A new wood or vinyl fence can add a lot of character to your home, but who says you have to use the same fencing as your neighbors? If you want your home to stand out, make a statement with bold decorative fencing around your property. From bamboo accents to multi-colored lights, you are only limited by your imagination when it comes to sprucing up your new fence. To help get the creative juices flowing, here are a few unique decorative fencing ideas:

Potted Plants and Flowers

If you want to brighten up your perimeter fence, consider attaching potted plants and flowers along the fence line. You can install planter boxes and change out the plants and flowers based on the season, or you can purchase fake flora to reduce maintenance and upkeep.


Strategically placed lighting can have a dramatic effect on your new fence. For a more casual look, simply drape white holiday lights or colorful lanterns across your fence. If you want to create a more compelling look, install outdoor light fixtures along the fence line.


A bit of color goes a long way, especially when it comes to your perimeter fence. If you have a wood fence, consider painting every other post a different color for a fun and playful fence. You can also have your wood or vinyl fence painted one color to highlight or accentuate the exterior color of your home.
