With the vast variety of garden fence styles, shapes and colours on offer, you can afford to be picky. Fencing panels are a good, traditional way of marking out boundaries and creating a personal space. However, you needn’t stick to the usual old style of fence. With just a bit of looking around, you can find a fence panel that not only serves its purpose, but also makes a statement about you and your home.
Those who prefer a private, enclosed feel might like to have tall, close-slatted fencing; providing piece of mind and a space away from prying eyes. Additionally, this style is great for keeping in pesky pets, and reinforced varieties are available, perfect for withstanding the kid’s overly enthusiastic football games. But even these needn’t be bland, you could have bow-topped panels, flat-topped, painted panels, even the slat design can be different, the room for creativity is quite large.
There are also those who like an open, welcoming feel to their garden, and so might choose a low form of fence, or one with well-spaced slats, allowing light in, whilst also providing a view of the world outside your garden. Again, here the list is endless. Picket fences, bow-topped designs, perhaps even a lattice-trellis effect, which not only gives that open feel, but is also great for growing climbing plants up.
Once you’ve selected your perfect fence, it needn’t end there. You could decide to paint, dye or stain the panels, in whatever colour. Perhaps you’d like them to blend in amongst your garden, in a subtle and natural way? Or perhaps you’d prefer to choose a bold colour, making a statement, with your garden paradise as a backdrop? For a truly complete look, there are fence panels available with a gate to match, giving your perimeter line a fluid look. You could even place trellis along the top of your panels (there are some designed for this purpose), enhancing the aesthetics, and providing a good frame for climbing plants. You could also alternate bow-topped panels with flat-topped or concave panels, creating the look of waves.
When looking to alter or enhance your garden boundaries, be sure to explore your options. Your garden haven is a reflection of you, so why not have a fence line to prove that? Whether you’re looking for practicality, style or a blend of both, be aware that there is a fence panel for every person, and every garden, so be picky! Your garden is after all, a place to suit your needs, nobody else’s.
