Default Hedge vs. fence question

I am planning on enclosing this bit next to the mill- the question is if a
hedgerow or a rustic white fence would be more believable. Please advise.

A rustic brown fence. White fences donít stay white for long in the UK, more a shade of green.

How about a stone wall to match the mill

If it is to go along the side of the lade then a fence, so that it is easy to get past to clear the wheel

Stone wall, that never even crossed my mind until now.

Default Stone wall

Been looking up stone walls, ready made, and found nothing that
quite fit the bill.

Then there is this rather interesting DIY video
using gravel mixed with glue, then colored, greened up that
looks rather convincing, and fairly simple, except for some
drilling plexi glass for a jig. Now the fix is to find the right
gravel, the closest relative to what the fellow was using
is fish tank gravel.

Hi chops, do have air dry clay in craft shops across the pond, it goes by the name DAS in the UK? If you lay two strips of wood down on a board that are thick enough and the correct spacing for the height of the wall you want. Next roll the DAS out like pastry and carve your own stone to make your own dry stone wall... easy

Depends which part of the country you are modelling I reckon. Or just what ever looks best. I would like stone wall myself..........John
