I like it. Does the re-bar have a specific purpose in your situation. I think I need to add vertical elements.

Vertical elements to keep dog and domestic fouls in, and deer, dogs, foxes and coyotes out. Do you have any thoughts on this?

Thanks for asking! The rebar serves as the guard rail, but the material was chosen strictly for aesthetics. What I have done on several projects to serve your purposes is to use 4" square wire stretched between posts - it restrains animals and children, but stays rustic AND disappears if you have a view behind. You can find it in any home improvement store. Good luck!

Thank you for responding. We are trying to do really cheap espalier fence, which will eventually go about 120' across the yard to separate the wild from the garden. The ground is very uneven, so I think stringing wire, like in your 1st photo, is preferable to the ridged panels in the 2nd photo, because of all the trying to fill in underneath. I'm surprised how much we like the rebar, it ads to the whole composition. Are you in the Portland area?

Nope, so the only wildlife I have in Topanga Canyon are bunnies and squirrels!
