Building a Living Fence

Cool Idea, just need to figure where to do this in my yard…. Alternative Gardning: Building a Living Fence
Alternative Gardning: Building a Living Fence Major living fence applications in the United States have utilized Osage orange trees (Maclura pomifera), also called hedge apple or horse apple. Easily propagated from seeds, cuttings or sprouts from the roots, Osage orange is tolerant of a wide range of soils, resistant to drought, long-lived, and affected little by insects or disease. Planted at a spacing of 1 foot, in four years it makes a fence that is “horse-high, bull-strong and hog-tight.”

Instead of putting rocks in the bottom of big porch planters, she fills the bottom with sealed empty plastic 20 ounce bottles! They give the pot the drainage it needs, without adding all that extra weight! So smart!!

.This picture represents what is wrong with the way our whole society is functioning these days with non-renewable water bottles and plastic that is very harmful to the earth. If we could somehow find a way around all this wasting somehow maybe we can start to clean up the mess we are currently creating. Until then we are not slowing down our pace at which we are polluting our planet with harmful plastics and artificial materials. We have to put into action some way to stop the pollution.
