Where do you obtain the rustic materials to build this fence? - Where did you obtain the materials (the rustic wood slats) for this fence?

This building is situated on a large wooded property. The rustic slats are made of wood gathered from the property. The base of the fence is made from reclaimed field stones from an 18th century stone wall running the length of the property that had fallen into ruin.

Everything is unbelievably well done - my compliments to the designer and builder! How did you secure the wooden fence to the dry wall without compromising the stability?

What is the color and manufacturer of the stone?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The stone was gathered from a fallen 18th century wall that ran through the property. The stone would be referred to as Pennsylvania field stone from the Chester County region. If you were to contact a quarry in the area they might be able to provide additional information. We would recommend Rolling Rock Building Stone out of Boyertown, Pa.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Archer's team paid careful attention to the stonework throughout the cottage and grounds to ensure that it would feel appropriate to the original 18th-century wall.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
Stone and unpainted wood are equally authentic choices for fencing, and this fence artfully combines both. You can even use hedges to create a boundary. Keep the materials simple; for example, a stone wall should be short and look dry set, not like a massive construction piece.
