I'd go with a buttery yellow or an orange but that only be for an accent colour.

question about that fence installation - Hi, Great looking picture- what detail did you use to "lap" the wood on that fence? I'm worried about water and freeze/thaw. Thanks.

I really like the wrapped corners and ends. What prevents the wood from separating at the corner joint as the wood shrinks from drying over time? What kind of fastener was used here? Is the channel siding mitered? Is it working over time?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In reading the designer's notes, I was surprised to learn that this secret side garden was once an asphalt driveway! Wow. The freestanding wall of unstained lumber acts as a screen to hide the pathway from passersby. But step slightly to the right and you discover the walkway of flagstone and crushed rock. This is an inviting way to experience the garden, yet I love how it remains private — for those allowed to enter.More:8 Splendid Designs for a Narrower Side Yard
