White Picket Fence
For some reason I was thinking about the fictional, oft romanticized image of the white picket fence today. Why is this such a peaceful thing? All I see is hard work and money. Not only do they cost a lot, but you have to maintain them. If it's wood, you'll have to occasionally scrape and repaint (more money). Repairs will be needed as time goes by. If it's synthetic, you'll have to wash it ... especially if you live in a climate prone to growing moss and/or mold. The north side is the worse by far. I guess this could happen with wood too.
