The Secret of Black

New construction, established neighborhood, million+ dream home.


Tight property line, above.  I knew to use 4-board fencing with hogwire, stain it black & plant confederate jasmine.
.
Their home, to the right of the fence is brick painted white & black shutters.  White was never a choice for the 4-board fencing.  Black recedes, makes the area 'feel' larger.
.
Loved being able to have this bit of Chatsworth in the suburbs.

Great idea - and that opens up to borrow such a nice, autumnal view.

Simple, inexpensive, solution for screening. It will be beautiful in full bloom as well. Adding the copper caps to the posts lifts the look to a whole new level.

Simple, inexpensive screening. It will be so beautiful in full bloom. The copper caps on the posts bring the fencing to a whole other level. Hopefully you will revisit this when fully established.
