If you want to add life to a plain fence, you may want to consider adding some green features. This can be something as simple as adding planters. It can also involve a fence design for a vertical garden and landscaping the compliments your fence. Here are some green features that you may want to consider to bring your fence to life:
1. Adding Planters To Give Your Fence Green Features
Planters can be a great way to add green features to your fence. You can use the plastic containers with hooks to hang from the edge of fence rails and use draping plants to cover your fence. You may want to consider building wood containers for the fence, which you can build them to custom fit fence sections. If you have a wood fence, the planters can be attached anywhere on the fence. You can even fix them to the fence in a pattern to create a unique design, such as a diagonal row of planters.
2. Using A Fence Design That Includes A Vertical Garden For Small Spaces
Another option that you may have for your fence is a custom design that includes space for plants. This can be a design with recessed sections that you can use for seating and planting. You can also create a vertical garden with your fence design. This can be a good option if your property has limited space for vegetable gardens and other plants.
3. Designing Your Landscaping To Add Privacy And Height To Your Fence
In addition to your fencing, you may want to consider landscaping design that complements your fence. This can be done by using trellises to train plants to grow up the fence. Trellises can be a great solution to hide a hillside and other landscaping that is unsightly. You may also want to add tall evergreens to create privacy and add plants that will always give your garden color. You may also want to consider planting climbing vines in areas to cover fencing. This can be a great to mask chain link fencing or the areas of your property that have unsightly features like retaining walls.
These are some features that you may want to consider to bring your fence to life. If you are ready to start adding greenery to your fence, contact a fence installation contractor like Hahn-AA Fencing and discuss using some of these ideas for the design of your new fence.
