Twenty years of a garden fence - Good Fences 47

Our garden fence has appeared on many photos in the last 20 years or so.

Interwoven with wooden posts c.1992
Back then it even had an old greenhouse to keep it company.


But time and wind and weather put paid to both.

Concrete posts replaced the wood


When a new neighbour arrived he changed the fence. Out went the interwoven to be replaced by

Wooden planks with a curved top and a concrete slab bottom

Who owns the fence?

Robin - of course.

I really liked the old fence in all it's beauty...however, the OWNER of the fence sure seems to enjoy his perch.
Have a Blessed day..

As long as Rockin' Robin approves, who are we to disagree?

I like the history to this fence and its changes.
The last one is my favourite :)
And the owner is a nice one, too :))
Have a fine day

i liked your earlier version, although the bottom one looks quite sturdy, too. as long as you have your division and privacy, that's a good fence. :)

I too think they both look great. I liked the color of the first one but I bet it didn't stay that color.

I like the old fence better.

Thanks for coming by to visit.

That was fun seeing the transformation of your fence through the years. Mr. Robin has a great view from up there.
