So we had a split rail fence installed in the yard about a month ago because we are setting up a pool in the yard again this year. Last year my wife was always nervous that the neighbor kid would come down and fall in and drown. Its also a law in Pennsylvania that you must have a fence if you have a pool deeper then 3 feet. We also wanted a fence because our side yard opens directly to the street. It just made us more comfortable when the kids are in the yard that they are not running right out into the street.

The other thing I thought I would like about the fence is that it would keep other people out. Funny thing. Since the fence went up neighbors around us stop by more often. I guess it ain’t so bad. Most of them are pretty nice. However since the fence is up I started building a garden for my wife. Its pretty cool. Its a raised bed garden with eight 4’x 8′ raised beds. I’m almost done filling them with topsoil and then I will finish the interior fence and gate. My wife so far loves it. Its my gift to her for our 14th anniversary.

  1. I would say your wife is very fortunate to have you. You sound happy talking about these things. (Hugs)Indigo

  2. Ok I’m laughing now because there’s this old saying… “good fences make good neighbors” (or some such thing) and that is a principle right? So I’m laughing because I know what that means in my alcoholic head, but maybe it always meant the opposite and I just didn’t think so…
