The Fence: The Process and Final Result!
It’s finished! I absolutely love it! Not only does it look great, but it also keeps all of the troublemakers, namely Marty, in the yard and out of trouble. To find out the backstory on why we had such an urgent need for the fence check out part one of the story.
As you can see below, we have a huge 16′ gate with a horse panel attached to make sure nobody gets out. It is wide enough that we can fit a big truck or long load if necessary.
As a bonus, it looks like the deer won’t be paying us anymore visits either. Which on one hand makes me sad because I loved that we had deer in our yard everyday but on the flip side I don’t have to worry about our garden (when we plant it) or that Marty will somehow capture one. Our fence is close to 7ft and just a bit too high for them to jump over easily. With rutting season, our trees were being destroyed from the bucks rubbing the fuzz off their antlers. A problem that I never thought I would have. Hopefully our pine trees will survive and grow some new branches now that they will get some reprieve.
We were without a fence for just over a month. Dylon had to remove the old fence about 4 days before they started the new one. It was quite a process and I was fascinated by the whole thing. I guess I never really gave it much thought as to how much work is involved to put up a solid fence. I now have a different appreciation as I drive past the farms here.
Here is the condensed version of putting up our fence.
We would absolutely recommend Tru-Line Fence Company. They did an excellent job. Fast, efficient and really know what they are doing. Plus Marty and Molly really liked them.
