    Frugal Privacy Fence

    It's time to tend our yards and gardens again. For those thinking of larger ticket items, are you looking at more frugal alternatives?

    Fencing is one that can be expensive but are there ways to get some privacy without the big price tag?

    We are replacing our back fence this summer. My guys will do the work themselves instead of hiring someone else to do the work so we will save on labor and we will split the cost of the wood with the neighbor behind us.

    I got some blackberry starts from a colleague at work who was getting rid of them.  Between those and the red raspberries it's growing into a reasonable hedge (it also deters teenagers from crossing the lawn because the blackberries have nice big thorns)
