The Proof Is in The Picket.
Yes! You want a picket fence? You got it! Chain link fence you say? Sure thing. Custom Cedar? Wrought Iron? Stone wall? Retaining wall? Barbed Wire? No prob. Of course, no one really needs a barbed wire fence, since the days they were used as telephones; barbed-wire phones you say? yes, barbed wire fences doubled as phone lines. Anyhow, that was then, this is now.
The “now” means that whatever sort of fence you can envision, you can have. The professional tradesmen, skilled in fencing and, of course, the classic American patio, is skilled in everything related to the mighty backyard. You name it, it can be fashioned for you. Gateways; retaining walls; decorative stamped concrete masterpieces; arbors; pergolas, etc.
Enough of that however. Back to the venerable patio. Fencing and patios go hand in hand and one compliments the other. It’s just the way it is. The finest backyard patios are incomplete without privacy fencing, and when the patio is crafted to your exact specifications, with the finest building materials possible, your simple backyard has been transformed into a staggeringly beautiful extension of your humble home.
Whether the patio design is physically attached to your home, or floats freely in your yard, surrounded by meticulously manicured landscaping, the quintessential and uniquely American patio is to be striven for. It’s what life is all about. The fruits of your labor take the form of a private staging area for living life to its fullest. And you want one. Keep in mind that this expertise is a true art form, and those who practice it are fully capable of creating for you or crafting your own ideas. Again, it’s how the universe operates.
There is, however, an age-old axiom that goes like this: “Location, location, location.” and this means that if you are lucky enough to live in Dallas Texas, or even nearby, the patio builders are such that they cannot be defined. The mysterious atmosphere that exists only in Texas is world renowned, and so are the people. Who knows why? Once more, it’s just the way things are. We all accept the Lone Star State as being bigger and better.
This notion applies to the craftsman too. For some reason, that patio you commissioned turned out on the far side of “better than you expected” and you couldn’t be happier. Since the patio turned out so well, why not go for that gorgeous cedar perimeter fence? Life on Earth is fleeting, patio living is next level, particularly if you have that stone BBQ built right in. Man O’ Man! BBQ, what more could a life-form ask for?
Take another look at your back yard. Use a critical eye. Think of what your neighbors will say. You’ve been envious of others, it’s high time others were envious of you. And remember, “Envy” is not a mortal sin, it was written by a monk; Evagrius Ponticus; look it up and go for it.
