Garden fencing can serve several purposes, but one of the best is to accent and define areas of your garden. No matter if you choose a six or twelve inch high border edging, or stand a section of post and rail garden fencing in the center of a sweep of lawn, garden fencing can put a beautiful accent to your landscaping.
Wood lattice creates eye-catching garden fencing that affords some privacy while enabling glimpses of the garden. Lattice boards set into a wooden privacy fence bring an entire new design dimension to the frontage of your garden. A single width of lattice fencing can give a screen or windbreak, and uphold any climbing vines.
Border edging is one more extremely versatile garden fencing choice. Consider outside the perimeter. You are able to use wire garden fencing to produce smaller accents within a garden plot, or outline one corner or end of a garden with cast iron border edging.
Cedar shakes or redwood blocks could be used to create curved borders for slightly raised garden beds, or serve as a backdrop over which to spill indigo lobelia or white alyssum. Create a zigzag border of decorative low picket garden fencing and plant zinnias or marigolds in the V-shaped ‘teeth’ for a special look.
Garden fencing can be used to create a stunning background for patio dining. Select a metal trellis and install it just off the patio edge behind the table and dining set. Twine climbing roses up over it to create an accent that defines the edge of the patio and creates an elegant, tasteful accent to your patio and garden at the same time.
Wrought-iron or cast-iron fences tend to be ornate, which fits more formal, historic houses, such as Victorians, or high-end urban homes. These days, related styles are obtainable in powder-coated steel, anodized aluminum or composite materials which are much more affordable and simpler to maintain.
Stone fences, that are the oldest known type of fencing, make great garden walls or boundary markers around traditional homes, for example Colonials and Cape Cods, when built with native stone. Dry-stacked walls stay together with the aid of gravity and friction.
The picket fence, a low, decorative design utilized to define property rather than secure it, is a universally well-liked design flexible enough to work with nearly any house. There are many variations on the picket fence, including the Federal design, which features scalloped pickets and decorative finials.
