A beautifully painted fence will enhance your home
First and foremost, a garden fence is not just an obstacle course for your cat!
Neither is it simply a way to stop your neighbour’s dog from snooping around your garden, trampling your flowers, digging holes in your lawn!
Obviously outdoor fencing is needed to secure your border and create a perimeter around your home, but there are so many more fence ideas that will liven up your outdoor space and reflect your tastes. Painted in beautiful colours a decorative fence not only frames your garden, but does it in style, making you the envy of your neighbours!
Fence decorating is one of the cheapest ways to create a big impact on your outside space, it is also one of the easiest ways to transform your garden.
If you are not adverse to a little DIY, a perfectly painted fence can alter the look of your garden in one fell swoop. Used inside your garden, fencing can section off and create secluded spots for dining and relaxing or can be useful for hiding your garden compost or a rainwater tank behind. Solid fencing gives privacy whereas a slatted fence will let light filter through.
A surrounding fence will essentially keep you, your family and pets safe and secure in your garden and keep any unwanted visitors out.
Choosing a colour for decorating your fence is entirely your decision depending on the look you are striving for. Earth tones such as green will provide camouflage; neutral tones blend in to the garden naturally; shades of grey are very versatile and extremely on trend at the moment. Black is another popular choice being bold and modern and a great backdrop to show off plants and colourful flowers.
Country style whites and pretty pastels suit a picket fence. A brightly coloured option will reflect your own style and you may even choose a two tone effect (darker colour on the bottom) or use a mix of colours. and drink(s!).
You may be eager to decorate your fence with hanging baskets or a garden clock, and mirrors are a great way to make a small space seem larger. Small garden shelves on fencing are always handy for plant pots or for storing items in a barbecue area.
It's really bang on at the moment to extend your whole home into your garden, even somewhere to sleep like in this shot! A fence really helps the backdrop to al of this and your colour choices can help set the mood you are lookng for.
With a trellis attached you can grow a lovely climbing plant, or simply keep your garden fence unadorned and wow with colour from raised flower beds running along side or with potted plants and garden furniture.
