3 Plants That Will Make Your Fence More Beautiful

3 Plants That Will Make Your Fence More Beautiful

Adding curb appeal is always a good thing for your property. Before you can do that, though, you need to make sure that your fence is in good condition.

Adding curb appeal is always a good thing for your property. Before you can do that, though, you need to make sure that your fence is in good condition. This way, you can avoid citations from your HOA. Then you can start adding some plants to beautify it. 

Virginia Creepers 

Virginia creepers are incredibly forgiving. They love all sorts of soil and light conditions. Even in unfavorable weather conditions, it can still thrive. They bloom best in the fall, so it might be the right time to plant them. They have green leaves now but those same leaves will turn a brilliant shade of red, almost deep enough to be called crimson. Make sure you have some plant ties to help support them, though. If you have a wooden fence, then you should know that Virginia creepers need more maintenance than other plants, since you will need to cut back the leaves and pull the roots out so they don’t clog the slats of the fence


Wisterias are the cast show-off of the bunch. Even though they only exhibit a few colors of flowers, you’ll find them in grape-like clusters. You can also find lilac or pink wisteria flowers. Unlike the other plants on this list, wisterias are more particular about where they like to live. That’s why you should grow them around vinyl or metal fences, and stay away from wooden fences.  

Morning Glories 

Morning glories are annuals, so they will only grow once per year. That means you’ve got to make it count! Make sure you put up some scaffolding or string to help support them as they sprout, though. They do best in late spring, once warmer temperatures are here for real. If you can exercise some patience, you will be well-rewarded. That’s because you’ll see a massive infusion of curb appeal through a riot of colors – some of which include purple, blue, white, pink, and magenta!
