Useful Tips And Ideas For Landscaping Along The Fence Line

 

Having a beautiful, manicured, and healthy lawn means not just working on certain areas of your yard. Your outdoor space will look more appealing and organized if every area looks designed, tidy, and nothing is barren or disregarded.

As such, if you want to have the perfect lawn, you also have to work on beautifying some areas that you normally wouldn’t pay attention to such as the fence line. Many property owners think that their fence would be enough as an additional enhancing outdoor feature. But with the right plants and some landscaping tips, you can have an even lovelier fence line.

Below are some landscaping tips and ideas you can consider for improving your fence line:

• Before starting to plant along fence the line, make sure you remove any brush and debris on the area. This means removing weeds growing along the privacy fence. You can use a weed trimmer to cut down weeds and grass next to the fence.

• Aside from planting ornamental plants, the area along the fence is the ideal location to grow long, narrow vegetable garden beds. The edible garden will decorate and improve the look of the area while making the space functional to produce your own food.

• If you want to cover some of the wooden fence’s parts (especially the old, rotten ones) plant vines, like bougainvillea or trumpet vine along the base of the fence. These vines will naturally grow up the fence to add color to your fence and at the same time, soften the look of the wood.

• If you want to grow plants along the fence line, grow tall ornamental grasses, such as cape thatching reed or muhly grass, along the area. When they grow, they will fill out to cover a large area of the fence while adding movement and texture to your outdoor space.

• To have blooming flowers near your fence, plant ornamental grasses with flowering perennials such as poppies or hydrangeas. You can also consider growing flowering herbs like chives and lavender since they work great for different types of border gardens.

• You can also consider planting pots. Place large, decorative pots along the fence line. Make sure you pace the pots evenly along the privacy structure. To add color and boost visual interest to the area, grow a variety of plants in one pot.

• Lastly, to improve the look of your fence and outdoor space, you can also hang decorative garden fixtures such as metal lanterns as accent pieces. However, make sure you choose only lightweight garden decorations that won’t cause the fence to sag or lean and screw the pieces into the wood securely.

Check for company references. A legitimate landscaping company can offer you a list of references as well as customer reviews for their work and price. Checking for their references will allow you to compare for their previous year’s job performance that are of equal or greater dollar value than your current project.

One of the things you need to consider is the company’s and staff’s personality. You will be working with the company for days as well as in the future for maintenance works, so it is important to choose ones that you are comfortable with. Working with a company that is easy to approach and contact, has good communication skills, and has the patience and understanding of your needs, as well as the creativity to bring your ideas to reality is important.
