Create a sturdy, maintenance-free fence made from PVC pipe. PVC pipe fencing can be used outdoors around a garden, yard or walkway. It can also be used indoors to organize lines at carnivals or other large gatherings. PVC pipe is an extremely inexpensive material that can be purchased at nearly any hardware store. Fencing made from PVC pipe is convenient and portable, as it can be quickly taken apart and put back together.
Things You'll Need
- For each segment:
- 10 3-foot sections of pipe
- 20 6-inch sections of pipe
- 10 12-inch section of pipe (outdoor fence)
- 10 3-inch section of pipe (indoor fence)
- Cap (indoor pipe)
- 1 Elbow connector
- 19 T connectors
- For each corner:
- 1 3-way corner connector
- 1 4-way corner connector
Place an elbow connector on the top of a 3-foot section of pipe. Place a T connector on the bottom of the pipe. The elbow connector and middle opening of the T connector should face the same direction. If the fence is going to be used indoors, place a 3-inch section of pipe in the bottom of the T connector and place a cap on the end of the pipe section. If the fence is going to be used outdoors, place a 12-inch section of pipe in the bottom of the T connector and insert this downward section into a hole in the ground.
Place a 6-inch section of pipe in each horizontal opening. Place a T connector on the end of each 6-inch section of pipe. The middle openings should face each other. Connect 10 6-inch sections of pipe together with a T connector between each on the top and bottom of the fence. Place a 3-inch section of pipe between each pair of middle T connector openings.
Place a T connector on the end of the top section. Place a 3-foot section of pipe in the middle opening. Place a cross connector on the bottom of the pipe. If the fence is going to be used indoors, place a 3-inch section of pipe in the bottom of the cross connector and place a cap on the end of the pipe section. If the fence is going to be used outdoors, place a 12-inch section of pipe in the bottom of the cross connector and insert this downward section into a hole in the ground.
Continue adding sections by repeating steps 2 and 3.
Create a corner section by replacing the T connector and cross connector in Step 3 with a 3-way corner connector and a 4-way corner connector.
End the fence with the section described in Step 1.
