Decorative Fencing for Your Garden
Around Britain today, one can see a huge array of different styles of wooden fencing. Some are simply for security purposes, some for decorative. So what different options do you have and where is a good place to start?
Coupled with beautiful flower beds and tree arrangements, a decorative wooden fence really sets off a garden, becoming the most visible feature to all who reside there.
Making the right choice about what design will adequately match your garden is a surprisingly difficult task and some people end up with miss-match gardens and fences.
For the environmentally conscious gardener out there, bamboo is a great option. Bamboo is not really a wood at all as it shares the same family as grass. This means that once the bamboo has been cut, it can literally be a matter of days before the mother plant is back up to its original height. One of the downsides to bamboo is that it can actually be quite difficult to maintain; keep this in mind if you don’t have too much time on your hands.
Another option for decorative wooden fencing is the split rail fence. This kind of fence is very easy to install and can actually be fully constructed in just 24 hours. The split rail will actually add a classic country look to your estate but beware; the wood used by a lot of companies actually has a tendency to rot, so ask questions before you buy.
The best way to go about choosing a decorative fence is to actually ask local suppliers for advice. Don’t go in with the intention of buying on the first day; talk to a professional and they should be able to give you all the advice needed on how to make your garden look wonderful.
