Fence’s Done

June 25, 2021

I like our new fence. When I am looking back on my blog decades from now, I wonder if I’ll think, “Wow, look how spiffy and clean and new our front yard fence looked back then!”

Ruben suggested the copper tubing, which I think looks great and ties it into the copper tubing on the screen in front. The spacing — 1 1/2 inch boards, intersperced with 5″ boards — was my idea, fashioned after a fence I spotted on Villanova one day. Ruben was game.

The spaces are large enough that the objects on the opposite side provide all kinds of texture and variation. I think it’s simple, yet interesting and arty, and solid. Handsome, really.
