I realized as I started writing this that I don't have any pictures of what it looked like before, at least I can't find any. To the casual observer, it wasn't bad, but if you are trying to take out one fence and put in another it was a lot of junk back there! We cleared out enough trees and bushes to fill our trailer up four times! Good thing it's free to dump it.
Here is what it looked like after some cleaning up.
Now that it is all cleaned up it's time to pull out the old fence and put in the new.
Once Tyson got this fence out, we sold it on Craig's List! Love getting money for something we would have thrown away. And since someone bought it we didn't have to haul it anywhere. They came and loaded it up!
I know, it's a beautiful fence.
Tyson put up a 6' cedar fence where this one use to be. I thought I took some pictures of him and the kids working on it, but I can't find them anywhere. This picture is of our big dirt pile which will one day be our garden, and behind it you can see the fence. Of course the boys are on the dirt. Boys and dirt are like magnets.
It's so nice to have a real fence up! Now we can be in our backyard and no one can see all of our doings. And with all of our doings lately everyone looks as they drive by.
