    Hey guys Have you ever built wooden walls, or a maze outside? If so, how did you secure it, I usually just do the black plastic, but you can't do much with it

    We are using the black plastic and camo netting then we cut limbs from slash pines and dig holes in front of the plastic and put the limbs into the hole so that it looks like a small dead tree. We are going to put cob webs in some and crows in others. It's just to keep people away way from the walls and to make it look like the forest is alot thicker.

    Be sure and anticipate the extremes of nature that those walls may have to stand up against. I'm referring to wind, mostly, you wouldn't want people becoming human sandwhich meat between the panels!
    As a number of feet walk over grass the grass disappears, rain makes it mud, messy, slippery going then. Wood chips, gravel will be needed then.
    make sure there are no buried electrical or gas or phone lines where your outdoor maze is to be placed , then wooden stakes can be driven into the earth with big hammers , then the wooden panels screwed to these stakes to make everything stronger.
    Alternate method: Drill holes down through the bottom 2 by 4 plate, then drive re-bar pieces down through it into the earth. This hides the stake, unlike the wooden stake method and eliminates something that could potentially catch on someone's ankle as they walk by it.

    heh, go Jim! Good point though about having to account for things like weather...and human sandwhich meat. One year my friends and I were building a haunted house out of press board panels and 2 X 2's. After building a good portion of it we got to building this long hallway...and it was kind of freestanding since the maze wasnt built up to it yet to give it added support and integrity. It was a windy day and all of a sudden the walls started to lean and fall. We were able to dive out...barely though haha. It was a drag though cuz we had to rebuild it all.
    my yellow in this case is not so mellow, infact I'm tryin to say, its frightened like me

    When I was in the JCs we put up a sign painted on wood to advertise the haunt and point to it's location. The weather changed and blew the sign ontop of a woman's new car parked next to it.
    "OOPS!"
    (It was a pretty blue 69 Chevelle 396 convertible, I'd like to have that car now!)
