The space we have been using for several years followed the original circular shape of the landscaped grass. Last year I considered expansion but didn't want to go through the work of saving the grass and moving it to another location. However, last summer's weather ravaged the lawn and we are left with a patchy, weedy ground cover--an opportunity for expansion!
My first step was to move the fence and change the shape from circular to a straight line. I pulled up the existing posts and tried to drive them into the ground in a new spot until I ran into rocks.

I would like to be able to comment that in this photo Sable was bringing a pole to me to use on the fence.
However, Sable's only concern was herself and finding something to play with and chew.
Sable didn't bring me poles or tools, but she did accomplish some hole digging of her own in the garden and keep me company during the expansion project.
The fence has been moved and is in a straight-ish line (I wasn't too picky about that) and ready for a load of garden soil.
