New Fence Makes Good Neighbors!

Did I ever mention that I live next door to a detective that has cameras all around his house?  This can definitely be a good thing in a neighborhood.  But once I installed the new patio extension, I was on the camera every time I sat on it!  Yes, the camera in their backyard is point directly towards my back yard!  Yikes!

Well last Saturday, my babe put an end to that!  He had an 8ft privacy fence installed!  Here's how it went:

Bye! Bye!


I love the new fence!! Those are solars lights on the fence.  They cast a beautiful glow at night! I can now sunbath, be naked (jk!!) or do whatever I want without peeking neighbors! Especially since there is a field behind me!

Today I ordered this rug from Ballards Design.

I'll post pics once it arrives!  Happy Summer!

I can only imagine how thrilled you must be with your new fence. I love the privacy of my backyard, and that would be very upsetting to me.
What a nice hubby, you have your private sanctuary back again. That's
great! It looks very nice too, neat they put the solar lights on it.
Blessings, Nellie

Well done it looks great! The lights are a perfect touch they really break up the wood and I bet they look pretty at night time :)

Thanks everyone for the kind remarks! I had the solar lights on the old fence, just purchased a few more at BIG LOTS ($6 for 2!) and my babe, not husband, yet ;) put them back on! I do love it and my babe is a JEWEL!!!

I love your space with the concrete and the rocks. and I can totally see being out here all the time now. enjoy your new private space.

Wow! Well, I can see I'm going to love your blog just from it's name, that made me laugh out loud and nod my head! I LOVE what you did with your backyard and that privacy fence just is like gravy on top of mashed potatoes made with real old-fashioned cream and lots of butter, YUM! The solar lights are an utter stroke of genius. I love the pattern and texture they added to the fence during the day, bet they're absolutely awesome goregous at night when they shine their subtle light. Only goes to show that no matter how small in square footage one's own particular patch of Heaven may be, we can always improve upon it!

oh boy, now you have a new wall to put lots of stuff on ! :)
It looks great and I know you will enjoy it.

Pamela said...

Loving the new fence and it would have been a must as well! I can not believe he would have a camera on your yard. You will love your Ballard rug. I have the black rectangle version in our dining room. It is four years old and still looks good as the day it arrived. Where did you get your solar lights from? Thanx for partying at THT!

Unknown said...

Solar lights from Big Lots! Set of 2 for only $6! Thanks for posting!!

anu said...

Love the solar lights and the rocks at the base of the fence. What a lovely outdoor space!

Mrs. Handyverger said...

I love the solar lights! Big Lots, huh? I wonder if my Big Lots has any... :)

(It would totally freak me out if I had a neighbor that had a camera trained on any part of my property - creepy!)

Looks like such a nice and relaxing place! I love your solar lights, bet it does look wonderful at night.
So happy to have you share at AMAZE ME MONDAY, thanks so much!

Lauren said...

I am featuring your new fence on my blog today. It looks so peaceful in your yard. I am jealous. Thanks for linking it up. I hope to see you tomorrow for another link party.


Brandi said...

Your backyard looks great. I love all the updates you made. The lights on the fence was a great idea.

Patty Rumaker said...

I love the lights on the fence, I bet that is lovely at night. A higher fence along with an umbrella is a great way to increase privacy.
Nice, Patty

Kathy said...

Wow, I can understand wanting to protect the property, but my goodness - you need to be able to sit in your backyard without fear of being watched all the time - great solution - I do believe good fences do make for good neighbors! Beautifully done and the lights are a wonderful addition! I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
