    ask your neighbor if they care if you painted something on it, or installed hangers for hanging baskets or pots;

    Hi Susan. You could add a trellis and plant vines going up. If you don't already make a flower bed and use stones as a border.

    K If it is exactly on the line, then the other side is your s to paint, just call your code guy at city hall. I did.

    plant Leyland Cypress. They’ll make a living fence 6-7ft tall. Just make sure you keep them well watered when first planted, at least the first 10 days.

    I have never seen the other side of our fence that separates us from our neighbors on the east side, so I doubt if I would ever know what they do. We all have 6 1/2' - 7' fences. But our neighbor on the west has taken it upon himself to keep the small space on our side of his fence neat and the grass trimmed. I would certainly ask that neighbor's permission if I did anything to the fence. I have plans to paint giant flowers on the fence, but I could also use plant hooks that you place in the soil and then hang hummingbird feeders, hanging baskets, and solar lights. Good neighbors honor good fences. 😇💖
