What is landscaping along a fence and is it actually needed?
Creating a garden along the fence can be arisen by one of the following reasons: to balance nature and artificial; for camouflage; for extra privacy; to improve the curb appeal of the outdoors.
The typical wood fence or the picket fence needs smoothening which usually happens with plants. Other fence materials like chain link fences need more than smoothening.
They don’t offer any visual appeal and if it wasn’t for their practical and cost advantages, they would have never been one of the preferred fence types.
The landscaping along the fence is the only way to camouflage the metal fence. Some people create a garden along a fence to add visual interest to the yard and make that part of the outdoors homier and inviting.
