More than adding privacy and structure to your backyard, garden, or pool, decorative fencing can also turn the areas outside of your home into comfortable outdoor living spaces. Whether you prefer the look of wood, the strength of wrought iron, or the durability of vinyl, a new decorative fence can completely transform the look and feel of your outdoor living space. Here are a few tips to create unique and compelling outdoor areas with decorative fencing.
Soften a White Fence
If you originally went with the classic white picket fence look but now feel that your white fence feels stark and bare in your yard, soften it a bit by weaving rambling roses, clematis, or other plants through the pickets. This is a great way to add a dash of much-needed color to your fence.
Match Fence Details to Your Home
If you will be adding additional details or supporting elements to your fence, try to match them to your home to tie various landscape elements together. For instance, if brick pillars will be used to securely hold wood fence rails in place, match the brick to others used in your patio or on your house. This will create a cohesive look throughout your property.
Embellish Your Fence With Decorations
If you want to make your wood or vinyl fence pop, dress it up with garden art and other ornamental pieces designed for use outdoors. You can leave these decorations in place year-round or change them to fit the season or holiday. Framed metal starts, potted plants, and wrought iron sculptures are a few examples of great fence decorations.
