A virtual pot of sweetly scented primroses to all of you who shared your thoughts on and images of garden walls and fences for this month’s Garden Bloggers’ Design Workshop. Here are the posts…

Garden Bloggers’ Design Workshop – Walls and Fences Revisited (Nan at Gardening Gone Wild): Kick-off post for this month’s topic.

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors (Carolyn Gail at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago): Fencing in her front yard may not have been Carolyn’s original design choice, but she made the best of that situation, and of the fences in other parts of her garden as well.

Hegemony (Gail at Clay and Limestone): Last fall, Gail reported on the mildly hostile takeover of the kingdom of Clay and Limestonia by the power known as Hedge. In the follow-up plea, Mr. I – Tear Down This Hedge, she contemplates some of her options for replacing Hedge.

The Tale of the Fox and the Squirrel (MMD at Mr. McGregor’s Daughter): Chain-link may not be the most attractive option for garden fencing, but it does offer one advantage over solid fencing: more wildlife-watching options for the residents of Squirrelhaven.

Garden Walls and Fences (Cameron at Defining Your Home): Cameron shares the thought process behind her choice of fence to enclose her front-yard cottage garden.

Rocks Falling into Place (bloominrs at Bloomin Rs): Give a gardener rocks, and with some ingenuity, she’ll find a way to make good use of them. Bloominrs built some splendid steps and low stone walls (with help from DH) to create terraced beds, and she also crafted a superb sitting wall with a slab of flagstone.

GGW: Garden Bloggers’ Design Workshop – Walls and Fences Revisited (Heather at Heather’s Garden): Heather shows and tells about the two main fence/wall features in her garden, with bonus images from other gardens she’s visited.

Garden Bloggers Design Workshop Walls and Fences (Frances at Fairegarden): In a post written for the original GBDW on this subject, Frances takes us on a tour of the walls and fences that form such an integral part of Fairegarden.

If you’re looking for even more ideas and inspiration, you can find the original GBDW post here.

Nancy J. Ondra
Nan gardens on 4 acres in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In the firm belief that every garden ought to have a pretentious-sounding (or at least pretentious-looking) name, she refers to her home grounds as "Hayefield." There, she experiments with a wide variety of plants and planting styles, from cottage gardens and color-based borders to managed meadows, naturalistic plantings, and veggies--all under the watchful eyes of her two pet alpacas, Daniel and Duncan.

I left this comment on the announcement post yesterday, but I guess not in time:

I know I’m a little late to the party (I started writing the post on the 7th, but got distracted), but hope I got this to you in time to be included.

Sorry about that, Heather. I prepare the post the day before, so I didn’t see your comment until this morning. I’ve added you the the list above. Thanks!
