Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 11 Letnbrtdfe HertJd November W3 Privacy fencing changes outlook of home Herald- Family Make do with what already exists Simple seclusion One way of adding a private spot to a yard is with the use of a tool as shown here. Mr. and Mrs. Getkate Are Celebrating their 40th Anniversary November 30th. There will be an OPEN HOUSE At the Home of Mr. and Mrs. Derk Getkate 1012 28th Street South from 7-00 til 10 p.m No Gifts by Request Please By PETER TONGE Christian Sctace Mealier Mats. your This it the advice Alex Cvijanovic of Architects Collaborative has for the homeowner with an urge to sell out and find a more satisfying house. Do says the architect who travels the world in pur- suit of his at the very least you will delay mak- ing the Very possibly you will not sell at all. You he a lot with what you've right now. Privacy he points is a particularly useful tool to effect change. Its judicious use can so alter the character and atmosphere of a home that the desire for something'new and different is satisfied. Mr. Cvijanovic has found from experience that the value of a home with a yard made private by fenc- ing or other forms of construc- generally to the amount of money invested. A few hundred dollars can be parlayed into better than a thousand easily this way Stockade and similar fenc- ing does two things that today are being considered increasingly important It af- fords privacy and defines indicating clearly that an area of open space belongs to a particular household and ought to be respected. The U S Department of Housing and Urban Development even terms this type of enclosed area as A small yard may be fully enclosed with privacy a larger one only in those areas where more or less total privacy is desirable. Open fencing will effectively define the rest of the area If you're planning to enlarge swear it's the only machine I'll ever That's why I chose the Bernina in the first place it's the only machine I'll ever HAVE to I investigated and tried all makes and models of sewing machines and -1 bought a Bernina the one-in-a-lifetime machine.

A less expensive but very effective approach says Mr. is the use a tool shed in conjunction with fencing to form a private patio. Place the shed a suitable distance away and join it to the house down one side with privacy Mr. Cvi- janovic suggests. Add overhead beams and a few trailing vines and the ar- borhke effect will be com- plete Increasingly people are making use of privacy fen- cing. Most of them come in just one question in mind- How to make their or part of a New England manufacturer of stockade fencing notes. want to be able to barbecue and sunbathe out of sight of neighbors and passersby Some people do not mind relaxing out on the front but the the dealer notes he are running 40 percent ahead of last year. Cyril L. publisher of Fence Industry magazine says the industry is its with success to the extent that he is having dif- ficulty getting advertising. a manufacturer has orders booked right through next he's in no hurry to Mr. Ellison ex- plains. The need for more security in recent years has pushed the sales of several types of fen- cing. But beautification and the demands for privacy are impelling too. Fre- quently security and privacy are provided by the same pan- el type fence. There also has been a noticeable increase in the height of most fences. A few years ago four feet and five feet privacy fences were con- sidered adequate peo- ple want six even eight foot says Mr. Ellison. He reports that the industry took three years ago But which fence is right for The choice can bewilder a novice. Recognizing today's increasing emphasis on out- door one New England manufacturer now different of otdar fencing. Then there are the growing ranges of steel and aluminum fences too. as with most other you can start with the adage get what you pay industry spokesmen advise. Good fencing isn't cheap. But it should last for several decades. Take the long popular stockade currently averaging more than for an eight foot section six feet high Leading manufacturers- guarantee it for 30 years. Even says William sales manager for Walpole the poles should need In other words a good fence is a sound long term investment. Less expensive lines are generally from out- lets where fencing is a relatively minor sales item. Some major manufacturers have sales on seconds too. The most widely sold of privacy particularly in the north eastern United is the stockade type. This has partly rounded closely spaced. These can be smooth for more rustic flavor left with the bark on. A more contemporary style of this type of fence includes a capping strip along the top There are other versions of the stockade including a woven form which can be attached say an ex- isting chain link or other support In effect this is a fancy offshoot of the old snow fence. But it is much more attractive and with no spacing between pickets. Other contemporary designs are basketweave available in California redwood and and what is sometimes termed a shadowbox fence vertical boards placed alternately on each side of the cross pieces. This type allows air to cir- culate freely through while at the same time providing relative privacy. Says one manufacturer of this plays tricks with light and shadows and changes moods with the time of day For rugged durability the Stockade popular One of the most widely used privacy particularly in the northeastern United is the stockade type shown. From garbage to garden one-inch thick board fence is best. No climbing child will snap the top off one of these. A similar board design is available in aluminum. Chain link in which brightly colored aluminum strips Vene- tian blind are provides yet another type of privacy fence. Perhaps the most inexpen- sive privacy fence of all can be made by attaching woven reeds from some landscape gardening to an existing chain link This seldom retains its attractive appearance for longer than three or four and for nowhere near that length of time if children are around. Whatever the style of insist on good posts. In the United States only locust and redwood have established rot resistance records. Set the posts at least three feet into the ground for a six-feet high fence. The fence that leans over after a few years loses all its attractive qualities One final piece of Don't enclose yourself in a box Vary the heights and types of fencing. Obviously the highest sections will be used where most privacy is desired. But let the fence tail off to around three or four feet where distance lends a degree of privacy And where there is a a post-and-rail fence is the obvious choice.
