Let me tell you about our new project!
With the purchase of the lambs and finding out to our delight that they co-habitate well with our Pembroke Welsh Corgi Dogs, we have decided to build a new paddock. We chose a 1/4 acre of land that borders both the horse back pasture fence as well as the woods on one side. The dogs will keep any predators at bey from the woods, so I am not worried about that. I was insistent though that the front of the fence be eye pleasing. We priced many different fencing options for this area and several were going to cost well over a thousand dollars and that was just for the front!
What we have decided on is a traditional picket fence, 4 feet tall, painted black and by using a black iron arbor and gate, it should give us the picturesque view we are looking for. The arbor cannot obviously be bare, so I have chosen the Eden climbing rose.
Here is the description of the Eden rose: "Armloads of Pastel-Hued Blooms All Summer! The charm of Old English Roses plus the profuse flowering habit of modern Roses!"
