Good Fences -10

We live in the "burbs". When we bought our house 20 years ago, the fence fashion was chain link. Many years, and a few neighbours later, we found that chain link was great to define your property line, but not so good for privacy. Not wanting to spend the money to upgrade the link to 6 foot wooden wonders, we all found an alternative, lattice. It's not pretty, but it does the job.

 
Our neighbours to the left, put up beautiful hanging baskets every spring, that add a touch of colour and beauty to a rather rustic and utilitarian fence line.

I thought the fence looks like made of bamboo we sometimes see here in Japan:)
Beautiful basket with purple color matches the fence♡♡♡

oh, i think you dressed up the fence just fine! still stronger than those big wooden privacy fences (that start out great, but ALWAYS weather and shrink and get blown out by windstorms). this looks more quaint!

I think your lattice fence looks very nice. And the hanging basket lends a nice touch.

Hi Karen, your neighbours have added to the charm of your fence. I like latticing and yours has weathered nicely :D)

Your flower pots hanging over the lattice makes for great photography.

Hanging baskets really do add beauty to the fence line. I bet they have to water the baskets frequently!
