Depend on a Tall Fence

Decorative and useful hardscape pieces and plantings soften the lines of a towering fence.

  • Simple detailing, including a wide cap piece, breaks up an otherwise overwhelming facade on an extra-tall fence
  • Hung on the fence, a decorative latticework sculpture serves as an outdoor-ready, artistic element.
  • A low stone bench, with river rock collected on top and at the base, offers an additional seating spot.
  • Near the base of the fence, lights provide a safety element and ambience for nighttime gatherings.
  • Groundcover and a midheight tree soften the geometric lines of the paved seating area.

    Open Up for Privacy

    A stripped-down fence and airy plants offer subtle screening.

    • Two oversize urns planted with rhododendrons mark the transition from public face to private space.
    • The open latticework fence offers a discrete but unmistakable barrier; bright green paint and wood framing gives it distinctive character.
    • Double doors are a steadfast signal of a secluded area; the latticework details and wood inserts neatly complement the contrasting fence pieces.
    • Lacy, branching trees gracefully arch up and over the fence for a soft, protective canopy.
    • A wispy groundcover of sweet woodruff softens the space between gravel pathway and fence.

      • Use Lattice as a Screen

        A fence and carefully chosen plants insulate a side yard.

        • A clamoring vine — here, Boston ivy — softens hardscape edges and adds another layer of privacy.
        • A door is a distinctive, uninterrupted signal of a private space; fitted with a small section of latticework, it includes a decorative element that repeats the design in the fence.
        • While the fence’s woodwork signals a secluded landscape, the lattice’s open weave filters both sunlight and views.
        • Low-growing shrubs, such as a dwarf globe blue spruce, provide a way to maintain a year-round, softscape barrier.
        • A carefully chosen selection of plants and materials — river rock, patterned pavers, variegated hostas, black-eyed Susans — offers low-maintenance beauty.
