How to Use Garden Fencing to Enhance Your Garden Landscaping

Posted on June 06,2020 by Charlie Stimpson.

Garden fencing doesn’t just have a practical use. Yes it’s great for its intended purposes - as a boundary marker, to protect your property and to ensure privacy – but it can also be used decoratively as part of the landscaping of your garden. It’s great for zoning areas of your outdoor space too and adding some structure, so don’t just think of garden fencing as purely practical. Here are a few things you can do with fencing to make it part and parcel of your garden landscaping.

Create Focal Points with Fencing

Fencing can be used to create focal points within your garden. For example, low level fencing can be used to lead up to a moon gate (a circular wooden structure which acts as a doorway into the next part of your garden). Used as a border for raised flowerbeds, this will really add a central focal point to the first part of your garden before leading you through to a secluded, second zone at the back of your garden.

Alternatively, garden fencing and trellis can be used to frame a view. If your garden backs onto fields or hills, you may wish to have some high level fencing on either side of your garden which meets low fencing at the back of your garden to allow the view to take centre stage. You can even angle the fencing at the back of your garden to descend into a point at the middle, which will really draw the eye towards your stunning vista.

Use Fencing to Zone Areas

Fencing is a great way of zoning areas of your garden. For example, you can create a cosy seating area by using low level picket fencing to surround it. Use colourful containers inside the border of your fencing, and perhaps a raised flowerbed behind your seating area and the whole space becomes enclosed and secluded.

Similarly, fencing can be used as a hard landscaping option around raised decking, which works both as a safety feature and to zone your decking and seating area. It can also be used in other zones within your garden, such as around a vegetable plot or to fence off a wild garden or part of your garden which gives way to a meadow or woodland.

Use Trellis Decoratively

Trellis is a great option for decorative hard landscaping. It can be used in the traditional sense to train climbing plants against it, or it can be used as a structure in itself. Trellis fencing can create a great square archway into a separate part of your garden, for example, or be used to enclose the back and sides of a pergola. Trellis toppers can also be used on top of your garden fencing to simply create interest.
