Six-foot wooden fence, 300 feet long behind our property and two lots to the south, three more to the north. Fence was installed by the owner of the property on the other side of the fence. His claim was that it was situated two feet inside his property line. Over time, my trees grew to enclose parts of the fence, which is neither here nor there.
About a month ago, I noted a survey team working along the neighbor’s very long property line. A few days later my next-door neighbor asked me if I had noted the placement of the stakes and flags indicating the boundary between our property and the property on the other side of the fence. I had not, so I went to take a look. The entire fence is inside our property, not on that of the erector of said fence. My neighbor and I agreed that since it is our fence, and old, and ugly, and disintegrating it should go.
BBBH was drinking her first cuppa yesterday morning. She glanced out the window looking to the west. "The fence is gone!" I went to check it out. It is gone, posts and all. There were a few pickets sticking in my trees here and there, which I broke off. Opened up quite a vista. Well, if the full view of the IU Health Hospital maintenance facility, and a pretty good view of Pioneer’s research facility is a vista.
The fence in background, now gone.
