Many of our customers build fencing for practical reasons only. They need to keep their pets contained, or want to add a security measure to their home. However, fencing is so much more than a practical feature of your backyard. It is a way for you to showcase your personal style and make your outdoor space a place of tranquility.
Not only should you customize your fence style, but you should consider decorating it with flowers, vines, or other elements to make it your own. Adding climbing vines or a planter box to your fence can make it seem as if your backyard is teeming with life, and is a simple way to add to your garden with little effort.
Benefits of Fence Plants
Flowers and climbing vines are an excellent addition to your fenceline when taken care of. Below are just a few of the benefits of adding plants to your fence design:
- Add depth and dimension to your fence – Hanging planters and vines will make your fence look more lively and add some texture to its aesthetic features.
- Hide imperfections – If you have an older fence that has seen better days, hanging planters and vines can help you mask some of the imperfections without completely rebuilding your fence.
- Creates a beautiful view – If your home doesn’t have a stellar view, you can make it more appealing with vines and other plants hanging from your fence. They add visual appeal and can hide views of the road or neighbor’s yards.
- Makes gardening more convenient – With your plants hanging off your fence, you don’t have to bend down to prune or care for them. Hanging planters can also prevent root rot and other problems from overwatering during the rainy months of summer.
