The 7 Pizzeria Enoteca at the square in downtown Oakville has an innovative use of planters as a fence between their outdoor patio and the small park it borders. As of November 2011, they were “slowly developing our website”, I was glad to see that they have worked harder at developing their outdoor seating. I took this photo around 4pm before they opened. An hour and a half later, the patio – which extends to the left of this picture and also has the upper balcony seating – was packed with customers.

  1. I like the decorative metalwork, it’s really snazzy and modern.

  2. That entrance is really different…

  3. Glad to see that they actually had plants in the planters. Several places in the city have the huge planter pots to close off the area (some streets do the same) to traffic but they leave them empty. They become huge waste receptacles that everyone forgets to empty until they start to overflow.

  4. I like the use of planters and plants – but I really love that exuberant squiggle of a porch!

  5. so decorative. i love the practical type of fence. so smart. (:

  6. Living fences–like garden rooftops–are great new trends in design for both commercial and private spaces. We all need an escape from concrete.

  7. a lovely way to create a fence

  8. Lovely — thanks for getting up early enough to snap it ‘people-less’ — makes it easier to admire the details — lovely in black and white!
