Over the last few years I have struggled with how to proceed. I always wanted to use plantings to demarcate the end of the garden and the beginning of the back yard. However, the grasses, including the clumping bamboo, never fully created a "fence line." I also didn't want to extend the existing fence style in this direction - towards the house and dinning room window.
More recently I considered a Yotsume-Gaki style fence.
My plan was simple - install 5 4x4s, cut 6 2x4s into rails, attach 30 2x2 pickets.
I spent one day with the posts and had them aligned and inserted by the end of the day.
The second day, today, I spent cutting rails and attaching them to the posts.
I then cut the tops off the posts to keep the height of all the posts below the window of the house.
Next step, stain the posts and rails. I will then spend time during the next week notching the pickets, staining them, and attaching them to the rails. I am hopeful I can get this all done in the next two weeks before it starts to get too cold.
