Please, Fence Me In

The fence that my neighbor and I share was getting pretty rotten, so we finally decided to tear it down and build a new one.  I'm quite happy with the results!  While we were at it, I decided to tear down the one-year old fence along the back of my yard and use the leftover materials to make it match the side yard. To add some visual interest, we used copper post caps on each post, as well as clear cedar 1x4's horizontally to coincide with the 2x4's on the other side. That way the fence looks pretty much the same from both sides.


  1. Nice fence! I like how you used the piece of cedar to make the two sides look alike. Nice neighborly touch!

  2. What a beautiful fence and great privacy!

  3. did you buy pre-assembled sections ala Home Despot or build the whole thing from scratch... and if not too personal of a question: approx. how much did this cost? We're toying with the idea of replacing our chain link now... like we don't have anything better to do!
