Your fence does a lot of work for your home (ensuring privacy, providing security, increasing value, etc.), but one of the significant roles is your curb appeal. Regardless of the age of your fence, that curb appeal can be improved with some fence enhancement, such as tasteful seasonal decorating. During the winter holidays, decorating your fence seems natural, but you can add décor any time of year. Different types of fencing require and allow for other decorative elements. Read on for some great tips to decorate your fence this spring.
There are many ways to add adornment to your fence, depending on the type of fence and your creative talent. Many privacy fences offer the ideal surface for a mural, or if painting skills aren’t in your repertoire, you could paint it multiple colors. You could also adorn your fence with natural beauty like flower boxes or climbing plants. Chain link lends itself easily to being a trellis for vine plants (but be warned, it can be hard to undo this decision if you finally decide you don’t like the look).
You could also add textile decorations, like banners, streamers, or flags, to the fence, especially if you want to tailor the embellishments to the season or holiday. Finally, strings of lights are a great way to decorate your fence and light up your lawn at the same time – lots of people assume these are only for Christmas, but they create a great atmosphere all year long.
Choose An Ornamental Fence
One last thought, especially if you are considering replacing your fence soon – some fences are beautifully ornamental all on their own. Consider choosing a fencing material that makes the fence beautiful and decorative without adding anything. For the most part, you don’t have to swap safety or security for beauty either. Wrought iron fences, for instance, are striking and beautiful without any adornment. If the price tag of wrought iron isn’t in your master plan, consider ornamental aluminum. It is still durable and long-lasting while also beautiful in its own right.
