Ok we didn’t really put up a whole new fence, but we did kind of embellish what we had. For reasons we don’t know, one side of our garden had a low fence, whilst everywhere else in the neighbourhood has higher fences. Doesn’t seem like much of a big deal, right? Well to be honest it isn’t in the grand scheme of things, but we sometimes felt like having a lower fence meant we lost out on a bit of privacy for us and the neighbour next door. The issue though, we were very conscious that putting in a higher fence might mean losing some light into the garden. The sun rises from that very side of the garden. I think we solved that conundrum though, we put up a set of lattice panels which give privacy as they break up the view but also let the light through.
Our original plan had been to paint the new panel in the same colour as the rest of the fence but we’ve decided we actually like the contrast so we are just going to paint the uprights/posts and leave the panels the lighter colour.
