When you have a newly installed fence, landscaping around it can enhance its aesthetic appeal and create a harmonious outdoor space.
Start by assessing the space around the fence and considering your preferences and needs. Determine the purpose of the area, whether it’s to create privacy, add greenery, or enhance the overall look.
Consider factors such as sunlight exposure, soil conditions, and fence style. You can consult a professional fence installer for their input on the best landscaping options for your specific fence type.
Select plants that complement your fence and suit the local climate and soil conditions. Consider the plants’ height, color, texture, and maintenance requirements.
For example, you can choose climbing vines or tall shrubs to create a vertical garden along a wooden fence or low-maintenance ground cover plants for a metal or chain-link fence. To create a balanced landscape, incorporate a mix of flowers, shrubs, and trees.
Establish a clear border between the fence and the surrounding landscape to create a clean and polished look.
The border will help prevent soil erosion, define the planting area, and provide a neat appearance. Work with a fence installer to ensure the landscaping design complements the fence and doesn’t interfere with its structural integrity.
Consider incorporating functional elements into your landscape design. Add seating areas like benches or outdoor furniture to create a relaxing space. Incorporate hardscaping features like pathways to create a cohesive design.
