The Stone Fence

As usual, I keep my eyes peeled for an unusual fence, so I can join in on the Run Around The Ranch's Good Fence link party on Thursdays
and I think this one just might fits the bill. Looks like someone  used wire mesh, the type used in concrete foundations... built a frame, and filled it with stones. I am wondering where they got all of these stones, since it is really not that rocky around here. Maybe the plan is to pour concrete down through the rock, making for a very sturdy fence?...... but that is just a guess.
A bit further back the fence got wider and taller with different colored stones.
So, maybe you can guess the intent here?

  3. I do wonder if that method of building a stone wall will work. Mostly, I'm wondering why they would want a stone wall so close to their house. But great fence spotting!

  4. Do wonder what they are up too. Maybe facing it and a barbecue area? Please check back and let us know.

  7. We have these fences here too. They are mostly used in public places as in our busstop square. I see them quite often now, the stones have a vulcanic origin and are sold at natural stone trades.

  8. Well, they can't pour concrete and expect that wire to hold it in! so, my guess is that they plan to grow some sort of vine on the wires which will make it pretty if it ever grows to cover it all!

  11. Well, that certainly is a big unusual fence. Maybe, they are from Ireland.

  14. Janey, there is a whole building in the John Denver Sanctuary in Aspen that is this rock in wire construction. That building looks cooler than this fence though.

  15. Dearest Janey,
    Guess you have to follow up and find out what they will do with it next... Not a nice view so close to the house but who are we to judge?!
    Hugs,
