There is a small fence in the alley at Garden on Sherlock Street where we store our trash bin on "non-trash days" and store items that need to be taken somewhere else. While it looks intact in this photo, the posts are rotten and the boards need renailed on constantly.
We made quick work of removing the pickets.
The lush green you see beyond the trash fence is mint. I mow it down occassionally during the summer and it always looks beautiful again in the fall.
The fence rails came off.
The posts were so loose, my wonderful husband just pulled them out of the ground.
After this, he started putting together the posts and stringers. That was the end of one Saturday working on this project. We might have gotten farther but it took forever at the lumber yard in the morning--long story.
The next Saturday, he dug new (bigger) holes.
Then, the new (taller) posts were installed with new stringers. Concrete was poured around each post and we waited overnight.
On Sunday, boards were attached.
All done. A nice new trash fence.
