Fabulous Fences: Think Horizontal

By: Bidmyreno Admin | Jul 20, 2016



I’m loving what is trending with wood fencing! Not only do fences create privacy, but with a little planning and design, they can play double-duty as feature walls and backdrops. The look and feel that can be created with wood fencing is truly impressive.  

The latest trend in fencing is applying boards horizontally rather than vertically. The size and spacing of the boards are key to what takes horizontal fencing from boring to super sophisticated. When planning your fence, think of defining your space with privacy panels, section off your yard into seating areas and gardens, or stagger panels to follow uneven ground.


Light it up

In-ground lighting is the perfect way to highlight a gorgeous feature fence and create a warm and stunning atmosphere. Place exterior lighting strategically around the perimeter of the space and along the base of the fence.  Or, use the fence as a backdrop to light up bench seating, gardens and planters.


Into the Spotlight

Fencing design is as much about location and configuration as it is design and detailing. Due to the flexibility of fencing, it can take on virtually any shape and style.  Don’t let a fence disappear into the background of your landscape, make it a strong design element and create your dream outdoor oasis.
