A proper entry

A proper entry for a beautiful private garden. Constructed post on pipe so that over time if the posts need to be replaced, they can be easily. The full 3/4 inch cedar boards were sustainably caught... quite literally. They were washed up from storm felled trees along the Stillaguamish River and naturally wind felled. It's a very limited supply for such special materials, but makes a great quality fence.

A large main gate provides entry from the drive, and two adjacent gates hide the trash and recycle from view on both sides. A must to keep a garden looking tidy is keeping unsightly cans hidden.

Wanna see a before and after? There will be more of these at the end, but this one is pretty fun to see. After we constructed the new fence, we were able to tear down the old one which added a ton of new space to the garden.

Here is the before, with the old fence surrounding what used to be a gigantic unused circular driveway. It also has a precious Clematis Montana that is being saved for relocation, so that is still visible in the after photos...

Tada! Now that is a good sized garden. We will build a large entertaining deck next, so stay tuned for more fun photos :)

It looks so serene now. I bet it's nice to relax outside.

Oh, that would be nice :) It's not our house, we do this for a living.

Someday, it will be our house that we get to install for.
