Shingle Weed Barrier for Electric Fence

I can't take credit for thinking this one up. I had a friend over admiring the electric fence around my garden. I told her that because we had such a low wire to keep bunnies out that it shorted out all the time from weeds growing up on it, and I didn't have time to weed eat it every three days.

She had seen a few packs of shingles left over from our roofing at our last house and suggested that I use those to keep the weeds from growing up. What a great idea.

I have been preparing my overgrown garden for next year and implemented that plan. I used 2 packs of asphalt shingles.
