What role does a fence serve? You might feel like that’s an easy question initially. For many, a fence is meant to supply a border for your landscape. That is one of the many roles a fence can offer your property, but there are other ways you can make use of a fence. Decorative fencing, in fact, has many unique uses that most other fences don’t have. Here is what you can do with decorative fencing to improve your yard.
Establish a Boundary Without Making Your Yard Feel Cramped
A common incentive for people to install fences is to create some privacy for their yards. If this is the purpose you want your fence to serve, you could use solid panels to construct it. The one problem with solid panels is the claustrophobic feel they can sometimes instill. You can still establish boundaries around your yard without obstructing anyone’s view of it.
With decorative fencing, you can have a border that clearly defines your property lines without the need to cut off anyone’s view of your yard. This way, your yard will feel more open and inviting.
Marking Your Property’s Corners
Another way to mark the property lines of your home is with corner fences. Corner fencing is a type of decorative fencing that doesn’t use many panels. All it uses is two fence panels that create an angle. It’s the same as with a regular fence but without investing into the remaining fence posts.
By placing corner fencing at the two opposite corners of your yard, you can indicate to passersby where your property lines are while minimizing the number of fence posts you have to install. As a bonus, you can decorate your corner fencing with captivating stones and flowers, so the fence looks better with your landscape.
Use Decorative Fencing Only to Surround Certain Features of Your Yard
Sometimes, you don’t need fencing to go around your whole yard. Maybe you just want to create a border around certain features. With decorative fencing, you can conceal unsightly parts of your yard and put something more aesthetically pleasing around them to boost your yard’s overall curb appeal.
Decorative fencing can also be used on features like gardens, which don’t need to be hidden but do appreciate a little protection from various critters that could eat away at them.
