As the weather is warming up, you’ll likely start spending more time outside on your landscaping efforts. If you have a wood fence, there are many options for decorating to bring in more color and energy to its look. Check out these fun and innovative ways to decorate your wood fence.
A simple yet effective way to add bright color to your wood fence is to add flower baskets. Hang the flower baskets next to each other or with some space in between to achieve your desired look. You can even paint the flower baskets themselves a bright color to complement the flowers themselves. Make sure that they have drainage holes in the bottom so that the flowers can properly drain when you water them.
Climbing plants like morning glories, clematis, and ivy are great additions to your wood fence. Use a string that you’ll stake into the ground and crisscross or hang the other end at the top of your fence. It will create a rustic and whimsical look to your home.
Mixing materials is always a great way to add some interest and visual appeal. Use metal finials at the top of your fence to achieve a stately and regal look or other quirky accessories in the middle of the wood planks, depending on the style that you’re going for.
Use iron candle holders on your fence for a stunning visual effect, especially at night. Use citronella candles or even flameless options. They will decorate your fence but also add a lighting element to your landscape. Plus, if you choose to use citronella candles, it will also help keep bugs away when you’re entertaining in the spring and summer.
Bring the color and natural beauty of birds to your fence and yard by attaching birdhouses. You can attach one near each corner or one every few posts. Just like the flower boxes, you can paint them with bright colors or in a style that matches the exterior colors of your home. Another alternative to birds is starting a butterfly garden along your fence.
