Garden fence ideas to transform your home
Whether it’s for privacy, security or as a decorative feature, a well-designed fence can offer the perfect garden enhancement.
Fences are no longer used to only secure space or mark boundaries. These days, they have the power to make or break kerb appeal.
However, to truly complement your property’s existing architecture, it’s critical to consider your fence’s purpose, style and material choice.
Here are a few garden fence ideas to inspire you:
Classic, timeless and elegant, white picket fencing adds instant charm to a home.
Picket fencing suits most housing styles but are typically found in traditional and heritage homes. Designs can be decorative or contemporary, depending on the home’s architectural features.
To minimise the annual paint jobs and maintenance, consider steel picket fencing with powder coating.
Modern modular fencing
If you’re after style on a budget, modular fencing may be an ideal option. Modular fencing combines a fibrecement outer skin with a lightweight core, usually made from polystyrene, which makes an attractive fencing feature with noise-reduction qualities.
Art décor influence
To play on the best characteristics of art décor homes, wrought-iron fencing styles provide an aesthetically pleasing combination.
Steel and aluminium materials can offer a cost-effective alternative to achieve the wrought-iron style, without the hefty price tag.
Because of the sturdiness of the materials used for this fencing style, they’re also effective for increasing security.
Using glass for fencing gives homes a sleek, clean look.
Although glass is typically used for pool fencing, it’s beneficial in other areas of the garden or as a balcony feature for uninterrupted views.
Choose from framed or frameless glass fencing or combine with stainless steel or powder coated aluminium for added detail.
If you love the appeal of glass but want
more privacy, opt for frosted glass panels.
Decorative privacy screens are laser-cut to etch patterns into steel panels.
Such fencing styles can be personalised for an innovative charm, adding detail to any space. Etched designs may be minimal for more privacy or open the panels up with bolder engravings.
Green wall garden
You don’t have to limit your gardening to the ground.
Green wall gardens are innovative, attractive and a major feature for yards. They also offer privacy by screening off views.
Take advantage of lattice fencing to grow climbing vines. Fast-growing plants, like clumping bamboo and other screening shrubs, also make fantastic green wall gardens and help to breathe more life into outdoor living areas.
To complete your garden space, transform with paving and lighting to further accentuate the zone.
