How do I preserve that red wood look? Just installed new fence which usually go dark grey. Can I somehow keep the color ?

We have a wooden privacy fence around our Florida town home courtyard which will need to be replaced in the next few years. Are there any products that will look the same as wood, be paintable and yet withstand the Florida weather?

try an electronic dog.

Motionsensor hooked up to an electronic chip connected to loudspeakers.

Burglar arrives, dog barks fiercely

Burglar leaves

If you have an alarmsystem that chirps, beeps, has a siren etc. burglars commonly ignore them because they are in and out in under 2 min (mostly)

But nobody messes with 2" teeth
