Designer Peggy Krapf dubs this double-picket style "the critter fence" because it is meant to keep bunnies at bay though they still seem to squeeze through.
An Extension of the Home
Working closely with landscape designer Peggy Krapf, owner of Heart's Ease Landscape & Garden Design in Toano, Virginia, the couple aimed to make the shed visible from the driveway while maximizing the planting area.
Prior to the structure's arrival, they had a 9½- x 9½-foot concrete pad poured. "Within a half hour of delivery, the dovecote cupola was attached and the delivery driver was off on his way," marvels Lynne. Besides customizing several features, the Walkers opted to paint the structure themselves to match their home's exterior. They also added electricity and plumbing to accommodate a sink. Then they finished the structure with shutters, window boxes, and carriage lights.
