However, the fence need only be those green light-duty U-posts & thin
bird/deer netting (the kind you drape over trees & shrubs, with bright
strings or ribbons at dog-eye level to make it visible). Secure the
bottom of the fence netting with rocks, & tie the netting to each post.
For individual shrubs, I use 3' galvanized fencing, looped into in a 2'
diameter cylinder, with the snipped fence ends twisted around the other
side to hold it in cylinder shape. I've also learned to drive a 4'
U-post into the ground next to the loop, & fasten it to the fence loop
with plastic ties: ground stakes will not permit a 3' fence loop to
withstand a solid hit from a playful Labrador. When the shrubs are
large enough, I reuse the fence loops for new shrubs.
