"Good fences make good neighbors," says an old folk wisdom. In the past, fencing served primarily to stake out property in order to protect itself. Today, a garden fence is first and foremost a design tool with a high ornamental value. Typical of the front garden fence is its representative character, after all, it is the first thing that one perceives before entering a property.
The right fence
An irregular wooden fence goes well with the rural cottage garden
Whether opaque or transparent, the enclosure should harmonize with the property, the house and the surroundings. Tip: With window frames and fence in the same color can create a harmonious reference. Different fence types and the variety of materials (wood, metal, plastic) make the decision for the right model more difficult. Wood is a maintenance-intensive (regular Laszurstrich) as metal, but more cost-effective. Hardwoods such as oak, robinia and sweet chestnut are more durable than softwoods such as spruce, pine and fir. Fences made of aluminum are stainless and weather resistant. Plastic is also durable, but often does not look good when it's weathering.
The fence as part of the garden
Integrate the fence into the planting, so it seems alive and natural
The rural garden is best served by simple, traditional enclosures. An alternative is "living fences", which are made of wicker and turn into a green wall in the summer. If they get too big, they can be cut down again. Incidentally, uniform fence areas can be well bridged with climbing plants. And flowers that gently raise their heads behind the fence immediately give the visitor a feeling of being welcome. Farm garden plants such as sunflowers, which lean against the wooden fence, and climbers such as perennials and nasturtium are welcome in the rural garden. They conquer the fence fence, loosen up the overall picture and emphasize the rural flair.
