Update of 40-Year Old Fence, Building New Decorative Fence, and Planters to Match

My wife and I decided to improve the looks of our old unattractive and unstable fence along the back of our property. I added 4x6 posts to the front of the fence to stabilize it and added trim boards for more eye appeal. My wife liked the new look so much she wanted us to build a smaller 4 foot version on each side of our back yard, attaching it to our back fence. She felt it would enhance the back yard and also make an attractive backdrop for her flower beds. We also made four planters and designed them to match the fences. (A couple of pictures show the before and after of the small fences we attached to the back fence.)
