Construction & Contractors Blog

Starting a garden in your very own backyard is a wonderful endeavor. You are probably imagining all of the delicious vegetables that you intend to plant and can almost visualize the look of enjoyment on your family's faces as they consume the bounty that you present to them. The first step to getting your garden off on the right foot is making sure that the space is ready for the project. 

You might have already cleared the area off and started adding nutrients to the soil, but there's something else you should do as well:  Fence trenching. Fence trenching is a very beneficial way to protect your new garden. Keep reading to learn more about the process and to see why it's something that you just shouldn't skip out on.

Fence Trenching Keeps The Wildlife Out

Picture this scenario:  You've worked hard at your garden for several months and have finally been able to achieve the kind of output that you've always desired. The vegetables are colorful and abundant, and you can't wait to pick them so you can enjoy a great meal. After you are done with your gardening for the day, you head inside and prepare yourself for bed so you'll be well-rested when it's time to harvest the crop the next morning. You wake up and head outside only to find that rabbits have completely ransacked your garden! All of your hard work has been demolished overnight because the wildlife came through and ate to their heart's content.

These are the kinds of situations you want to avoid at all costs. Trenching your fence creates a barrier that makes it very difficult for small animals to find their way into your garden. You'll be able to relish the fruits of your labor without experiencing the disappointment that can come about when you've invested so much time and effort into something that is ruined in an instant.

Fence Trenching Is A Natural Gutter System

You should also consider how rain will affect your new garden. Excessive amounts of rain can clog up the soil and remove the nutrients in it. When you trench the fence around your garden, it creates a natural run-off system that pulls the extra water away.

Fence trenching services can come in and perform the work for you. Give them a call before you start your garden and you'll see just how helpful they can be.

Stop Mold in Its Tracks

Hi, I'm Carey Johnson. Mold can be more dangerous than you might realize. I learned that when my little girl started having asthma and allergy attacks inside the house. I couldn’t figure out what was causing it. We changed the filter in the air conditioner frequently, and we kept the house very clean. We couldn’t, however, figure out where the allergens were coming from. Finally, we discovered the mold that was growing on the floor of the attic – right above my daughter’s room! No wonder she was having breathing problems! Once we found it, we went right to work learning how to get rid of it for good. We ended up reconstructing the attic, and I learned that I enjoyed learning about construction.
