Keeping others out – and the dog in!

Sometimes things just need a finishing touch. This Cornish slate wall was hidden under thick ivy, which we cleared. No-one knows why the block section was there… Perhaps an old gateway which was blocked up?
We then constructed a feather-edge fence to match and join up the 2 side fences, which were at completely different heights; as is the way with Cornish gardens! Much more privacy, and no more escaping pets.
