I wanted a fence that didn't completely block out the outside world and let in light for my garden I built this fence myself it took me nine months and around $7000.

Fortunately we have a stone wall which elevates our facade from our very busy street, but we also like to sit on the front porch in nice weather. What a difference over the years , these arborvitaes and golden thread cypress have grown so much. The arborvitaes are now about 11 feet tall. I planted the cypress bushes way too close to the edge and have had to trim them back as they are jutting out into the sidewalk area interfering with pedestrians (I'm actually considering removing them entirely, and perhaps adding more arborvitaes to the middle section). It does now give us some pockets of privacy from pedestrians, so at least they no longer feel like they're on display as they walk by. The good thing is we've gotten to know so many neighbors while sitting out there....
