" inspiration..."--Easy-Care Landscaping

Whether it's rustic, formal, or simply a charming old fashioned white picket, a fence reveals a lot about your home and design sense. Here's how to build one from scratch, choose a good ready-made version from a store, or decorate an existing fence so it's a landmark once again. A gallery introduces a range of types, from ones found in a simple cottage garden to something fancy and elaborate. Use this as a springboard for selecting your own fence. Then get started! General information on construction covers tools, lumber, coatings, stains, paints, varnishes, and hardware, as well as specifics for building fences out of pickets, twigs, and lattices. Embellish the finished project with murals, block printing, stenciling, stamping, birdfeeders, scarecrows, and more!
