One of the things I was grateful for with this home was the wrap around fence and hedge. We had an electric gate and although we replaced the driver a couple of times, it works very well to keep the dogs in and unwanted cars out. Being in a neighborhood where all the lots are large and neighbors scattered, I felt safer being surrounded by this gate. The hedge is schefflera and for years we needed to water it, but now it thrives without irrigation. It’s a very full and thick hedge, and it ads beauty and greenery to our large lawn.
