What is the purpose of this ridiculously narrow fence?

Oh my. Fence models have really gotten quite thin for these catalog shots and they’re still airbrushed.

Legal requirement. Where they live people have right of passage across your lawn unless you have some form of fence indicating that it’s private property. Ya think?

Bad landscape design is allowing the soil/mulch from the bed to flow over the sidewalk when it rains.

I swear I read that as “Finland,” maybe because I spent so too much time in this thread the other day.

One meter from the road is public property, then it is private property from there to the right. The fence blocks the part of the public property over the rainwater gully, indicating you should walk on the high part of the public land.

That sounds so logical I fooled myself into totally believing it.
