As previously mentioned the fence in my backyard needs replacing – 10 years ago! And now with summer on its way decisions need to be made sooner than later.
So what’s the 10 year hold up you ask?
What should the fence look like, what style do I want? Should I go with horizontal or vertical fence boards? Stained or natural? Should it have modern influences or be more traditional? And what extra details should be incorporated into the design?
I have posted twice about fence designs. See My Fence Design Dilemma and More Fence Designs.
Similar to a home’s interior décor I believe a fence requires as much thought to the style and design.
Recently a neighbour of mine decided it was time to tear down their old dilapidated garage and install a parking pad and build a new privacy fence. Yeah for me! The [ugly] garage is now gone and there is a really nice fence to admire. And…..I love the design.
The fence boards run horizontally and are staggered in width with narrower boards at the top creating interest and a sense of design. To break up the abundance of wood 2 panels of sand blasted glass were incorporated giving a contemporary feel to the fence.
I like the gate hardware, a black lever-style handle, a variation from the norm. A peep-hole ‘viewing sliver’ has been built into the design also.
So…..is there hope/inspiration for my fence replacement?

This is my choice. I wonder about roots regarding the willow tree fence. Maybe they are different
