    I'm currently contemplating replacing my old fence with a new closeboard fence.

    I'm looking at 4' height, with 1' trellis on top. All bog standard.

    But the other day I had the mad thought of ditching the trellis, and instead have every other slat 5' tall instead.

    Am I crazy?


    Btw, I haven't run this past SWMBO yet, so please don't tell her :censored:

    Well that's a vote against!
    Any chance of a photo so I can visualise what it looks likes. I just cannot find anything on Google!

    I've seen every other slat done and it looks fine.

    Thanks for the 'for' vote, but I don't think that argument is going to swing SWMBO :LOL:

    Never mind, thanks anyway!

    I should have mentioned that this is in the back garden - so I'm allowed up to 2m (6'6'')
