A chain link fence is a fantastic option for both home and business owners. It is very inexpensive, yet does it’s job keeping unwanted visitors out and pets and children in. However, it can be said that a chain link fence isn’t exactly “pretty.” In order to fix this, many people like to plant flowers, bushes, and vines along their fence to cover the chain link. The best way to do this is to choose a plant that spreads, so you don’t have to place a plant every few feet. Here are a few easy low-maintenance plants to get you started:
Certain vines can bring a lovely backdrop to the garden fence. Many times foliage vines that grow on fences are variegated or have splendid fall color and are exciting to look at in our climate. For a foliage vine for your fence, try (1) Hardy Kiwi (2) Variegated Porcelain (3) Vine Virginia Creeper (4) Silver Fleece Vine, or (5) Purple Leaved Grape.
Evergreen plants that grow on fences can help to keep your fence looking lovely all year round. They can also help add winter interest to your garden or serve as a backdrop to your other plants. Some evergreen vines for covering chain link fences include (6) Persian Ivy (7) English Ivy (8) Boston Ivy (9) Creeping Fig or (10) Carolina Jessamine.
If you would like to look at flowering vines for fences, you have several choices. Some nice options in perennial flowering vines for your new chain link fence include (11) Dutchman’s Pipe (12) Trumpet Vine (13) Clematis (14) Climbing Hydrangea or even a (15) Honeysuckle or (16) Wisteria.
If you would like a fast growing plant to cover the fence, you will want an annual. Some annual flowering vines for fences include (17) Hops (18) Hyacinth (19) Bean Black-eyed Susan Vine (20) Passion Flower or a (21) Morning Glory.
