Picking Ornamental Additions for Your Fence
Fencing is a combination of function and form — though a fence’s main purpose is practical, a decorative fence can add to the aesthetic of your yard, too. At Fence Consultants of West Michigan, we take our customers’ satisfaction seriously, and that means more than offering quality fence installation services; we want to provide you with all the information you need to ensure your fencing makes you happy for years to come. Here are our tips for picking ornamental additions for your home fence:
- A classic white picket fence can be given a fresh update with matte black hardware and a decorative arbor. Vining species planted around the arbor make for a fun, lush entryway on a garden fence. Alternatively, a pergola at the top of a picket fence, combined with narrow balusters and decorative posts, create a bit of elegance.
- Elevate the look of your wood fence by adding carved post caps and placing plants at the base for colorful curb appeal. You can also change up the look of your wood fence panels by holding them in place with a brick pillar. Matching the brick to your home or patio will help give it a cohesive look.
- A bit of flora can be used to dress up vinyl fencing, too. Break up the stark look of an all-white vinyl fence with various types of plants weaved through the pickets.
- Add a bit of interest to your traditional privacy fence by topping it with a contrasting panel. Opt for standard lattice panels or create your own design with perforated aluminum panels. You could also create a niche for a window box planter to complement your wood fence and add a pop of color in the yard.
