More About This Book

Overview

Do you know the difference among a boundary, privacy, and security fence? Or what a Good Neighbor fence is? Or a dry stonewall? You might know about living hedges but what about snow fences? Adding a wall or fence to your property can be a major decision. It requires good design and good thinking to identify the best style , design, and material to meet your needs. Originally, fences and walls were constructed primarily for protection. Today, they are built for privacy, security, as well as protection from noise and headlights. This new book helps you select the wall or fence that suits your property and your fancy! A fence can be a decoration (think of those cute upright white pickets), hide an ugly view (such as trash cans or a/c units), block the sound of passing vehicles, enclose the swimming pool, or create a new outdoor room. Sometimes used as a backdrop for the garden, framing views, creating vistas, and providing perspective, you want a wall or fence to blend into the background; sometimes you want it to make a statement. Explore a wide range of styles and designs, in a variety of materials and quality grades. Hundreds of examples are shown in 316 full color photos, offering a comprehensive reference for homeowners, architects, landscapers, and builders.

    Don't Fence Me In

    My wife wanted a white picket fence. I wanted something somewhat more unique. We were totally confused when we went to look at fences --there were so many different varieties. So we went to Barnes & Noble to do some research and make an informed decision together! Rooney's book was a great help -- and incidentally good fun to read. Her descriptions and the lovely photos helped us decide to install a privacy fence -- to give us that special intimate place where we could relax after a long day. As Rooney points out, as housing lots become smaller and our neighborhoods become more crowded, we still like that feeling of privacy when we grill our supper or have friends in for a nice bottle of white wine. The book is so pretty and the discussion so good that I gave a copy to each of my kids.
