The re­sult

Austin American-Statesman - - GARDENING -

I had an un­usual re­quire­ment. Both my neigh­bors on this south side are up­hill from me. A line of huge blocks of stone di­vides our prop­er­ties. I wanted to be able to see the stones un­der the fence. I wanted air cir­cu­la­tion so to pre­vent plant dis­eases. And I wanted to have ac­cess all the way to the stones so that I could cut out any seedlings that the birds and squir­rels and wind plant there.

The so­lu­tion was to make the top of the fence hor­i­zon­tal and let the bot­tom be open. The height of the fence matches the height of the fences each of my neigh­bors built. I hope my neigh­bor is pleased.
