It's really just an old chain link fence that has shifted out of shape by time and old tree roots. I've always wanted to replace it with a white picket fence like I have in other parts of my yard, but it would be impossible to dig holes for the fence posts with the numerous roots everywhere.
This spring I redid this side of the yard creating a gravel path and planting forsythia along both sides of the path.
I found the wrought iron head boards at flea markets and yard sales and for the life of me now, I can't remember what my original intent for them was. One day I set them up against the chain link fence and loved the way they looked ~ so there they stayed.
I wish I didn't have to see the chain link behind the head boards, but when you have a small dog who can squeeze through any crack, it's not an option to remove it.
Still ~ it looks better than just the rusty chain link and dresses up the side of the yard a wee bit. I added a wreath to match the ones hanging on the front windows to give the gate a more welcoming look.
