How to Use Decorative Fencing for Landscaping

Spring has sprung and as your landscape starts to flourish you may want to consider decorative fencing as a creative way to contain nature’s version of the Green Monster. Of course, decorative <a title="Fencing" href="http://www.atgstores.com/fencing_2317.html?p=1" target="_blank">fencing</a> is not really about containment. That purpose is better served with actual fencing. Decorative fencing – or garden fencing – is more about livening up your landscape by adding depth, contour and style … and maybe keeping the neighbor’s dog out of your pansy patch. Some ideas for where you can use decorative fencing: <strong>1. Trees</strong> Many people like to add some flair to their yards by mulching around tree trunks and then adding a low fence border between the mulch and the yard. It’s an easy way to spruce up your edging while keeping mulch contained. <strong>2. Pathways / Driveways</strong> Marking pathway and/or driveway borders with decorative fencing (along with <a title="Landscape Lighting" href="http://www.atgstores.com/landscape-lights_18802.html?linkloc=tn" target="_blank">lighting</a>, for safety at nighttime) is also a popular landscaping trick. It’s also a good way to curb the temptation to mow over a pathway, which can damage the paving and the lawnmower. <strong>3. Garden / Flower Beds</strong> You might have to pick a style with closely spaced posts, but the right fence really can discourage animals from meddling in your magnolias. They also add a little charm and sophistication to the natural beauty of your landscaping design. <strong>4. Property Borders</strong> There’s nothing more American than a little “unintentional” encroachment and a nice strip of fencing is an excellent way to adjust boundary lines! Just kidding – always consult your plat lines before adding lovely fencing along property borders. <a title="ATG Stores Home Page" href="http://www.atgstores.com/default.aspx" target="_blank">ATGStores.com</a> wishes you luck in your creative landscaping pursuits.
