Back Yard Fence

Being that we live in a row house, our neighbors' yard is very, very close. And our neighbor is not nearly so interested in creating anything close to something recognizable as a garden. In fact, our neighbors' yard is more like a jungle. A jungle of ugly.

We needed a fence.

The fence is split bamboo in 13 foot lengths. We bought six of them from our local Ace Hardware store, Highland Hardware and Bike Shop. Mr. Man reinforced the existing fence supports, removed the BARBED WIRE (what in the holy hell goodness was BARBED WIRE doing on a backyard fence?! Wait. Don't answer) and secured the fence to the (now) secure posts.

Let me introduce you to (from left to right): Senora Gooseberry, Mr. Tiny Variegated Hosta, Mr. Sedum, Ms. Astilbe, Miss Coreopsis, Senor Day Lily, Miss Heuchera, Lady Peony and Mr. Other Variegated Hosta.

  1. I love that fence. So simple yet elegant. The weather has wreaked havoc with our stockade fence. How durable is this?

    Maybe that barbed wire was there to keep out the creatures coming over from the jungle!
