Lots-a Rocks!

We built another terraced set of rock walls.  This one was nearly 60 feet long.  We built a set of rustic stairs to get access to the yard, a luxury cedar fence with a simple gateway trellis over a garden gate.  Also, even though I’m not showing it we added an extension on an existing wood deck.  Enjoy.

 

The Horizontal Cedar Fence and how I have learned to (like) it

Fence boards should be oriented like the trees from where they got made: vertically.   Am I right?  No, actually I am not right.  I’m finally on board with this newfangled trend of turning the fence board sideways.  When I say newfangled, of course I mean for a decade now.  Maybe longer.  To me the urban privacy fence needed to not look like an agricultural installation, but after having built dozens and dozens of horizontally oriented luxury privacy fences for very nice customers, I’m just now thinking they can sometimes look sophisticated and urban.  Here’s a picture essay of a fence a recent customer asked us to do.  Ironically, it’s got the agricultural elements of not only the corral-style horizontal fence board but also they wanted corrugated galvanized iron roof panels.  I think it’s a fitting addition to their pastoral-themed yard.  What do you think?
