Bored Panda has put together this list of fantastic fences to inspire you, dear neighbours, to be even better. Have a fence but no neighbour on the other side?

Vote on your favourite, or upload pictures of your own fencing. (h/t)

Oh I so love this!! All these Sedums of various species growing in squarish angular boxes - a stark contrast between the organic living things and the non-living wooden boxes housing them
