Natural Fences For Privacy
If you are looking to add some privacy to your property but don’t like the idea of fencing yourself in, consider adding a natural fence.
What Is a Natural Fence?
Hedges along the front yard, evergreen shrubs along the perimeter of the backyard, and strategically placed trees are all examples of natural fences. They add security and privacy to your property, block the wind or nosy neighbors, and even can muffle road noise. A natural fence is a valuable landscape improvement that is not only functional but beautiful. If you are looking to add some privacy, natural fences are a fantastic alternative to traditional wood or vinyl fencing.
Plants for Privacy
Evergreen trees and shrubs are both great choices for year-round privacy. They are a popular choice among homeowners because of their fast growth and constant foliage. When planted close together, evergreen trees provide a great sense of privacy.
Deciduous trees and shrubs are other options when privacy in the summer is more important than in the winter. If deciduous trees are the right option, you have the added advantage of pretty blossoms in the spring and great colors in the fall.
Mixing the foliage of evergreen and deciduous trees, along with shrubs layered at their base, can also create a handsome privacy screen and even give the appearance of a woodland garden at the edge of your property.
There are so many wonderful natural fencing options out there, you can pick and choose to best suit each area's specific need. But natural fences aren't for everyone, especially if you're looking for a quick fix. Those who do have patience will be rewarded with a one-of-a-kind custom barrier that should serve their purposes better — and last longer — than any wood or vinyl fence ever could. From hedges to climbing roses to evergreen trees, natural fences options are far more varied than the selection of wood and vinyl panels. Consider what you want to achieve with your natural fence to help you decide what plant material will best serve your purpose.
