When I was six years old, I dug a little hole in a secluded nook at the far back of my grandmother’s garden and planted my very first garden. It was a little patch, with no more than six rows and ten plants long, but it was MINE, with the flowers that I chose and the earth that I excavated. When Nana helped me erect the segments of the wire fence that separated it from HER garden, I realized that it was officially mine after that. One of the most useful functions that a garden fence may do is to highlight and demarcate different sections of your garden.
You might go with a border edging that is six or twelve inches high, or you could set up a stretch of post-and-rail garden fence in the middle of a sweep of grass.
A lawn and garden fence may be a lovely decorative element to add to your landscape. You may turn your garden into a showplace that will be the envy of the neighborhood if you take a look at some new and interesting ways to utilize garden fences.
Wood Garden Fencing
Lattice made of wood makes for a lovely garden fence that provides some degree of seclusion while yet allowing views of the surrounding landscape.
A whole new design dimension may be brought to the façade of your garden by incorporating lattice boards into a wooden privacy fence. A single width of lattice fence may serve as a windbreak, screen, and support for any climbing vines that might be present. Set a lattice panel at the edge of the garden closest to the house and train morning glories to climb it to produce a scenic wall outside of a kitchen or bedroom window. Alternatively, build a simple arbor with two full-height lattice panels that are spaced six to eight feet away from one another.
Make a “bridge” for climbing plants to traverse by using thick garden twine to construct the framework for a live “roof.”
Border Edging Garden Fencing
The use of border edging as a garden fence is yet another incredibly flexible alternative. Consider ideas that lie outside the box.
You may create smaller accents inside a garden plot by using a wire garden fence to create smaller accents, or you can define one corner or end of a garden with cast iron border edging. You may build curving borders for slightly elevated garden beds with cedar shakes or redwood blocks, or you can use them as a background for spilling blue lobelia or white alyssum over the top of them. To get a one-of-a-kind appearance in your garden, build a zigzag border out of a beautiful low picket fence and then plant zinnias or marigolds in the V-shaped openings.
The Patio Wall Comprised Garden Fences
Garden fences may be arranged in such a way as to provide an attractive backdrop for outdoor eating. You should get a metal trellis and position it up just within the boundary of the patio, behind the table and dining set. You may make an accent that defines the edge of the patio by training climbing roses to grow up over it. This will also provide an exquisite and stylish accent for both your patio and garden at the same time.
