We are lucky enough to have good neighbors (of course we do, it's the greates cul-de-sac ever) and now, a good fence. Our fence has been there since the house was built around 25 years ago. I am amazed it has held up as long as it has. We have had a lot of wind this winter and the fence finally gave in. About 3 of the posts were completely rotted out and 1 was cracked at the bottom. With much help from the Supon family and our family, the fence is as good as new.
