Fence passed inspection- yay

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 9:10 pm

So, as we said back in July, a pool/pond needs a city permit, just for the fence/enclosure for safety reasons.  Our summer was taken up reconstructing the fence according to the bylaw: we drilled holes, acquired posts, poured concrete, attached wire and rails, built gates… all for the successful inspection we received.  Compare these photos to the beginning ones back in July.


Notice also the green grass inside the fence in the photo above that shows the house.  That took an enormous amount of fussy landscaping to turn a mess (see some of the July pics)into a relatively evenly sloped and grassy field for the dogs to run in. Some more seeding needed to bulk up the bare spots in the spring.  Some pre-seeding pictures below.
