It's getting close to ski season, but why keep the skis on the slopes when you can have them in your yard? This ski fence is the creation of Ben Kullman who spent several years out West after graduating from college. It was during his last year in Colorado that Kullman decided to bring some of ski life back to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio - inspired by the popular ski fences in Colorado, Kullman begun collecting discarded skis to make his own fence.
All the skis were collected from thrift stores, dumpsters and ski shops for free. Kullman’s own fence is comprised of about 75 pairs of skis.
The skis were screwed to a frame of 2-by-4s and mounted to the back of the garage. In addition to the ski fence Kullman made a flowerbed out of a kayak, and flowerpots made from ski boots. Future garden plans include snowboard benches and Adirondack style chairs made of skis.
