  1. Fences lways look nice. We live in a rental right now but when we get some property in the country this is one thing I want.

  2. I don’t remember seeing any houses without some kind of fence. I never knew about neighbors’ approval until my daughter and her family bought a new home in a new subdivision. They had to compromise with the other neighbors about the size and style of the fences. I have always thought fences added not only security to one’s property, but a certain personal touch. This was pin worthy and share worthy. Thank you for sharing!!
