6th Street, Old Louisville
Until we moved, our six dogs had spent their entire lives living in a house with a tiny but well-fenced yard. Now they have 7 lovely acres to enjoy - woods and streams, hills, trails. We're up and back 1/4 mile from the road, with a curved drive that keeps the road out of sight and at a safe distance.
You might think that would be enough.
It's not. The little shits have made a game of running right down the drive straight for the road. We've had to go and collect several of them, and now they're all going out on leashes - something we didn't even have to do on when we lived downtown in the city.
We're going to have to install a fence. We can't fence the whole 7 acres, and wouldn't want to anyway. We don't want to fence the entire acre or so that's lawn, either. What we want is a portion of the lawn - surrounding the house, or maybe just part of it - to be fenced and gated.
I'm looking at these for inspiration - the last 3 are of the same fence, and looks the simplest, and least expensive to accomplish. One major difference: all our plantings will be on the outside of the fence.
