Fencing in your garden will protect crops from foot traffic and will add a bit of semblance to property that does not contain defined areas. Choose a fencing material and style that will either support clear visibility on both sides of the border or that will add a bit of privacy and accent a targeted amount of greenery or floral blooms.
The Materials And The Styles
A fencing contractor will show you samples of simple picket or panel-style fences and ones that contain cutouts, lattice pieces, and ornamental trim. Wood, aluminum, wrought iron, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), or composite materials can be used to construct a fence that is tall or short in stature.
A rustic style may consist of reclaimed wood that has been distressed or new wood pieces that have been stained. For a stately fence style that contains scrollwork or a unique design, consider a corrosion-resistant metal material that possesses a consistent pattern on each side of the enclosure. A contractor will help you choose materials that will personalize the enclosure and that will make your garden easily accessible.
The Height, The Amount Of Coverage, And Access
When viewing your garden, pick out some natural features that you would like to integrate with the fencing design. Young fruit trees, a series of vines, or healthy plants that possess colorful blooms may be some organic items that add appeal to your property and that you will want to continue to enjoy when spending time outside of your garden.
The type of view that you would like to be provided with will help you choose a sufficient height and coverage amount for the new enclosure. Access to the garden will require the use of a gate or a door. An entryway can be elaborate in design and feature a canopy or a lattice overhang, which will aid in displaying long and leafy branches.
For a more simplistic style that will solely keep the garden items contained, choose low-lying wooden or PVC panels or a taller fence style that contains pickets or panels. Chicken wire or netting can be used to cover gaps. Either material will not affect the appearance of the fence but will protect the garden from wildlife intrusions.
If you prefer to have a privacy fence installed but would still like to enjoy greenery when the gate is closed, add a bit of vegetation along the outside of the fence. After your contractor installs the fencing materials, prepare a plot along one or more sides of the fence and plant flowering plants or shrubs. The new additions will serve as a precursor to what one will find once they enter the garden area.
