    Unique Decorative Fencing Ideas

    Last updated 11 months ago

    A new wood or vinyl fence can add a lot of character to your home, but who says you have to use the same fencing as your neighbors? If you want your home to stand out, make a statement with bold decorative fencing around your property. From bamboo accents to multi-colored lights, you are only limited by your imagination when it comes to sprucing up your new fence. To help get the creative juices flowing, here are a few unique decorative fencing ideas:

    Potted Plants and Flowers
    If you want to brighten up your perimeter fence, consider attaching potted plants and flowers along the fence line. You can install planter boxes and change out the plants and flowers based on the season, or you can purchase fake flora to reduce maintenance and upkeep.

    Lighting
    Strategically placed lighting can have a dramatic effect on your new fence. For a more casual look, simply drape white holiday lights or colorful lanterns across your fence. If you want to create a more compelling look, install outdoor light fixtures along the fence line.

    Color
    A bit of color goes a long way, especially when it comes to your perimeter fence. If you have a wood fence, consider painting every other post a different color for a fun and playful fence. You can also have your wood or vinyl fence painted one color to highlight or accentuate the exterior color of your home.

    Is it Time for a New Fence Around Your Property?

    Last updated 12 months ago

    The fence around your property says a lot about your home. After all, the fence is typically the first part of your home that people notice when driving by, so make sure that your fence is leaving a good impression and not scaring away guests or potential homebuyers. Although wood and vinyl fences are designed to last for decades, it is not uncommon to replace the fence around your property a few times over. If you notice any of the following signs, think about installing a new fence soon.

    Rot and Rust
    Over time, your fence will begin to display the damaging effects that Mother Nature has on wood and metal. Wood fences offer a wonderful rustic appeal, but rustic can turn to rot in a short amount of time if the fence is not properly sealed or maintained. Likewise, metal fences can develop unsightly rust after prolonged exposure to rain, sleet, and snow. If your fence is an eye sore, consider replacing it soon.

    Excessive Warping
    Warped fences are not only unsightly, but they are also liabilities waiting to happen. As fences age, they are less resistant to heat and moisture, both of which can cause the posts and support structures to warp. When a fence becomes warped, it does not fit as snugly as it was intended to, and it is then only a matter of time before a strong wind storm causes your fence to fall apart.

    Neighbor Disputes
    If you install a fence, it is your responsibility to make sure that both sides are well-maintained and within the boundaries of your property line. A boundary fence that is dilapidated or crosses into your neighbor’s property can cause a lengthy (and expensive) dispute. To keep your neighbors happy, and to avoid the legal fees of a zoning hearing, install a new fence and make sure to follow zoning regulations.

    No matter why you need a new fence, Paramount Fence strives to provide as many creative and affordable solutions as possible to fulfill your needs.
