Fences serve many purposes for your yard, including security, privacy, and add visual interest to your property. However, many fences can look the same, and you may want to customize it and express individuality to ensure your fence stands out among the rest. Take a look at these three creative ways to personalize your fence!
Painting a wooden fence is routine maintenance, but most people stick to the natural color of the wood or paint over it with a white color. To add personality to your front or back fence, paint it in your favorite color instead! Think about how the color will match will your home and the landscape surrounding it, such as any brightly colored flowers near the fence. If your home is a neutral shade and your landscape is mainly green or brown, adding a pop of color to your fence is a great way to add personality and make sure it stands out.
If you do not want a colorful fence but want to do something a little different, create a pattern along the posts. You can paint the planks in alternating light colors, or go all out with a pattern of zigzag lines. This will not only show your personality off to your neighbors and guests who visit, but it is also a fun DIY project.
Vines or Plants
If you are looking for a more natural way to personalize your fence, growing vines and plants creates a beautiful look to your property. It will take some time for the vines to climb up and over your fence, but the results will be worth the wait. Start by setting trellises at the base of the fence and tie the vines loosely to the trellises with dental floss. Or, train the vines to climb up the fence by tying it to a post with chicken wire. Soon, your home will look as though it is surrounded by a forest of green!
