Simple Elegant Fence

I am always on the quest for the right type of fence – not too modern – or complex – or fussy – or suburban – and not kitschy country. It is hard trying to plan for a fence that is practical but doesent block the view – decorative but not distracting – clean but not too modern…

I love the proportions of the fence below – the post have a very subtle decorative effect that hints at a finial – and I love how thick and solid all the rails look. Also I love that this fence employs a dense grid web to make it critter proof – but the horizontal rail capping makes it look far more decorative and intended.
