out while adding interest to the growing space.
Some of my favorite tomato plants growing happy next to the picket fence. The fence helps protect the fence from critters along with weather conditions.
In the photo above I’m working on spreading straw in the fenced in area. The picket fence helps define my growing space. The roses grow deer free in this area allowing me to have more blooms because the deer can’t eat them. I love my picket fence we put together as a weekend project.
