I came across this fence project in the Summer 2009 Better Homes & Gardens Do It Yourself magazine (thankful for my workplace magazine swappers!). Complete directions for this project can be found at http://www.diyideas.com/outdoorideas/Structures/fence-ideas_ss12.html.
This fence project would look amazing out by the end of the driveway, right behind the boulder that we brought over from the shops last fall. And it would be easy to find some colorful annuals to fill the pots to bring some color to that shady area. I just have to figure out where to get my hands on an old portion of fencing.
