My Diary For 2023

Every year I write a blog post about which diary system or set up I am going to use for the following twelve months. In recent years, I have moved away from a Filofax (I trialled something earlier this year - more of that in a minute) and fallen in love with the Hobonichi printed diaries. For the last two years I have used a Hobonichi Weeks as my personal planner and I won't be deviating from that this year. I have tried a Hobonichi Techo A6 a couple of times but have never managed to feel comfortable with it size-wise.  I have always lusted after the Hobonichi Cousin A5 as a main work planner so, this year, I have bitten the bullet at launch time and invested in my very first one. Hobonichi Weeks The Hobonichi Weeks is a slim diary with a yearly, monthly and weekly layout. The main section is a "week to view with notes" and there are an additional 70 note pages at the back.

Beautiful Property Fences

If you would like to add beautiful property fencing to your yard but don't know where to start, you are not alone. Many people would like to install a fence in their yard but don't know what option they should choose to reach the outcome they want. This guide explains the steps you can take to choose a fence that makes your property stand out in a positive way. 

As you move forward, you can select a parameter fence in a colour that matches the rest of your home. Installing a privacy fence is another option from which you can choose. Review the rest of the information to learn about other fences worth considering, and you won't have trouble making your decision. 

Chain-Link Fencing

The chain link fence is the first option you are going to explore while deciding what path you should take. This option comes with a simple design that won't enhance the visual appeal of your property. Although it does not look pretty, a chain link fence is cheap and durable enough to do its job without issues. A lot of people use this type of fence in their backyard so that their children can’t leave the property and endanger themselves. 

Others use chain-link fences as a parameter fence that goes around their entire yard to keep unwanted guests at bay. Some people move forward without first measuring their yard. If you want to avoid unneeded complications, make sure you know how much fencing you need before spending your money. 

Pool Fencing

If you own a pool and don't want anyone to get hurt, having a pool fence is a vital element you can't afford to overlook. You can have peace of mind and put your worries to rest when you have a quality fence around your pool. The type of fence you choose does not matter as long as it's sturdy enough to keep children from entering the water without supervision. Some people opt for a simple chain-link fence to reach their goals, and you can do the same. 

Looking for pool fences that enhance the look of your pool and yard is another option you should consider. No matter the type of fence you choose, make sure it's so tall that children can't climb over it. Keeping your needs and goals at the front of your mind allows you to choose a fence that looks great and keeps everyone out of harm's way. 

Garden Fencing

Protecting your garden is important if you don't want wildlife to ruin it, destroying everything for which you have worked. People will often use the first fence they discover when looking for smart ways to keep deer, rabbits and other animals at bay. 

But not getting a fence that meets your needs gives wildlife a perfect opportunity to sneak past your defenses. Rabbits can squeeze into small spaces when they are determined to get food, so make sure your mesh openings are smaller than 1 inch in width. A fence that is at least 10 feet high is what you want when your mission is to keep deer at bay. 

Final Thoughts

Increased safety and a beautiful property are what you can expect if you install a fence that meets your needs. No matter if you want a pool fence or something to keep animals out of your garden, the information you have discovered can make things much easier. 

Choosing a fence will be simpler than you once thought possible when you keep these tips on hand. When you buy a fence and see what it can do for your property, you will be proud of yourself. Your fence will grab attention and let you achieve the result you have in mind without much effort.
