We spotted this adorable stump fence while out taking advantage of the recent Chicago weather. It's an earthy change of pace from the standard KEEP OFF THE GRASS posts and drooping chains.
But does it work as well...?
Probably not. At its highest point, this stumpy fence stands only about seven inches tall. Most every person or dog could easily scale it to romp freely in the parkway.
Yet we still like it because it's both messy and orderly. The placement of the stumps isn't perfect but the haphazard angles fit right in with the overgrown plant life.
In the very least, it provides a visual border (or barricade) which, because it's so pretty, we graciously honored.
