Three Unique Design Ideas To Get More Out Of Your New Wood Fence

by Nicholas Jenkins

If you are planning on having new wood fencing installed around your home, there are many different things that you can do with wood. For example, a wood fence can allow you to add design features that give you practical uses for your fence. You can built things like planters and bench seating that are built right into your wood fence. Here are some unique design features that you may want to consider adding to your new wood fence:

1. Giving Your Fence Green With Planters And Vertical Gardens

If you want to have more green space around your home, adding features to your fence can help bring your landscaping to life. This can be done by adding planters that are integrated into the fence. They can be recessed to make them appear to be part of the fence. They can also be part of the fence by using planters that are attached to the fence for a vertical garden where you can plant vegetables and colorful flowers to give your fence color.

2. Adding Seating To Landscaping With Built-in Bench Seating

If you have a problem with not having enough seating space in your yard, you may want to consider integrating bench seating into the design of your fence. The benches can be part of your fence, and even have an ergonomic design to give them a unique look and comfort. You may want to consider using the planters and vertical gardens with the bench seating to create a natural area to meditate or relax and read a book.

3. Giving Your Outdoor Area Shade With Arbors And Structures 

If you have a backyard area that gets a lot of direct sunlight, you may want to consider adding shade by building structures like arbors. These structures can be part of the fence design, which will help to give it structural strength. If you are going to be doing things like meditation areas with gardens and bench seating, the addition of structures like arbors can allow you to make these spaces more private and secluded. Structures can also help to separate different areas of your landscaping, which can be used to create areas with different themes.

These are some practical features that you may want to consider adding to your new wood fence. If you are ready to have a new fence built, contact a wood fence contractor and talk with them about adding some of these features to your design.
