No doubt, climate change is real. It's been happening for over 3 billion years. I'm not willing to say man made climate change is a boondoggle and a scam, yet. It's making a lot of people very rich. I've got nothing against people getting rich. I'd like get rich too. Reducing dependence on hydrocarbon fuel is a good thing. "Go green, baby," but try to make it economical first. I'd like that 80mpg car and that 10 cent megawatt from a windmill. Keep working on it. Maybe I'll be able to afford it some day.
The main benefit of an electronic fence is there is no physical structure visible on the property. Wires are placed a short distance below the ground and a small control unit is mounted somewhere in the house, typically in the garage. Your Bichon Frise wears a collar with a small battery operated transmitter attached. If he crosses over one of the wires marking the acceptable boundaries of the yard, a small electrical current emits from the transmitter on his collar, and he receive an unpleasant feeling like a small shock.
Wood is probably the oldest type of material that has historically been used for constructing arbors and pergolas. It is inexpensive, readily available, and can be easily cut. Furthermore, wood can be stained or painted to match another existing structure, such as the house, shed or garage. One downfall of wood is that it does decay over time. Wood can also harbor certain types of pests, and it will eventually rot, splinter, and crack. The types of wood that can be used in an arbor or pergola are almost endless, but generally it's a good idea to look for a wood that weathers well and resists decay, such as cedar. For a rustic look, consider using log cedar. For a very basic, rudimentary structure, you could even use fallen timber, branches, and twigs tied together.
In any case, when you hire a contractor make sure the preliminary work is done and understand who is going to be responsible for getting the property marked. Get that agreement in writing on your contract.
