All things considered, your chain link fence is low maintenance and incredibly versatile. That said, you don’t want to have to sacrifice your own personal style and flair when it comes to decorating your fence. Here are some tips on how to make it look prettier this spring.
Bamboo isn’t just for pandas, or for the flooring inside your home. You can use bamboo to enhance your curb appeal by attaching it to your chain link fence. All you need is some 16 gauge wire to hold the bamboo in place. You’ll also find that using bamboo panels increasing the privacy around your yard by about 85%. When you want to go with this option, find bamboo that has been cut down to the nodes. The nodes will help protect the bamboo against weather damage, such as the wind and rain of late spring.
You can also increase the privacy potential of your chain link by stretching a privacy panel over it. You might think that a simple tarp might work, but although it looks like a solid option after a while the tarp will start to rip. Instead, choose what is known as a fence screen. However, when you do this, be aware that it won’t be as beautiful as you might expect. That said, it will be extremely durable, so consider your trade-offs before moving on.
You can combine the look of wood fences with the structure of your chain link fence. All you need to do is install some wooden panels. These panels look fantastic and will also boost the privacy around your home. Choose cedar for this purpose, since it has natural oils in it that help it resist erosion effects. Even if you’d like a different type of wood, you can treat it to be more weather-resistant and last longer with the right sealant.
