This brilliant project not only provides Tim the security of knowing his kids can’t easily run onto the road, but also provides space to grow food and build connections with neighbours. “I think they’re functional, beautiful and build a bridge between our house and the street. They connect us with people who walk past around food which is something that unites us all.”
When you repair sections of an old fence, the new palings really stand out against those that have weathered over the years. This makeover utilised a Dulux RapidFinish spray gun to dramatically improve the fence and provide an attractive backdrop for new garden planting.
Workshop member John cleverly turned a fence into a wonderful backyard feature by incorporating raised garden beds into the design. He even considered seating to provide an even more welcoming environment for all to enjoy.
Many neighbourhoods now often have two storey homes in close proximity, so extra fence height can be needed to maintain privacy. As an alternative to lattice, Shannon created attractive fence extensions that can even be removed for maintenance.
