Fences are common elements of any property. But they don’t always have to be drab and boring. Sure, decorations might not always spring to mind when you think about rejuvenating your fences. But decorative fencing can give your home and your yard a surprising boost. Here are some ideas to consider adding to your homes, just in time for 4th of July. Bring the fireworks show to your yard!
Redefining Boundaries with Decorative Fencing
One of the biggest reasons to install a fence is to protect your family’s privacy. While your kids and pets should be able to see out, you might not always want the outside world to be able to look in. Fence panels are a good idea, but consider how they might block your view. Another unintentional side effect of fence panels is the potential to feel squeezed in. You only need a few panels of decorative fencing to make a difference. Just two panels are often enough to open up your entire yard.
Where Does Your Yard Begin?
Another reason fences are frequently used is to mark where your neighbor’s yard ends. You don’t want to encroach on your neighbor’s property any more than they want to do the same to you. So the question is, where does your yard begin? How do you account for corners? Try using corner fencing! To achieve corner fencing, two fence panels are used to form an angle. The corner fences project an imaginary line from corner to corner.
Corner fences add another dimension to your landscaping and lawn design possibilities. Plant some flowers or start a garden in the spaces provided by the corners. Decorative rocks can help your fences look even better. If you’ve ever dreamed of that iconic white picket fence, this is your chance to make it happen.
More Than Meets the Eye
Miniature fences are often overlooked. Not because they’re so small, but because you might not expect them to make a difference in your yard. But you can use these fences to draw the eye of visitors, or if need be, pull their gaze away from certain elements of your yard. Hide power generators, trash cans, or loose tools with miniature fences. Especially if you have no tool shed, this might be a clever solution, and it’ll look good, to boot.
Garden fences might seem like a given; there’s a reason the phrase even exists. It’s totally understandable you’d want to show off your gardens – they are a point of pride, after all – but sometimes wild animals can enjoy your garden a little too much. Consider lattice fences for protecting your gardens from these marauding creatures.
Hot tub fences are another attractive option. While your backyard might not be ideal for a full-sized pool, that shouldn’t hold you back from installing a hot tub. Privacy matters around a hot tub, so deploy vinyl fences. Not only will the vinyl shield you from prying eyes, it can also withstand whatever water it is exposed to as well.
