It was a good call.
I don’t know what color the fence will be. I don’t plan to paint or stain it until the weathered grey demands it. Still the red arbor will make a solid contrast against the bare cedar fence.
Also, the red will anchor the lot to our house, as will the fence actually anchor to it. Apparently, the different elevations have made the lot seem to not belong to us. That chapter is about to close.
