This is a job that i had done a couple of years back.Had already built a fence around their vegetable garden it turned out nice so when this fence was rotting they called me first to see if i could fix it for them.It was only 3 years old and 1/2 of the fence was completely gone.The right side of that yard stayed wet due to the sprinklers and shady all day long.(I guess that is the reason it rotted so quick).They wanted the new part built out of Pressure treated pine.I told them that it was hard to make it look the same but I think that it turned out pretty good I always wish that i had done something different somewhere along the line.I guess that is all part of learning

Great stuff, mon ami. Really nice design. I’m assuming that you made it formerly from untreated pine?
