fencing ideas for the front and side yard. When we moved out to the country eight years ago he wanted to fence in the yard. I've held him off this long but now, with Miss Pepper around, he's more than ready to fence us in.
We live on roughly six acres with a couple ponds. All along the front of the property and up the driveway can be seen by anyone driving by and us, all the time, so we want it to be decorative. The other two borders of the property can be more functional than decorative.
I am not sure what I want but I do know it will not be a typical fence, I tend to avoid typical at all costs. Here's a few of the ideas I've put together for him to choose from:
I really love this take on a traditional wood fence. It reminds me of my rebar staircase inside. It'd work for me just fine and still let the dog see through a little bit. My only negative, I've had to stain wood fences before and I HATE it! Do I really want to have to keep up with all that wood. Not really!
I really love this one. I think it blends perfectly my husbands need for practicality and cost effectiveness with my need to artsy it up. This might just be our winner! Think of the variety of flowering vines I could plant along the fenceline. I'm drooling already!
He asked for a couple ideas so he could start figuring out the fence, I'm sure that'll be his spring project. I think I've given him plenty to think about. Wonder what he'll decide? Can't wait to find out so I can start planning my projects around this one. What would you choose? Do you have an interesting fence design? I'd love to see it!
