I have also completed the base for Renedra's Ramshackle Barn. The fencing is their 5 rail plastic fence and the tree is Woodland Scenics. The flocking is mostly Silifor 4mm summer grass, War World 6mm autumn grass and some Heki XL 10mm herbst. Bits and bobs of Woodland Scenics clump foliage and flocked wire shrubs are dotted here and there.
