A wooden fence adds a lot of character to your DC home on its own, but decorating your fence for the season adds even more charm and curb appeal! There are so many possibilities for decorating your fence for the fall, ranging from flower boxes to metal finials for your fence posts. Continue reading for four ideas on how to decorate your wooden fence this fall!
There are so many beautiful flowers that bloom in the fall, and flower baskets are a great way to add color and beauty to your fence! Hang flower baskets over the railing of your fence or along the perimeter with bright flowers in shades of yellow, orange, and red. Any type of container will work as your flower basket as long as it includes holes in the bottom for drainage.
In addition to pops of color with flower boxes, climbing plants add visual interest to any wooden fence. Climbing plants such as morning glories and ivy look stunning against a white or natural wood fence, and will cover the fence in their bold green color. Simply use a string to attach one end in a stake in the ground, and the other at the top of the fence. The climbing plants will grow up the string for a beautiful, natural decoration.
Finials add a touch of elegance to any wooden fence. You can find metal finials in any pattern and metal you desire, and instantly enhance the look of your fence. The finials look especially great when placed on a fence with scalloped edges.
Do you love the sound of birds chirping on a cool fall morning? If so, adding birdhouses to your fence is the perfect decoration! You can paint them in any color you choose to match with your home or reflect your personal style. If you don’t love having birds close to your home, a fence is also an excellent home for a butterfly garden. Plant the garden along the edge of the fence with plants that produce nectar for butterflies, such as daylilies and goldenrod.
