As promised yesterday, here is my post on the project we worked on last week. We built a fence! I have always loved the look of split rail fences, which could have stemmed from growing up with them surrounding our farm. They just look so rustic and charming and I knew that I wanted one at our place, it just took us a while to figure out where.
After putting our hedge in this spring, we knew we wanted to finish off the property line with a fence in the front yard. Our neighbours have a crazy looking yard, which we affectionately call "the hay field" so we were pretty excited to get up the fence and create more of an obvious dividing line between the two lots.
So this is the blank canvas we started with, starting from the last cedar bush to the telephone pole at the front of the yard.
Then it was show time!
Oh, but before I get too carried away, I should mention that we did hit a little bit of a road bump. We miscalculated how many posts and rails we needed and ended up being short.
So we just got to work doing as much as we could.
And as a bonus, I can totally cross this off my 13 Goals for 2013 list as well as my Outdoors List!
