New Fence

Recently we had to replace our 20 year old fence. Its time had come, as you can see below.

I decided to change the design slightly and add the arched effect. Our fence is mostly just a backdrop to the shrubberies and trees in our backyard.

This corner of the yard is a neglected area. We have never settled on a purpose for it.

It’s a few steps away from the house, just far enough that it seems too far. But there is potential. A few beautiful shrubberies up against that fence, along with some comfortable chairs and this spot could be a nice contemplative area. Or just a good spot for admiring the rest of the yard. Suggestions? I’d love to hear them.

I have one tip if you are ever building a fence. Don’t forget to tell your neighbors! Some of the construction will take place on their property and it’s not good to surprise them with people stomping around their garden. How could I forget to do this?! I will be smoothing feathers for the next little while.

Oh well. It’s good to check another home improvement off the list.

  1. Love the fence! That neglected corner may become the highlight of the yard. Do you have a water feature in the yard? That might be a perfect spot.
