Fences and hedges denote boundaries and give order to a free-form landscape. A rustic, gap-toothed fence separates Betsy’s yard from the front walk and continues down the sides. “I wanted a fence that was loose and weathered and allowed flowers to poke through,” she says. In winter, the fence lends structure and helps camouflage bare spots.
