a loop of fence

The garden is surrounded by a tall fence, so nobody can go into the garden. The garden's shape is square and the surrounding fence is square too.

Can I say a loop of fence surrounds the garden? Can I use "loop" here?

    "Ring" is worse than "loop" for me; I was debating "loop," but "ring" absolutely says "circle-shaped" to me.

    I may be picturing it wrong. Is this a large fence, with a small part of it surrounding the garden, or is the entire fence surrounding the garden?
