Both, my 3 year old had too much interest in it at 2 years so I had a stake & mesh fence that I got tired of looking at. Then last Oct we adopted a 2 year old border collie mix (part border collie & guessing husky, lab & maybe some shepherd) so the fence came in handy. Now I wanted something more decorative & permanent. There are 4 gates leading into the pond that will have trails associated with them. But trying to finish the fence enough to keep the dog out this year, then gonna clean up unwanted weeds & mesh fence as much as I can next summer. Dog with my 3 year old holding a tea cup,going, it's a hat dad!Wow, plants sure have filled in since last saw pics of your waterfall/stream/pond areas! So, are you fencing off the area for safety for the kids, or will you have a walking path back there as well? I love the style of the fence you are building!
It is. As for work, yes & no, I would go the yard waste site, collect tree branches, cut them to size, drill holes & nail them in place. No I just have to wait for the treated wood to weather. I need to weed the garden but probably not until spring. Anytime I want to go in, the kids want to also & it's tricky at times to keep an eye on them while weeding. I'll try to upload pis soon but here's the fish in the bottom pond hungry as always any time I walk by. The dog has been amazing since we adopted her. We had 3 cats but had to put one down in February/March he had essentially irritable bowel syndrome for cats & was on steroids plus a special diet for it. He developed diabetes as a result along with a 3rd issue I forget but at the end he stopped eating & his last 2 weeks I did insulin injections along with IV fluids because he stopped eating. Finally had to put him down when he got too weak to move. Then recently my mother in law works at a Kwik Trip gas station in the food preparation, someone dropped off a kitten between the doors I. The early morning. She called us, my wife saw it & would've taken it but the manager wanted to call animal control in case it was a lost cat. We went to the humane society that day to see if it was dropped off & filled out papers to get it when available & did. Ironically she exhibits a lot of similiar traits to the CST we lost & the kids get to experience a kitten.Is that a fence made out of sticks? Looks like lots of hard work!
