When it comes to using materials that are not normally used for garden fencing, there are many people that will consider split rail fences; stone fences and even unique oriental garden fencing can be made with some bamboo stalks and twine. When you consider all of the different building materials you can use, there are a variety of designs you can come up with. Bricks can be stacked or you can use trellises with climbing roses as a garden fence. Some creative gardeners will enclose their garden area with vines, and grapevines work nicely in many areas. A natural hedge can be a beautiful garden fence, especially if you pick flowering varieties or bushes or shrubs.
For those that are looking for more traditional garden fencing designs, a white picket fence always works nicely, and you can find interesting wrought iron fencing with arched gates. When planning your garden design, fencing can be an important part of making it a private and secluded area so you might want to consider your plant choices and figure out how you can make them work as part of your fencing scheme. There is no end to the varieties of plants that can form a good fence because there are many plants that offer plenty of dense cover and if you need to keep small animals out, you can always hide conventional fencing discreetly with the right plants, vines, bushes or shrubs.
If you are looking for a unique garden, you should consider unique garden fencing designs that include a variety of materials, plants and natural items. Whether you use cornstalks, bamboo poles or boulders and stones to make a border for your garden, you can add a design element, depending on the type of materials you use. Another consideration is the shape of your garden. Not all gardens need to be square or rectangle so you can take advantage of outside buildings and other design elements, such as landscaping ponds or natural creeks and waterfalls that already exist in your yard, for part of your garden fencing.
The more interesting and diversified you make the fencing for your garden, the more creative you can be with what you plant there. You just need to think of different ideas that are not as traditional or conventional, if you want a garden that adds landscaping interest to your yard and might become the envy of your neighbors.
A bamboo garden fence is a fantastic addition to any garden area. It can be used in creating a boundary between your garden and the rest of your yard space. Unless your yard is very large, chances are that your garden is very visible. Bamboo garden fences can block out messy weeds or compost piles from plain view, as well as keeping four legged visitors out.
Although there are lots of possibilities when it comes to garden fences, bamboo is probably the most inexpensive option as well as being the easiest to erect. Despite its appearance, bamboo is actually quite strong and durable. It stands up well to the sun and weather so is a good choice for any garden.
As with any natural products, bamboo will deteriorate over time and so will require some care. Applying a treatment suitable for your area and weather conditions, to your bamboo garden fence, will reduce damage.
