Howdy ...

I'm thinking of fencing in an area for Jenny to roam around in. It might look something like this ...



Except squash it so that it would be a partial area ..... say the length of the back of a ranch house using the house and corners for one length of the fence. It could be about 20 'six foot male' paces long and about 5 'six foot male paces' in width. What do you think .... and how tall do you think it should be?

Anybody with pictures and/or ideas?

Regards ....

I like the way that fence looks. At the present time we have two houses, one in Connecticut and one (live in) in North Carolina. We had two Labs in Connecticut and that arrangement worked well.

For here (NC) I was thinking of a design that would be more solid, lower and smaller in square feet. It might even be brick designed to look like an English style surrounded garden with plants on the side minus the hound. Expense, however, might reduce my options to solid lattice style wood.

Found one that looks like what I'm thinking of ..... It would parallel the back of the ranch house maybe about 10 paces wide
and length as long as the brick ranch.

Sometimes I'm such a jerk I scare myself. Here I am searching all over the Internet to find a picture I could
show you reflecting my fence idea. Then the dawn comes in the middle of the day! DUH! Go outside and
snap a couple of pictures in place of a thousand words.



OK ... the bottom is a portion of the carport while the top is the back of the house including the porch.
Imagine the wall (like in the carport) creating a (higher) corridor
along the back of the house about ten feet out.
Exit the porch to a gate getting the human
slaves outside of the walled area while
at the same time Jenny has freedom of
egress and ingress within the walled area
and the porch. Now add some plants and
shrubs along the top and on the outside of the wall.

Hmm ... I wonder how much?
