This project also had a historic landscape architect - Catherine O'Connor with Co'Design - who rehabilitated and restored the site. I forwarded this question and her reply was "It's stripped Ash Juniper (or as we colloquially call Cedar) pickets, posts and rails set on concrete footing with steel angle attachments."

She added she didn't know how it would fare in the mid-west as she had not designed in that area, nor was she sure if Ash Juniper even grows there. And IMHO we can only hope they don't! They're not lovely trees, and cedar fever is a misery.

Thanks very much. Sounds like the fence not only looks great, but provides a great community service.

I am utterly charmed by pool house. Is it new? Could you tell us dimensions of footprint including portico? - Was there historic precedent for small Greek Revival board & batt buildings in this region? Its really lovely.
