4 of The Best Garden Fencing Ideas for 2021

Posted on February 06,2021 by Charlie Stimpson.

Looking for garden fencing ideas that are not only practical, but that will bring your garden to life and transform your valued outdoor space? Read on for some top ideas for boundaries, zoning, privacy and well, just downright garden loveliness!

Garden fencing can be put to so many uses. Whether it’s for creating privacy, for zoning an outdoor space or for setting a boundary, there really are lots of ways in which you can make a feature of fencing in your garden. Let’s explore a few of the best ideas to get you inspired.

1. Set solid boundaries

If you’re planning on using your garden fencing to set a boundary between your property and the next, you’re best opting for something solid in design. Why? Well, there are a few reasons.

Firstly, privacy. If you’re planning on spending time in your garden during the warmer months, whilst it’s nice to mingle with the neighbours, you’re going to want to keep yourselves to yourselves most of the time.

Secondly, if you have pets, then solid fencing is the neighbourly thing to install. Likewise, if your neighbours have pets, then you probably won’t want to keep coming face to face with Fido every five minutes. Solid fencing will prevent your pets or theirs from becoming bothersome.

Lastly, setting a boundary should mean setting a boundary. A clear-cut divide between yours and next door’s garden is never going to be a bad thing. As friendly as you may be, it’s not always the best thing to be in each other’s pockets every waking moment.

What to choose: Solid timber fencing, such as close-board or larch lap panel fencing makes the ideal boundary divide.

2. Zone it out

We’re all spending a lot more time in our gardens these days. But just as we like to have our own space and private sanctuary inside the home, so we should enjoy that outside.

This is especially important if you have kids, or even perhaps have older relatives staying with you. It’s a great way to create adult-only zones, kids’ play areas and quiet spots for contemplation, or a quick getaway from the home office. Or even an outdoor home office for the summer months when it’s just too hot inside to be working.

A great way to zone off a garden is to use fencing, in particular trellis or decorative panels. Square or lattice trellis works well for zoning, especially as it doesn’t block out sunlight. What’s more, it’s ideal if you want to grow climbing plants and create a living wall.

Slatted screening is another option that’s a touch more contemporary. Paint to suit your taste, or hang pots or baskets for flourishes of colour and fragrance.

3. Create a feature with fencing

A great way to add interest to a garden is to use fencing as a focal point. For example, you could paint a section of fence in a bold colour, or use a patterned panel to create a feature.

Decorative fencing is the right thing for this job, and there is ample choice. From bamboo and willow to powder coated aluminium, there is plenty to ponder.

One of the best ways to create a feature is to add planting, especially climbers. Use wire or open wooden trellis to support the likes of clematis and roses and there you have a delightful living feature to bring character to your garden. Add an arch, a bench or a gate, and you’re going to be a serious contender when it comes to achieving breathtaking appeal.

4. Weave in the wow factor

Woven hurdle fencing is another great garden fencing idea that you can use effectively both for privacy screening and boundaries.

Usually made from supple woods such as willow and hazel, woven fencing is beautifully rustic and well-suited to traditional or country style properties.

The great thing is that this type of fencing can be shaped to fit curved boundaries and thanks to its open structure, it’s also wind-resistant.
