Here in Carrboro, NC, we have lots of creative and artistic folks around that aren't afraid to experiment with alternative building products. Check out these two unique fences.
I'm currently investigating green options for a fence but they are hard to come by. I check Freecycle for decks that are to be demoed, have considered using pallets, and the cost of Trex/synthetic lumber is seemingly cost prohibitive.
The owner of this great fence wasn't home but I'm guessing the panels are all recycled. Regardless, it's a beautiful and creative fence.
This fence lives at a local cafe/garden/hangout called Johnny's.
