When we first moved to our lovely home, there were a few things that needed some upgrading/lovin’. One of those things was the backyard fence. Initially, we really didn’t care that the old fence had a million holes in it and it didn’t matter that every raccoon and neighborhood cat could just stroll on through. That is until we got this guy:
I won’t comment on his breed. Your guess is as good as ours.
Needless to say, we wanted to let our little guy roam the backyard without being able to chase those neighborhood cats all the way back to their own yards. Here is a before shot of the backyard fence (actually, this is after I removed most of it, the section at the far left gives an idea of what we started with – although it is in better shape than the rest was):
After several trips to Home Depot, removal of the existing trees (this step deserves its own post), and with the expert installation from my father-in-law, we ended up with this:
Sure enough, our little guy was super happy with the result as you can see:
If I were to put a rating from 1-10 on how hard this would be to do it your self, with 1 being “so easy your grandmother could do it” and 10 being “hire some one else”, I would put it at a 9. I think for all the project based gardening projects I’ll be sure to use this same scale =). All in all, it was a great success. Happy gardening!
