At 51, I remember what it's like to have been a 16 year old punk. When you 
have a fence up, it keeps folks with poor impulse control from trashing your 
garden on an impulse.  Teenaged males and growing pumpkins in a patch when said 
teeners are filled with Ballantine's Ale ( still a favorite of mine) or some 
bargain special, is a problem waiting ot happen. 

So unless   you have a large, fast, garden troll named Igor. a garden fence 
is imperative.   

Best wishes, Adam Honigman
