19 Jan 21

A humble garden fence can become a work of art with just a few simple steps.

Here are 9 easy ideas to transform your fence from boring to beautiful!

1. Planter pots
Planter beds add colour and greenery quickly and for very little cost.

2. Grab a paintbrush 
Paint a mural, some floral designs or a bright and brilliant block colour - get the kids to help add their personal touch!

You can find plenty of ideas to inspire you on Google and Pinterest.

3. Bring the Birds to Your Home
Add a bird house to attract some visitors of the winged kind to your backyard.

A fence with a bird house not only creates a bit of fun along your back fence, but can bring some beautiful visitors to your backyard.

Just put some feed in your birdhouses and watch the magic unfold before your eyes.

4. Recycle and Reuse
Recycling helps to eliminate your carbon footprint and what a better way to do this by using the bottles as spaces to grow your herbs.

Cut through your bottle and add dirt and seeds. Hang the plastic bottles along your fence and grow your favourite herbs for your cooking.

5. Mirror mirror on the wall
Do you have some old window frames or mirrors that you no longer use?

Why not place mirrors in the old frames and hang them on your back fence?

They look amazing on the fence and provide a focal point in your garden.

6. Mosaic
Tiles can add a whole other dimension to your fence, creating colour, texture and design.

Visit your local hardware store for tips and tricks on how to make your fence look its best.

7. Blooming beautiful
Continue the beauty of your garden by growing some vines or trellis fruit trees such as lemon or lime to line the fence, adding greenery and colour - it will make your garden feel like something out of a storybook.

8. Make the most out of small spaces!
Build some wooden planter boxes and place these along the base of your fence.
Great for growing herbs and small fruits like berries. This is a great space saving option for small gardens.

9. Let there be light! 
Elegant, beautiful, simple and effective it’s amazing the difference a pack of fairy lights can do.

String these along your fence. Doesn’t matter how little or big you go with this, lights can make a beautiful difference.
