How it used to look

On the left is how it looks now, on the right is how it used to look. You may think it’s not an improvement, but if you look closely, on the blown-up version of the left, you can see a new lattice there.

When we moved in, the back yard had an awning, with lots of ferns and other low sun plants. Most of what we want to grow wants full sun, so we pulled out the awning, and we really need to replace the fence, but we haven’t gotten there yet. So this is forward enough that hopefully we can keep control of the decorative peas and morning glories that we want to plant there to obscure the fence, until we can get in to clean up the fence, and is set far enough forward that we can build the fence.

The wood is Massaranduba, the top rail is attached with Sipo floating tenons (The Domino, is there anything it can’t do?), and the wires below that are multistrand secured at each end with u-clamps.
