Major Landscape Features - Creative Fences
Include fencing in your landscape design
Proper fencing can complement your garden décor. Whether you use your yard for entertaining, for the kids to play or pets to run around, your landscape design isn't complete without the right http://www.lumagardenstructures.com/fencing/'>fencing. Similar to decks, fences require very little maintenance, but they can significantly enhance the appearance of your yard.
When deciding on what type of fence you want, think about why you want it. Is it supposed to add privacy or is it just for cosmetic purposes? There are fence styles that add beauty to your landscape regardless of what you want them for.
Take Advantage of Open Landscapes
For houses that don't have close neighbors, a good way to make your yard look nicer is by putting in a metal picket fence or low wood fence. Metal fencing matches modern garden décor, whereas the traditional white picket wood fence matches more natural décor.
If your yard backs onto a forest, low wooden fences blend in with the natural beauty of the landscape. Even if you have neighbors, you can use a higher fence for privacy while still making the division more natural by using unpainted wood.
Complement Your Style
Fencing should match the style of your patio furniture or outdoor living room:
• Wood fencing matches wicker furniture.
• Stone fireplaces can be enhanced with metal picket fences that have stone posts.
• Wrought iron fences look great with metal chairs and glass tables.
Get Privacy with Style
Wood and vinyl fences can give you the privacy you want, but can also create an appealing view. Instead of installing the standard wooden board fence, add a lattice along the top. You can also get intricate posts between sections of the fence. Small details like the lattice and posts can truly transform your fence and polish your landscape.
