Our new fence after ivy is removed part 2

Here is our new redwood fence along the alley. Now the ten foot tall and eight foot wide ivy is gone.
Above is the space where the old tottering falling down fence was, and with the ivy gone. That took heavy machinery to remove.
Above is the beginning of building our new fence.
Above to the right is the heavy duty hand made gate. The contractor built it on our patio and I saw him build it.
We are happy to have this much progress.
Now we need to consider what to do with our huge back yard, to have a new sliding glass patio door installed, and to have some sort of shade for part of the patio. Perhaps a canvas awning over the patio doors and a table with an umbrella, or a roof of some kind that will extend over half the patio.
Step one and a big one is the fence is installed, hurray.

Very Nice !
Just curious did they treat the area where the ivy was growing to keep it from coming back?
Enjoy the weekend.

Terra,

You might want to consider a sun sail. They are like giant sails made of canvas you can stretch over parts of your yard where you want a bit of shade. We will be installing ours soon. We picked it up at Costco, 13 by 13 foot for only $20.00.

Love your garden and the redwood fence is truly beautiful. I love it!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Oh Terra, you removed all the ivy! It looks so nice, and I can't wait to see what you have planned next. The fencing is very nice. That ivy is a handful, isn't it? I remember well pulling it out from my back yard at our old house.

Happy Easter, my sweet friend.

love, ~Sheri

Wow that was one great big project. Roundup on the new sprouts might be the ticket to stop regrowth! It looks really good:)
