New Back Fence

I can't take the credit for this project because we hired someone to do it for us. We contemplated the idea of doing it ourselves but it just seemed like it would take too much time and we wanted to make sure it was done really well and we weren't quite sure how to do it. I'm still posting about it because it was a major thing to break down and get done.

The fence we had was there for 20 years and it had broken, fallen over multiple times and had many boards missing, so it was time to go! Plus is was only 4 feet tall, giving us no privacy at all. And every person that walked down the street behind our house was barked at by Buckley and Truman...now they won't be able to see over our nice, new 6 foot fence :)

Here are some before and after pictures for you:

Look at what a huge difference it makes! We're so glad we finally got this done. And please excuse the messy yard! I know it isn't much to look at for now but next summer we're really hoping to landscape.


  1. What a difference! It looks awesome, thanks for sharing the pics :)

  2. Sure! It's kind of embarrassing now to look at the "before" pics...it was so awful!
