Fencing For Landscaping Purposes

There are many reasons why a homeowner may decide to have a fence installed around their home property. Some reasons include things like security, privacy, and containment. However, another common reason many install fencing is to enhance their landscape. This article will focus on fencing for the purpose of adding to, or complementing, the landscape around your home. Here is more on this topic:

A picket fence can nicely decorate the yard

One common type of fencing many choose when they want to decorate their yard with a fence that isn't very tall or imposing is a picket fence. While a picket fence can come in any color of your choosing, white is the most common color used, with natural wood also being a popular selection. Picket fences are generally made from natural wood or from vinyl fencing that looks like wood. 

A wrought iron fence can add elegance to the landscape

While wrought iron fencing is commonly used for security and/or containment reasons, it is also very common for someone to want wrought iron fencing just for its look. In fact, some people will have a partial wrought iron fence put in along just one or two sides of their yard that are the most visible from the street, so they can take advantage of the style it offers. These fences offer many customization options, so they can work well with the landscape. An aluminum fence can be used instead of wrought iron, and it can offer the same look. 

Stacked stone fencing can be used in many ways

Stacked stone fences are another great way to go when looking for a nice addition to the landscape. They can be stacked short or tall, and they can be put around the whole property or around specific areas. They can be nice additions around ponds, flower beds, and gardens. 

Stone or brick columns with wrought iron fencing

Another thing some people like to do to add a touch of elegance to the look of the yard is to put up stone or brick columns with wrought iron fencing between them. This is a type of fence that can be used for all the other fencing purposes, but it is also one that is often put along one side of a yard strictly for visual purposes. Some people also like to use this type of fence around their rose garden, because it can look wonderful when used for this purpose.
