Tips for decorative fencesA decorative fence can make a property more appealing and attractive, while offering the owners a certain amount of security and privacy. An ideal decorative fence has to be good-looking, but also practical and below there are some ideas about how to achieve this.
Picket fences represent an appropriate decorative element, setting a tone of suburban bliss, but they don’t provide such a high security. They can be easily climbed upon and seen through, but if your main goal isn’t security, they are a good choice.
- Stone walls
Their height affects their tone and their function and are low-sung or several feet high.
A low stone wall has a rustic countryside air, sets the limit between a private and public property and allows people to look upon the property.
For those who want increased security, a high stone wall gives an air of exclusivity and differs from a picket fence because you can’t see through it or above it.
They resemble the stone ones because they provide the same imposing style, but these can offer security without completely blocking the world outside.
For the light and air to pass through, you need to choose a short wrought-iron fence. This discourages intruders from walking in, without seeming like a fortress.
- Living fences
Living fences put in balance the amount of security and the decorative aspect. Nowadays, more and more homeowners grow tree fences, bushes or shrubs which can be trimmed to fit their tastes and preferences.
A low, thick hedge discourages intruders by its modest appearance and it also allows the owner to talk with somebody face-to-face.
The main disadvantage of these fences is that they require a high maintenance.
- Wood and vinyl fences
Wooden fences are popular. They have panels, planks or some have posts which are connected by parallel horizontal pieces.
The vinyl ones require less maintenance because they don’t stain or seal so fast.
