Finding the right garden fence might seem a little daunting at first, but don’t worry; we’ve got three tips to help you get started.

Garden Fence - Three Tips for Selecting the Right Type for Your Site

  • Consider your purpose for constructing a fence

Do you wish for a fanciful fence to accent your flower garden or are you in need of a practical barrier to keep critters from feasting on your prize peppers?

Perhaps you could address both features with a pretty fence that looks great with your cottage garden flowers, yet keeps veggie plants safe from grazing animals?

  • Find the right type of fence

Think about the material that might suit your needs and decor preferences. Do you like the look and versatility of wood? The durability of wrought iron?

Wood fencing designs can be shaped to fit the lay of your lawn. They can be built to blend with your home’s architecture, whether your house is modern in style or from former a era. Treated wood lasts well. A variety of types are available, as well as stains to suit your taste. Wood fencing preserves privacy and creates a protected refuge for your plants.

Modern, specially coated wrought iron fence is very enduring. A wide variety of detailed styles are available. Designs and heights can be adjusted to home owner requirements. This type of fence protects against large animal intrusion, yet preserves views. It blends well with most historic architecture.

Many innovative gardeners have used  fences as trellises to support plants, hanging places for pots, or as a canvas for an outdoor mural. Like the idea of wooden fencing?
