When I think fence, I also think wall. Both stop things from coming in or going out without complete control or force. The only difference, is you can’t see through a wall. For those that say you can’t see through privacy fences, yes you can. There is always a crack and you can always stand on a ladder.
I’ve heard this a lot too, “It all depends, are you trying keep someone out or keep someone in.”
I can see this working for or against someone.
A person putting up a fence is someone protecting themself while keeping an eye on whats going on around them and has complete control of who walks in and who walks out. You can control the risks you take.
A person putting up a wall is doing just that. No one can get in an no one can get out. You’re hiding your beauty, talents, and skills. You are also limiting yourself and avoiding risks.
