Product Description

Product Description

Whether it is for aesthetics, security, or simple privacy, no project is more important to a landscape than its vertical boundary structures—the fences, walls, screens, and retaining wall terraces. This book includes classic favorites, like picket fences and panel fences, but also includes interesting regional variations, like Virginia split rail fences and dry-fit stone garden walls. Also included here are the latest materials, such as new variations on PVC vinyl and polymer-coated, wrought-iron look-alikes. And special attention is given to decorative boundary walls for patios—the latest trend in today’s cutting-edge landscape architecture. Add in major hardscape retaining wall terraces, and even an invisible electronic dog-fence project, and you have the most complete and modern book on fences and garden walls available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me build a chainlink fence 4 Oct 2011
By T. MORROW - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I built a little galvanized steel chainlink fence to enclose my small backyard using this book. I could've used a bit more detail on certain steps, like installing tension wire or attaching the stretched fence fabric to the tension bands (both required a little more muscle power than I thought they would), but, overall, this book got the job done. I built the exact size chainlink fence specified in the book (48" high with 2 3/8" diameter terminal posts and 1 5/8" line posts) and hand-dug the post holes. I also installed a drive gate and a walk gate. Measuring the gate posts exactly to fit the gates were the biggest challenge, since you are also simultaneously plumbing the posts. The tip to use a 2x4 spacer was crucial. I saved over a thousand dollars doing this project myself and have next to zero experience, as a brand new homeowner. Next project: pouring footers for a short garden wall, also using this book! Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful reference 23 Jan 2014
By Steven Boone - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The overview & ideas expressed inside are useful.

After looking through the pages and reading a bit, I would rate this book at four stars. It is a great overview with nice photos, however if your looking for details or engineering type guidelines for your project you'll need additional resources. If you have a backyard project and you're not sure where to start, this book can give you some great ideas and instructions.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent introduction 24 Jan 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really bought this book to learn how to put up chain link fencing. If that is your purpose, don't buy it. It is a primer on basic fencing with essentially an introduction to what is available and some basic planning and fencing tchniques. But almost nothing on the details of planning and erecting a standard chain link fence.
