Three Decorative Garden Fence Ideas

Updated:2013-08-14 15:13:30
A decorative garden fence serves an aesthetic purpose, while also clarifying the boundaries of the property or of a section of it. Many families feel safer if their children are fenced in while playing in the yard and others want to ensure that curious pets aren't at risk of running into the road. Whatever the reason for your decorative garden fence, there are several choices when it comes material, color, shape and size.
TIP: Our expert gardening advisor, Kathy Bosin adds, "In most US jurisdictions, a building permit is required in order for a homeowner installs a fence of any kind. Be sure to check with your local town code for any special instructions."
Wooden Picket Fence
Typically American, wooden picket fences remain popular throughout the US, particularly in suburban areas. Ranging in height from 1 to 5 feet, a picket fence is a great way to border your front lawn and is easy to install.
Fence posts need to be buried around 2 feet in the ground but shouldn't need any extra support, such as concrete.
TIP: Kathy cautions you, "In many locations, fence posts need to be dug below the freeze level in the soil, typically 36 inches, and concrete poured into the hole to secure the posts. This requires some research or experience to ensure that the posts are positioned properly."
Use pressure treated lumber and be sure to paint it to protect it from the elements. Winding tendrils around the spokes or placing hanging baskets along the visible side can also enhance the visual appeal of your decorative garden fence.
Vinyl Fence
Vinyl fences are solid, durable and can be made to resemble real wood. They are a good option if you are looking for a low-maintenance fence that is built to last. Although they can be more expensive than wood fences, there are a wide range of colors available. Composite wood is a wildly popular version of wood-like vinyl fencing and is noted for the amazing levels of durability that it possesses.
