We took this drab, boring section of chain link fence to fabulous artsy surfboard Installation with just a few easy steps!
8 foot Section of over grown fence line.
We gathered 6 surfboards with varying height and size. These boards have lived long lives full of Maui waves. With a few bumps, bruises, and dings, the surfboard fence is a way to revive them and give them a whole new purpose!
We went to digging. A trench 4 inches wide and about 4 inches deep was all it took! Keep the excess dirt to fill the trench back up later on!
We chose Cabin Red for our fence! We loved the contrast of the Plumbago plants that are planted around the garden area. Make sure you get a paint and primer Such as Valspar Duralast that is made for outdoor use!
Three bags at $5.99/bag! Pour a layer of water, followed by a layer of Quikrete Concrete. Set boards into place paying attention to height and placement. Follow with the remainder of the concrete and another layer of water to top it off.
Let concrete set for several hours and fill with remaining dirt. Take small wire, feed around each board threading through the fence to ensure stability for those windy days!
VUALA! A beautiful addition to our beautiful garden!
