New Fencing

The fencing crew arrived this morning and we have new fencing, a new gate, and my alcove for the compost bins.  Unfortunately, they left before checking with us and I don’t consider the job quite finished.  I’ll be talking to the main contractor about that and I’m sure he’ll make it right.  I’m not worried, and it’s not a big thing, nothing we can’t fix ourselves should we decide to do so.

The old gate is gone!


I have big plans for the wide open green space in the side yard – vegetables and such.

See those rails sticking out to the left?  They were supposed to be finished off at the metal post and then the post covered with a couple of pickets, like the one on the corner.  That would look finished to me.  Plus they left behind one metal post, unused, leaning up against the fence (you can see it there in the background).

Oh, and we wanted that side open, or at least we think we did.  The idea is to use it for trellising green flowering vines there.

    It looks really good, but also like it was difficult to put in because the surface was so uneven. Hope you enjoy your new space.

      Uneven is the name of the game around here! LOL
