How about a fence for the yard that is Plexiglass or a high
quality super-clear plastic that allows you to have the
of a fence without the constant maintenance or blocked

||Since some of us already weekly pay gardeners, poolmen, household maids (and maybe even dogwalkers in urban setttings) I just want to be certain that you are not suggesting that I hire someone else at , say, $7.00 US per hour or more to wash this Invisible Fence at least once a week to maintian its invisibility...Somehow that doesn't seem like the kinder, gentler, more simple life I imagined for my dotage. I used to enjoy that unobstructed view a great deal, though, before the dogs put their noses up against it.
||Many deck railings I've seen have glass or plexiglass inserts, instead of slats, to protect the view. I suppose it could be taken to this extreme. I have noticed, though, that those who used plexiglass are usually sorry they did as it gets scratched so easily.
||Invisible fences work quite well but only when the animal, almost always a doggie, is wearing a special collar that shocks them when they try to cross the "fence" line. (link-a-roo)
||I think the "wireless fence" signs are there to let passers-by know that an apparently-unsecured dog isn't. Of course, that brings to mind the old joke:
||Man #1: [noticing dog near man #2] Does your bog bite?
Man #2: Certainly not.
Man #1: Nice doggie doggie
Man #1: I thought you said your dog didn't bite?
Man #2: That's not my dog.
||Invisible fences of the non-imaginary kind have a MTBF* equal to the probability of a Motorcycle or Snow-Mobile cutting across your property. (*MTBF = mean time between failure)
