In Florida, we have an endless supply of sunshine and warm weather to enjoy. This makes gardening the perfect pastime for a first-time enthusiast or seasoned home gardener alike. However, containing that garden to your property line can be a bit more tricky. If you want your hard work to be seen from the street without letting it get out of control, consider adding a garden fence to your yard.
Good garden fencing has three distinct characteristics – it’s shorter, it has spacing between posts, and it’s resistant to water and staining. You want your plants to be seen from the road, so having shorter and see-through fencing is ideal. However, you don’t want a fence that will easily rot from frequent watering or become stained as plants grow close to and around it. Below are our top recommendations for fencing that meets these criteria and will look stylish with your Florida home:
Aluminum fencing is a stately, rustic style that offers both security and a beautiful garden view. Though aluminum fencing is typically taller, it provides enough space between posts to provide enough view of your garden from the street. Plus, it is ideal for pet owners because it is not easily climbed by dogs. Aluminum is rust-resistant too, so you can water your plants without worrying about water stains.
Lattice fencing is a cute garden fence design that provides a little bit of privacy for backyards. Lattice fencing that is woven tighter can block the view partially, while still allowing the color of flowers to shine through. Plus, the lattice can be spaced out for a more picturesque view in the front yard. Your only concern will be water damage, which you can minimize by staining or painting the wood.
Wood and wire fencing
Wood and wire fencing offers the best of both worlds when it comes to garden fencing. It can be built at any height, and provides the beautiful rustic look of a wood fence without blocking the view. Wire fencing is low-maintenance, so you’ll only have to worry about maintaining the wood frame and fence posts. Plus, this fencing style works great for both the front and backyard.
