When it comes to improving your home with a decorative fence, your options are pretty much limitless. Depending on the architecture of your home, the layout of your yard, and the size of your property, certain fences may appeal to you more than others– in the end, though, you’re only limited by your imagination! Check out a few of these great ideas for inspiration for your next project.
Everyone’s familiar with the classic image of a home with a white picket fence. With vinyl, you can achieve that look on your own lawn! But you don’t have to stop there– vinyl comes in a variety of styles, so you can create several different looks. Surround your front yard with a short fence to accent your property. Mark off flower beds or patio areas to make them stand out. Just keep in mind that if you want the fence to help show off your yard, you’ll need to purchase panels that aren’t tall enough to block the view! Of course, if you want your privacy vinyl fence to double as a decoration, you have options. Select an attractive taller panel, like one with a lattice top section. You can also customize your post toppers by selecting a style that suits the rest of your decor. Regardless of the fence height, be sure to regularly clean it to avoid unsightly mold growth and keep your vinyl fence looking beautiful.
An aluminum ornamental fence is a stately way to add a touch of class. Since the panels aren’t solid, you don’t have to worry about a tall fence blocking everyone’s sight of your yard. If you’re looking to expand on the classic look, add an ornate gate, perhaps with brick pillars. Bonus: decorative aluminum fencing also doubles as a subtle way to restrict access to private areas like swimming pools or backyards.
A rustic wooden fence looks great on a country lawn. You can dress up tall panels by planting a running vine along the top and training it to cover the length of the fence– select flowering plants for a pop of color. (Just be sure to keep them neatly trimmed!) If you prefer plants that don’t grow as quickly, a short hedge of shrubs planted along the bottom of a taller fence is a crisp way to break up the monotony of brown wood. You can also customize your wood panels by staining them a shade that complements your lawn or home.
Whichever you choose, you can make your fence the perfect accent for your home. Remember that you can add spice to your fence with decorations, plants, or other objects so the sky is the limit. For more information on which fence style is right for your needs, contact us at Central Fence today.
