Good fences make good neighbours. But good fencing can also be ugly and boring. Does your yard have a stretch of uninspired privacy fencing? Have you thought about perking up the fence and creating a great look for your house and yard?
Let’s look at some creative options for upgrading your wood privacy fence. The folks at Emerald Irrigation & Landscaping have great ideas – at a range of price-points – that can be ready to go for the 2022 summer backyard barbeque season.

Add a Bit of Bling

Here are several easy-to-install ideas that will perk up a simple wooden fence:
  • Install an arched-top addition to the panels
  • Add accents to plain pickets or decorative scrolls
  • Top your fence posts with caps
  • Build pillar additions or stone/faux-stone complements from the ground up
  • Add a metal lattice topper along the fence line

Stand Out with a Bit of Paint

  • Fresh stain and sealant can give an old fence new life
  • Black paint creates eye-popping feature lines to frame your yard
  • Contrasting paint colours makes an tired fence look brand new
  • Try an old-style barn look with molding or plank additions

Have You Thought of Lighting, Plants, or Gates?

For a couple more creative ideas, consider:
  • Embedded fence lighting using solar-powered post caps
  • Climbing vines and lattice work for natural, artistic yard appeal
  • Adding a decorative yard gate by replacing panels
