It was patched with chicken wire and chain link, I'm guessing to stop a dog from burrowing underneath it.
So in, oh, eleven thousand spots someone had attached the chain link with twisted bits of wire wrapped around screws in the fence.
This is a stupid way to secure a fence.
So I had to climb behind the shrubs (like the rhododendron) that had been planted *right next to the fence* and find all the places it was attached and untwist the wire so it would release. I had this brilliant idea to cover this fence in bamboo screens to provide more privacy. I bought one section and labored to squeeze it past the rhododendron and the bamboo.
Isn't it so private now? I'm going to try adding a second layer of bamboo to see if that helps, but I'm not very confident it will. WHY CAN NOTHING BE EASY?
