Patio Fence Coverup


We have a very small patio area at the moment that is surrounded by an ugly old wood stockade fence. Never sat outside because it was depressing. This year we decided to do something about it.

Started with a blank canvas of an ugly old stockade fence that I saw every time I looked out my kitchen sliding door.

Just a small patch of grass, a raised garden bed and small flower garden.

We had some some left over Lattice and I decided I wanted to create a vertical herb garden by hanging the lattice on the fence. Next we hung some potted herbs on the lattice. Thyme, Catnip, Rosemary, Sage, Mint, Dill and Green Onion.

Added bamboo fencing to cover the ugly stockade fence. Planted my Green beans, Basil, Parsley next to my old Oregano plant in the raised garden bed. Replaced small grass patch with patio bricks.

Hung some fun decorations on the bamboo. We decided to give the patio a Nautical feel to it.
