Fences aren’t strictly a utilitarian purchase. Yes, the right fence can provide security and privacy, but that isn’t all. In fact, fences can be beautiful and add an air of elegance to your yard! An ornamental fence is strong, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. Southern homes have always been known for their charming decor, and at Central Fence, we believe your fence can be a part of that. Here are a few of our favorite ornamental fence ideas.
A Garden Fence with an Archway
A classic picket fence makes a charming addition to any garden, especially when paired with a large arch and a gate. A low fence, just a few feet high, gives definition to the garden and keeps hungry animals out, but still allows unobstructed views. Just a quick hint- low-maintenance aluminum provides an updated look to the classic white picket fence, without the hassle of wood. Welcome guests to your garden through an archway and surrounded by an ornamental fence, and watch their eye light up!
Keep your Privacy Classy
With modern manufacturing techniques, a privacy fence doesn’t have to be off putting and ugly. Vinyl fencing can be made to look like just about anything, including stone. If you’re really serious about your privacy, but don’t want to put up an eye sore, a stone-look fence is a wonderful option. In either six- or eight-feet tall sections, a stone-look fence offers a classic visual, for a modern price. This fence is especially gorgeous in yards that have a lot of trees, flowers, rocks, or a pathway.
Embellish your Fence with Decorations
Dress up a wood picket fence or aluminum fence with garden art. Leave them in place permanently or change them to fit the season or holiday. Wreaths for Christmas and large stars for the Fourth of July will be gorgeous, adding a little extra flair to your backyard for parties. Adding a string of garden lights to your fence can be both pretty and functional, year-round.
An ornamental fence doesn’t necessarily have to be classically-inspired. Instead, you can create a contemporary feel with interesting angles in the rails. Keep long, straight lines and tightly clipped formality throughout the landscape of your yard, and then add a fence that uses horizontal rails strengthened by diagonal boards in a triangular pattern. It’s the perfect wow factor your guests won’t be expecting.
Surround the Patio
Depending on why you want or need a fence, you may not desire your entire yard to be closed off. There’s several reasons a classic, aluminum ornamental fence around a deck makes more sense. It’ll be a perfect decor enhancer for your BBQs, while still deterring burglars or animals from coming up to your back door.
