Our house is located in a neighborhood with small lots. My new border-neighbor has a inherited the rusted chain-link fence that came with his nice house.
I've approached the neighbors with the idea of removing the fence, but they don't seem amenable to that.
What we want is a way to visually state "This rusty, chain-link fence doesn't not belong to us".
The only thing that I've thought of is installing a corner fence next to the chain-link fence. Something like this:

or maybe a corner picket fence. However, it would be only about half a foot from the chain-link, and I'm not sure if that would look too weird to justify the statement.
I'd appreciate any recommendations or suggestions!
