modern twist on a fence...

9:22 PM

I love love love these horizontal cedar fences by builder/designer Peter A. Kirsch-Korff. They are beautiful, modern and natural.

If we had a private yard out back or bushes that gave us some privacy I would probably leave it. But I feel like every time I go out to look at my flowers, hang out in the sun or play with the kids in the back I have to think about what I wear (I mean that I can't just go out in boxers and my husbands t-shirt) cause everyone around us can see everything we do in our yard. It's annoying and some privacy would be nice.

I loathe our fence right now, it is chain link (head held low in shame)...unfortunately we were not able to get our cedar fence this year. :( Now friends and family are telling us not to put the money into a new fence since it's our fist house. But, secretly I couldn't disagree more!

Mark my words, between you and me I will put in a cedar fence in our backyard. It may not be super fancy or elaborate, but I'll get there...just don't tell Steve about my plans yet. ;)

I've found it's best to let him think he is in control when it comes to decorating, landscaping and construction. But I'm really behind it all, gently yet persistantly convincing him it is his idea.
