Ways to make a garden fence taller, easy attractive and relatively cheap.

[ Edited ]

If I adopt a retired greyhound (see Im feeling sad ) they have massive power, jumping 1 3/4m from standing. Our fences are 4 feet and 5 foot in places so need extra height where there are no high hedges to qualify for ownership.                                                                                                        th.jpg

 

To all the 02 D I Y geeks -   what can you suggest as attractive , easy ways to block the jumper from heading for neighbour's  cats !! About 40ft Comic ideas for fun are also welcome 

Thanks

You could try a trellice or get some wood and expand it

According to this article @Jenny105 

"Due to their size and strength, adoption groups recommend that fences be between 4 and 6 feet tall, to prevent Greyhounds from jumping over them"

 

A great picture here of one jumping https://www.reddit.com/r/Greyhounds/comments/71r8u6/look_at_this_greyhound_jump_i_had_no_idea_they/

 

You can get this trellis to go on top of your existing fence. It's from B&Q

Re: Ways to make a garden fence taller, easy attractive and relatively cheap.

It depends on what type of fence and post you have now.

If a wooden post then you could extend them by using another one either bolted or screwed on.

If concrete posts and you have already reached the top of them then I am not entirely sure. Perhaps by putting a couple of pieces of wood on either side of the existing fence panel to hold a trellis in place.

If you are not the DIY/garden type then it might be worth finding a local trades person to come and have a look.

Now using the LG V30.

Good thinking .........

 

I found some trellis I'd bought earlier , to keep out neighbours bird loving cat . And had 2 fan trellis leaning against the fence

What do you think , needs better attachments but does it look attractive enough and would it do the job.  If so I'll buy some more trellises and poles.

He he luv it.........    I think when boredom sets in they find other things to do. After all if you are no longer chasing little furry things round n round in circles what else is there to make life have a buzz when youre stuck in a garden !!

Looks great @Jenny105! I'd love to hear if you're made any progress with the potential adoption of a retired greyhound? It sounded very exciting smiling
