In the garage, the smaller garden panel can also be applied to walls as a means of protection from typical garage wear and usage. Light and small and generally 4 feet in height, small panels can be applied easily with nails to the drywall in one afternoon and are ideal for guarding against stains and damage from car doors, tools and machinery.
Of course, garden fence panels are also wonderful when used in the lawn. But even there, these handy panels can be applied in many numerous and creative ways to solve several common garden problems.
Better and more durable than a tarp, garden panels make wonderful shelters for various plants and areas where shade is needed or preferred. While plastic, muslin or fabric tarps can offer shelter, they are not as sustainable as fencing nor do they remain placed properly against the elements. Placing a fence panel over an area where shade is desired, offers both function as well as an interesting garden decor.
Fence panels also offer a hearty and stable trellis for many vines where the usual trellis design may not be sufficient. Vines which can grow heavy during their growth season can sometimes break or bend the typical wood slat, metal or PVC type trellis designs. A privacy panel, typically 6 by 8 feet would hold a larger plant vine for many years to come.
Stakes can be nailed to the support boards on the back of the panel and placed in the ground using cement, clay or gravel as a support feature at the base. Since garden fence panels tend to have little room between each board, for climbing vines, it's best to apply hooks throughout the front of the panel to help train the vine as it grows. If treated prior to staking and planting, this creative and interesting panel will support any plant for as long as is needed.
When planting a garden, there are many different things you can use to add to the beauty. From statues and birdbaths to stepping stones and mulch, the possibilities are endless. One thing that can really liven up your garden is adding garden fencing panels. These panels create a beautiful border around your garden which really draws attention to the bed. There are many different options to choose from when selecting the material and style of panel that you wish to use.
A very popular style of garden panel is wooden. Of the styles that you can create with these panels, the most popular is the picket fence style. This style consists of pickets, a flat wooden piece with a pointed top. The pickets run vertically along the fence while backboards are placed horizontally for both style and support. In between each picket is a gap that is approximately the same width as the picket. These gaps are what create the beautiful look of the traditional picket fence. The most popular color of this style of fence is white. A white picket fence is a very classic and simple way of adding an extra touch to your garden.
Bamboo fencing panels are also very popular especially in exotic gardens. This bamboo panel creates a very natural look around the bed. These panels come in a variety of heights so they can be used in both small and large lush gardens. The bamboo shoots are driven into the ground so that they run vertically. The tops of the shoots can be flat across or can be cut to create a slanted look.
