Choosing a fence that suits your needs and matches the landscaping of your yard can be tricky. If you’re thinking about replanting your garden for spring, it’s important to consider how your fence may be affected by any landscaping changes. The perfect fence is one that affords you privacy while complimenting your landscaping aesthetic. Here are some tips for deciding what fence works best for you.


Fences are made to give you some privacy. A good fence is one that can provide some solitude without making you feel trapped. A short fence, for instance, can make a smaller space feel more open. A tall fence can make a large, open space feel serene and secluded. Your yard may be beside a neighbour’s yard, or maybe it faces a street, or maybe your yard is right next to a large tract of wilderness. Your immediate surroundings influence your privacy needs, so they’re important to consider when choosing fencing that is right for you.


Fences aren’t purely functional. They also serve a visual purpose by adding a kind of decorative frame around your yard. Fences can even be incorporated into the space—having plants grow up the side of a fence can add a striking dimension to any garden. Fencing shouldn’t get in the way of your yard—a good fence should enhance your yard, making it the most beautiful it can be.

Material Look and Durability

It’s important to choose fencing in a color and material that works with the look of your yard. Equally important is choosing a fence material that works in the specific environmental conditions of your garden. For instance, if you want plants to grow along your fence, you’ll need a fencing material that can sustain that. Fences shouldn’t damage or be damaged by your garden. The perfect fence visually and practically compliments the yard it encloses.
