Garden Design Details: Fences

Whenever I see an interesting fence I take a photo or if it’s online or in a magazine I clip it and save it for future reference…someday I’ll get to design a garden fence that’s more than a functional backdrop, and when that happens…here’s some of what I’ve been saving as inspiration…

This fence surrounds part of the James Rose house which is preserved as a museum in Ridgewood, NJ.
