We're taking the plunge and putting in a cedar fence that we will let go grey. Here's the sample the fence guy gave us.
And here's a house that has a similar fence in the back. (I better not let Gus or Ollie see this photo, they might try and attack that squirrel!)
We are thinking of changing the pattern a bit, one wide post, two narrow posts, one wide post, one narrow post, etc but I'm pretty sure I like the basic idea. We want something that will offer privacy, but not so solid our neighbors think we hate them.
What do you think?
