Unlock The Timeless Charm of Picket Fencing

Proudly South African Picket fence

Searching for a timeless way to enhance your outdoor aesthetics? Whether you’re aiming for a traditional, rustic, or modern look, picket fencing offers a charming touch to your home and can be tailored to any style. Not only is it a great way to partition off your garden areas, but can also be made into features that add some character to your home. 

Here are our favourite ways to turn your outdoor space into your own personal oasis with picket fencing.

Get The Most Out of Your Space by Partitioning

Partitioning will allow you to get the most out of your garden by separating your spaces and allocating specific functions to certain areas.

Protect Your Plants

Enclosing flower beds and veggie patches is a great way to protect your plants from lawnmowers, pets and rogue rugby balls without having to sacrifice the aesthetics of your garden. The fenced-off area can also be thought of as a feature, adding visual diversity to your garden.

Fence Off Your Driveway 

A picket fence partitioning off your driveway can help protect your cars, children or pets. Fencing will also prevent pets and children from accessing your driveway, as well as balls or frisbees from hitting your parked cars. We recommend growing flowers against the fence to improve the design of your outdoor space.

Get Creative With a Feature Wall 

Picket fencing provides the perfect blank canvas for your creativity! A feature wall is a lovely way to take your garden design to the next level, and they aren’t difficult to make. It could be as simple as hanging some wooden plant boxes or lightweight pots on the fence, or mounting an old bicycle to add some rustic character.

Neaten Up Your Flower Beds With Edging

Edging can create beautiful lines of symmetry in your garden, while keeping your lawn neat and your soil in the beds. A small picket fence – which you can paint to match the rest of your garden style –  will give your garden a polished look while practically maintaining your beds.

Use Your Green Fingers to Grow a Trailing Plant 

A trellis is the ideal way to add dimension to outdoor walls and spaces that are looking flat. Place your fence against a wall, let it stand alone, or create a memorable entryway by placing a pergola in between your fences. 

Here are our top seven favourite trailing plants to spark your creativity:

  • Wisteria 
  • Water convolvulus
  • Geraniums 
  • Grape vines 
  • Bougainvillea
  • Cape Honeysuckle 
  • Rambling rose
