How to get a FREE cedar fence

Apparently its not hard at all. All you have to do is remove some old leaning pine trees from the back corner of your property. Then pile up loads of dead branches, and dump all your compost right on the ground. Don't ever chop down the weeds either. Let them get as tall as you are and you are bound to get your free fence!

Ok honestly I do feel a little bad about letting the weeds go. They look atrocious and will spread like a nightmare. I have lots of excuses but they are admittedly pretty lame. I love the fence. :)

I do wonder about the timing.. This same neighbor walks the neighborhood everyday. My backyard has been the same for about a year. The privacy fence has only come up since the front yard garden was put in. I think he just hates ME more than my yard. He will leave the sidewalk and walk in the street to avoid me, and won't even say hi back when my 3yo waves and says hi.


  1. Way to keep a positive attitude in the face of adversity (aka stupid people)!!

  2. Ooh.. i've got a neighbor like that (& a few weeks on our fence, lol)... maybe i'll get a new fence too! ;)

  3. Meant to say "weeds", not "weeks"....
