Ready to build a fence? Skip the metal and wood and learn more about the many benefits of a natural fence for your landscape instead. Although you must be willing to spend the extra time or money to keep your natural fence healthy and strong, it can provide profound advantages compared to traditional fencing.
Natural Beauty: Even the most well-crafted wooden fences do not compare to the beauty a well-maintained natural fence.
A Way Around Local Bylaws or Ordinances: If you have a strict bylaw about the maximum height of your fencing, a natural fence can literally “overcome” these rules. Building a natural fence from a plant variety that upon full maturity can exceed the maximum heights allowed for a traditional fence can be an excellent solution for the privacy you desire.
Noise Reduction: While traditional fences can provide a certain level of privacy, natural fencing can often limit noise better, especially from the roadway or neighbors yard.
Wind Protection: In the same way it prevents noise intrusion, a thick natural fence is also a superior solution for wind reduction, making for a more comfortable and quiet backyard experience.
The Ultimate Eco Friendly Choice: Use nature to grow your landscape barrier and define your property borders. It is truly the ultimate in eco-friendly fencing.
If a natural fence sounds like a good option for your home, ask a professional landscaper about the specific plants or trees that would work best to carry out your plan. Factors such as soil conditions, drainage and sun/shade zones should all be considered. Choosing the right natural fencing materials is critical to your ability to enjoy the above mentioned advantages. Leyland cypress trees and Bamboo are common choices and typically provide excellent fencing for most landscapes.
