This project started with the idea of replacing an old wooden privacy fence that was falling apart. We wanted to not only replace the fence with something functional, but also something that would give us an updated look. We used Cedar, which is conducive to getting a modern, contemporary look and we installed the pickets horizontally, which works to accentuate the long, straight lines of the walkway. We decided to go without a gate, which gives it an inviting, friendly look. As you follow the walkway to the back we wanted to build towards the feeling of entering a quiet, secluded garden. The garden boxes are fully functional to grow herbs and vegetables, but are constructed with Cedar to continue the theme we started with the fence. In order to keep the plants healthy, we installed an irrigation zone specifically for the garden boxes that can be operated using a smartphone app. We believe if you are going to garden, you may as well do it in style.
