containment

Here’s the concept for the fence and trellis we plan to add to the front yard.

Why the fence all of a sudden?  We actually wanted to have a fence included in our front yard landscaping project a few years ago, but we were talked out of it, and convinced to use dwarf box hedges instead. Those were a dismal failure, due to the dirt-hogging maple tree out there, which crowds out any plant that attempts to develop a root system.

The fence will give us a bit more separation between the little patio out there and the street.  The neighborhood dogs might feel less free to make use of the front yard for their convenience, and Kitty would feel less vulnerable to passers-by if she’s hanging out in this area.
