Ok folks. My dual-Perfect Storm unit (two 500 watt halogens + two 500 watt photoflood flash bulbs), Mausoleum, lighting up backyard trees with red and green laser spots, and other items are causing kids to run over areas of the yard that present a tripping hazard. Going cemetery-fence-free is no longer an option, since I plan on expanding my yard haunt out even further.
I've got about two weeks left of Father-in-Law "free build" time (in-laws are snowbirds and passing through), and providing him with a large cemetery fence project would be a great project for him to keep busy. I'm thinking part wood, part PVC pipe. Or all PVC? What's "best"--either in terms of stability, cost, or a combo of both?
Anyhoo... So, I'd like to see what folks have built / suggest for creating a cemetery fence. Cost is definitely a factor. I know some have used free pallets to build their cemetery fences. Any good sources in the Raleigh, NC area for free pallets? But also thinking about easy set-up and take down too... Interested in your advice.
The fencing itself doesn't have to *look* elaborately themed. What's most important to me is protecting trick-or-treaters from a tripping hazard.
Here are a few videos to give you an idea of what I have now and what type of space I may need to enclose. I think kids are seeing the Gemmy Blue Kaleidoscope Spotlight on the side of my house (never lit / haunted the side of my house that faces a street corner) and then running up to the house that way, through part of the graveyard.
Even considered asking father-in-law to create some buried conduit that would run the extension cables from the side of the house underground to the Dead Center of the graveyard. If anyone has ideas / photos / videos of doing that to further prevent tripping hazards, please post.
