    Were the notches in the posts custom cut? We love it and we're looking to do a similar design. Beautiful!

        DIY? Designing and installing a new fence or gate is not typically a DIY project, though homeowners with some building experience can certainly tackle it. Just be aware that if you are handling the project on your own, it is your responsibility to obtain necessary permits, find out where your property line is and check with the local utility companies before digging to be sure no underground lines are in the way.

        4. Use as a low-maintenance border. Long driveway or sidewalk borders can be taxing to maintain. Use a single variety of ornamental grass to fill the length of the bed instead of mixed perennials and annuals for an easy-care (and handsome-looking) solution. Grass: Mexican feather grass (Nassella tenuissima)Need to know: Mexican feather grass is extremely drought-tolerant and hardy in zones 6 to 10, but is identified as a highly invasive species in California and Oregon. Mexican feather grass reseeds, so it may need to be pulled out in places you don’t want it to spread. If you live in California, the University of California Master Gardener Program recommends as alternatives California native blue grama grass (Bouteloua gracilis ‘Blonde Ambition’), California native prairie dropseed (Sporobolus airoides), Mexican deer grass (Muhlenbergia dubia) or pink muhly grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris, especially ‘White Cloud’).

        Cost: Fence Consultants advises to anticipate a cost of $20 to $60 per linear foot, depending on the wood type and the intricacy of the fence. With some contractors this will include one gate. But, as with many projects, regional pricing will vary, as wood types and availability change.If you’re tackling the project on your own, the cost will largely be decided by the wood you choose. The additional materials for a basic fence, like concrete and fasteners, are relatively minimal.Typical project length: Building the fence usually takes three days (one to set the posts, one for the concrete to settle and one to add the rails), but if you are going with a contractor, anticipate potential project wait times, especially during the busy season for fencing (spring and summer).Shown: A 4-foot horizontal fence with rails embedded into the posts

        Something like this for the exterior may be more in line with our aesthetic vs. white picket.

        Like grasses and wood fence - a "ranch-like" look.
