Our house came with a cheap vinyl/chain link combo fence. (ugly!) After living with it for a couple of years we decided to put in a new one. And now it's finally done!
(Steven's parents bought us that tree during their visit to celebrate Steven's birthday. It's a Cherokee Brave dogwood, and I cannot wait until it blooms in spring!)
Looking at the photos, I'm a little bit afraid that it looks unfriendly and that our neighbors will think we don't like them, but I love it anyway.
We took out a whole bunch of arborvitae (and gave them to neighbors- it's not hard to give away free trees.) which really opened up the backyard. It looks twice as big!
We wanted to keep the fence full height (6 feet) across the driveway, but didn't want to have to open a 6' x 6' gate every time we came home.
So we put in a little hobbit door (that's what I have been calling it.)
Please excuse the construction mess- I couldn't wait to take pictures.
Besides, Ollie likes to use the piles of dirt as perches to get a better view.
Now, all that's left to do is to tear down the garage (isn't it hideous?) and replace it with a garden shed. (hint, hint!)
