I'd like to put some sort of a short fence around the garden, because I know that when there's veggies in there, the neighbourhood critters will enjoy a smorgasbord.

I was thinking something simple and cheap like chickenwire and a few posts, but was wondering if anyone has experience with this and how they executed it.

This is the outside perimeter of the garden that will need fence:

Your set-up looks good for either chicken wire or rabbit fencing. Our problem is we have is wildlife digging holes under the edges to get in, but your paving stones should really deter that, especially if you fence along the inside edge of them. You may need to anchor it in place to prevent gaps, in addition to the fence posts. We also try to get the green-coated wire, which is more expensive but looks nicer; it's available in both types of fencing. The rabbit fencing is a bit taller and sturdier, but doesn't keep out squirrels or rats.....
