319/366: recycled fence extension

 Attacking the garden with renewed vigour after our recent holiday to Thailand, I think I overdid it yesterday, since it was one of the worst hayfever days of the season.

The recycled bamboo blinds on the paling fence at the end of the pergola did not cover the whole fence, so I still needed to add something at the top that would also provide a screen between the neighbour’s window and our outdoor entertaining area.


I used some treated pine lattice that was lying around, and attached some recycled pieces of brush fencing with a staple gun, which also helped tidy up the patio. Why go out and buy things when you can create something from things you already have? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE shopping for pretty much anything, but I get great pleasure out of being resourceful and creative.

  1. Hayfever is not pleasant, having developed the dreaded allergies early in my 40’s. The nasty culprit for us is Ragweed, among the throngs of grasses, and many many others in our area. The saving grace for us, or relief for many is the sign of our first frost. Hope you feel better. Your bamboo fencing looks great.
