Do bad fences make bad neighbours?


In Robert Frost's poem 'Mending Wall' there is a reference to the saying "Good fences make good neighbours". 
I wonder, is the converse true?

  2. Robert Frost hit the nail on the head.... the higher and the more opaque the fence, the nicer the neighbours and the happier the neighbourhood. The converse applies. Interesting thought :-)
