A recent commenter (Kate) asked if American houses don't have front fences. The comment got me thinking about the various places I have lived, in particular about where I live now. In South Park there is a great variation of the presence or absence of fences, and where their are fences the style can be very different. So I present some photos of fences for your viewing pleasure. Oh hush, a grrl can dream.
There are a lot of different example of wrought iron fences in this neighborhood which I just love. The gates can look very different as well.
There are examples of the traditional white picket fence as well.
A mix of concrete and iron hints to a gothic past for some of the homes.
This one reminds me of a professor I had who always said "the devil is in the details".
