When planning summer BBQs, parties or just relaxing in your backyard, your picket fence isn’t usually on your backyard checklist. However, prioritizing your garden fence ideas can give your yard a complete makeover. Facelifting your picket fence can be as simple as a coat of paint or more involved with a complete replacement.
Whether your garden ideas are small or large, there is a wide variety of styles and materials, from wood for a classic, traditional look to metal for a modern and contemporary look.
“Unique fence designs can be created by the homeowner, not just the manufacturers,” says Leigh Barnes, expert at Jacksons Fencing (opens in new tab). “Combining fence panels with either a trellis or a fence panel attachment is a great fence idea to personalize your fence line and make it your own. It also gives you the combined benefits of different fence types. For example, using a privacy fence with a semi-rigid trellis at the top provides privacy but allows light to flow into the garden.”
