When we moved to Linderhof 32 years ago, there was a "privacy" fence on the back property line
It replaced a privet hedge that was probably planted when the house was built
It was made out of plain boards and considering the low cost of erecting the fence,
it lasted 35 years which is probably 10 years longer than it should!
It looked rickety
(like if our dogs weighed 200 pounds instead of 20 a good lunge at the fence and down it would come!)
So we hired a fence builder
A "fence whisperer"
And the day finally came when he appeared
To build us a new fence!
Here yesterday, gone today
(no fence which meant that the dogs only could go out front and only on a leash --
they were not happy dogs.
Mollie laid on the breakfast room floor looking out at the garden - HER garden)
They dug the holes for the posts
Not by hand -- they had a BIG hole digging machine!
Then you put in the posts
In concrete for you don't want your fence to fall down!
Cross boards to hold the upright boards
And fence building began!
Every good fence builder needs a break
And so I baked some oatmeal, raisin, pecan cookies for them!
And they ate them all!
The new fence
It's taller than the old one
(which is good for the garden seems more private)
We definitely don't have to worry about the dogs getting out of any nooks and crannies
for it hugs the ground
And from our alley
Doesn't that fence look like a masterpiece
If the old one lasted 35 years, this one will last 100!
Thanks to Bill Lalman and his crew for the wonderful job
that they did on our back fence.
If you live in SE Kansas and want a fence built,
Bill's your guy!
