Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

Now that the weather’s beautiful, most of us are spending a good portion of the day outside. And even if you get along wonderfully with your neighbors, there’s no question that you don’t want to spend every moment of every day with them; everyone needs privacy at least some of the time.

If you want to stay on great terms with said neighbors, install a great fence. It doesn’t have to be the typical chain-link or picket fence; check out these pictures for some ideas and inspiration.

Spruce up the ubiquitous wooden fence with some greenery, lights, or frosted glass panels:
