Very useful ideas. I am partial to Tony North Eastern's use of cork stripping as it looks
to be pretty fool proof. I also like the clay idea, which I used to fashion an abbreviated
Stone Henge, which to my surprise was fairly recognizable.

Mr. Miniature's program of creating this somewhat expensive jig and pouring and mashing quantities of gravel is fine if I wanted to trim the entire 4x8 foot base board, but I am looking for maybe 30 or so cm. Perhaps if I followed his program I could try selling the stuff as I see no other wall like it.

Another fence vs. hedge question, I am thinking of lining the right aspect of this road with hedge. Would that be about right? If so, would it be hedgerow
or rough hedge?

A hedge in those circumstances would be looked after.

Hi Chops, i would say a rough hedge. Hedges were usually Hawthorn, Blackthorn or Hazel trees.

Itís a hedge along a village green near a war memorial. It would be neatly cut. Well fairly neatly cut. Occasionally.

Default Hedge and Statue

A hedge the village green. I think it might look better if it were
rolled in some Woodland Scenics turf. After debating the
merits of making my own rustic stone wall, I simply went
with this Italeri piece after giving it a gray wash. For all
the expense of buying raw materials, this was the same
price, and after so much time I just want to get on with it.

Where the bare area is will be a small pond with ducks.
