Mother’s Day is this weekend, and it can be very difficult to find a gift that expresses to your mother how much she means to you. Living fences or floral fences are growing in popularity and very beautiful. How can you give your mother flowers for her fence this Mother’s Day?
Chain Link Fencing
If your mother has chain link fencing around her home, it is very easy to transition to a living fence. Before you get started, think about what type of vines or plants your mother would like to be planted on her fence:
- Does she like flowering vines or leafy vines?
- Would she love an evergreen vine or deciduous vine for Mother’s Day?
- Do you want to use an annual vine or perennial vine?
There are many different types of flowering vines that grow quickly and make gorgeous blooms on living fences, just in time for Mother’s Day. Some of the best flowering vines include:
- Hyacinth bean
- Black-eye Susan vines
- Passion flower
- Morning glory
- Dutchman’s pipe
- Trumpet vine
- Climbing hydrangea
Does your mom always go for greenery instead of flowers? Some of the most popular leafy vines that are perfect for every fence include:
- Persian Ivy
- English Ivy
- Boston Ivy
- Creeping Fig
- Carolina Jessamine
- Hardy Kiwi
- Variegated Porcelain Vine
- Virginia Creeper
- Silver Fleece Vine
- Purple-leaved Grape
Planting a living fence can be a tall task, so get your brothers and sisters involved in this Mother’s Day gift if you can. Be sure to research the best positions to attach vines to encourage growth. Also, unless your mother has a natural green thumb, make sure to write up care instructions so she knows how often to take care of her living fence. While most vines are very durable and grow on their own, they might need a little extra care during the summer months.
