In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the top options available to homeowners looking to accessorize and personalize their property fences. While fences serve purposes like defining property boundaries and adding security, they are also a visual representation of the property’s style that many people want control over.
At Utah Fence Warehouse, we’re here to assist you with not only choosing the best fence material for your needs – we offer wood fences, vinyl options and numerous additional choices – but also to help you achieve the aesthetic you’re going for on your property. In today’s part two, we’ll go over a few other themes many property owners look to within this realm, plus a couple general tips we can offer you.
Plants, Foliage and Arrangements
Many homes feature various plants and foliage nearby or surrounding fences, whether we’re talking about some basic plantings or a full-on garden you maintain each year. There are numerous themes to consider here, whether you want fencing to be used as a marking space for garden elements or to be actively involved in the landscape itself.
Within the latter field, many look to utilize the height offered by a property fence. You can include items like trellises, planter boxes, hanging baskets and even climbing vines to bring foliage and natural elements to your fence, often as an extension of the plant life at ground level. Some people even use this theme to help dampen noise from a nearby roadway or a loud neighbor – heavier trellises can accomplish this purpose easily and make a significant difference.
And if you’re thinking of something simpler, you can always arrange flower pots and boxes atop or alongside your fence for additional aesthetics. There are both temporary and permanent installation formats possible here.
Another great visual use of a fence on your property is to serve as a lighting fixture, making your yard accessible and enjoyable during both the daytime and nighttime. There are a huge variety of lighting formats available here, ranging from those that will be virtually invisible during the daylight to those that will transform the look of the entire space throughout the day.
Common options here include fairy lights or long-string lights, which can be used to create shapes or designs if you choose. Others prefer spotlights, which remain off during the day but can be switched on at night. Still others might use candles in mason jars for a more traditional look.
Creativity and Imagination
While we’ve laid out several popular fence personalization themes in this series, it’s important to remember that your options here are virtually limitless if you’re creative enough. A fence is a versatile space that’s all your own when it comes to accessorizing, and you can get as adventurous as you want if you’re willing to put in the time.
