I'm looking to put up fencing. Looking for unique ideas and would live plants incorporated into it. TIA
Hi ! Old doors and shutters make a very unique fence ! Also you can buy a plain wood fence and make it special. You can use a torch and wood burn a design into it like branches or vines coming over the top and painting on the leaves or flowers. Seal it with clear coat afterwards . Hand window frames with or without the glass and hand pots with fresh herbs in each of the pane areas . Or hang a variety of galvanized buckets with plants in them . Or use your fence as a gallery , my sister buys old tools and farm implements and hangs them on her fence...Or buy or make birdhouses and hang them off the fence.
Take a look at Metal Fencing Panels (Lots of Patterns) you can hang plant pots on it. or Trellis or Old Pallets or maybe a wall would be best if you WANT TO INCORPORATE PLANTS within it. Brick, Stone Clinker blocks etc.............
Pallet fencing with planters attached, or use old headboards and climbing vines.
Hi Karen: Depending on the type of fencing you have you can do wonders:) If it's the wooden privacy picket type fence, you an hang bird houses on the posts, not on top, cats will be frequent visitors, so use a roof with a pointed top about 6 inches down. Or, secure some eave troughs to the crossbars, put ends on them, of course, and use them as a planter for shorter flowers, hanging flowers or herbs. I hope this picture comes out. It's not my house, but I thought the fence was really interesting. It looks like they made planters all along the entire thing! Good luck
