No home is complete without a good, sturdy fence. But even though increasing security and privacy are important, you don’t want to make your yard feel claustrophobic. Here are some fantastic fences you can use that won’t make you feel like you’re squeezed into a small box.
By collecting twigs and bundling them together, you can form a twig fence. The twig fence can be used to protect gardens and lawns while still displaying them to anyone who wants to stop and look around while admiring your property. Plus this fence can help protect your yard from animals in the neighborhood, whether they are pets or squirrels and deer who happen to wander through your front yard.
Hedges also form a natural wall that you can guide and shape as it grows. Because it is a hedge and is alive, you won’t feel as though it is closing you in. Complement the hedge with some plants that grow more quickly than others do, and more importantly, ones that grow closer together to help give you more privacy. Privet can do this, and it won’t need much water – just make sure it’s not classified as invasive where you live.
Along with wood, stone used to be one of the most common materials used for fence building. Using stones sourced from local quarries and other producers of stone is both sustainable and friendly to the environment. It can also boost your curb appeal while lasting much longer than other residential fences you might consider since stone is immune to the effects of rot, fading, fire, and termite invasions. It can be eroded, but that will take decades by which time you might not even be living in the same home anymore.
Spring and summer are the best seasons to build a lattice fence. The openings in the lattice can let the gentle breeze blow through your yard, making the grass ripple in a way that looks mesmerizing when the sun breaks through the clouds and comes out to say hello. You can also build lattice windows into your fence or put some latticework on the top to help discourage climbers.
