The wood for the fence was collected from the property as with most of the stone. Most likely cedar.

A low, whimsical stone bridge arches over a drainage ditch. "Once the building was designed, the clients fell in love with it and wanted to go further and create walls and gardens befitting a hobbit, but set in rural Chester County, Pennsylvania," Archer says.
