SB 10.11.35
vrndavanam sampravisya
 sarva-kala-sukhavaham
tatra cakrur vrajavasam
 sakatair ardha-candravat


Translation:
In this way they entered Vrndavana, where it is always pleasing to live in all seasons. They made a temporary place to inhabit by placing their bullock carts around them in the shape of a half moon.

Purport:

As stated in the Visnu Purana:

sakati-vata-paryantas
 candrardha-kara-samsthite

And as stated in the Hari-vamsa:

kantakibhih pravrddhabhis
 tatha kantakibhir drumaih
nikhatocchrita-sakhabhir
 abhiguptam samantatah

There was no need to make fences all around. One side was already defended by thorn trees, and thus the thorn trees, the bullock carts and the animals encircled the inhabitants in their temporary residence.
