I am a disabled lady with a 130 pound service dog.
Our yard in East Missoula has a 4 foot chain link fence which is inadequate.
The dog has leaped over it before.
Would there be any possibility of having a fence installed which keeps the
carbon in the fence and out of the air?
What do you think the payment and labor costs would be?
Please let me know your thoughts.

A junkpole fence might work as long as you don't have an HOA to whine that it isn't manufactured. Since you are only needing to add height, I think it would be possible to build the junkpole fence around the exterior of the existing fence to prevent the dog from trying to chew at the poles and add height enough to ensure there is no way for the animal to jump over.
As to the price, I have no idea what someone would charge to do a junkpole fence, but there are people here seeking badges in the PEP who could possibly help themselves and you at the same time. If a permie lives near you who is needing to meet the junkpole requirements, they might even do it for little to nothing as a way to get their badge requirement taken care of while also helping a fellow site member. Just a thought.
Thank God I have no HOA. If helping build my junkpole fence would help someone earn their badge, or a new entry on their resume, I would be delighted. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another possibility is to plant newly cut willow or aspen staves into the soil around the existing fence and weave or graft the branches together. You would have a hedge by the following spring. I have done this on a smaller scale with whips to make a compost pile at my place in NC before I got on permies.
Is there some deep philosophical explanation for why phenol is the most important ingredient in both picric acid and in sulfonamide? Is it that with great ingredients comes great responsibility?
