Most gardens need to be protected from the outside world. Borders and other vertical surfaces, including walls, fences, screens, railings, arches and pergolas, define the limits of the garden or the area of the garden and provide the background for the best location of plants and other features, statues and decorative furniture. Most forms of borders and barriers can be used to support climbing plants of the same or other species for decorative effect. Grille, painted with the same paint that flower beds and containers, the containers provide an excellent view, closing the patio from the neighboring garden, your choice of material for fences play an important role in determining the style of your garden. Walls can create a more restrictive view than the barriers, and to give a greater sense of isolation, taking into account that some types of hedges can invade adjacent areas. Although often fences, walls and barriers are used to ensure the intimacy of the garden, they should not distract the eye from the attractive prospects. If you have a very small garden, but with a twist, like a meadow or even tree neighbor, leave gaps in VA . our border, type "open" in the hedge.
The wall is the most solid fence of vertical surfaces, the longest life, but also the most expensive. They can be made of different materials, from traditional dry stone with perforated bricks to cement blocks or even boulders, creating a wide range of styles, from old-fashioned to state of the art. Walls serve many purposes in the garden. High walls provide an impenetrable barrier around the garden, stopping a curious glance and holding offenders, while low walls can highlight other features of the garden, the type of flower beds and a patio. Walls can also be used to hide one part of the garden from another, or to create "secret", surrounded by a walled garden. Because of the cost and durability of the wall, select materials and plan carefully. If you want your wall with age, covered with patina, choose a relatively porous material that will be covered Mature shade very quickly.
Compared with walls, fences faster and easier to build, but not as strong. Like the walls, they exist in a wide range of styles. Simple fences of fence add a sense of "home"by creating low and not very strong barrier. Wooden or stone fence, on the other hand, creates a much more solid border and this is probably the fastest and cheapest way to block the view of the garden from prying eyes. With the addition of colored wooden paint, panel fences can look very cute, and it's bright and cheerful, depending on the style of your garden.
Fences are living barriers, they easily fit into any style of garden, but it will take some time to hedge rose. They can be large, impermeable boundaries of the garden or small hedges lining the border of some of the garden area or patio. Choose your plants for hedges carefully to match the result that you want to create. Tis is a traditional plant used in a typical hedge, taking into account that the rhododendron or hawthorn create a good unofficial border. The fence should not only be green: copper beech or bright purple barberry Thunbergianthus bloom all year round. For year-round foliage evergreen indispensable. Calculate the available space and the desired height of the fence when choosing plants. All fences will require care to keep them in shape.
Lattice (trellis) less durable than the fence, but often this is the only correct option. Grille visually pleasing to the eye, it is used as a barrier and as a support for climbing plants such as roses or clematis. Like fences, lattice . to be painted in addition to or contrasting with the environment.
Lattice can be used by itself to form the screen, but can also be used with other materials. This creates a good top panel fence, extending the height of the fence without having to block out the light, and can also be attached to a wall for decoration or as a support for climbing plants.
Traditionally used to support vines, pergolas consist of a series of arches, which can be closed plants. Pergola is a great place to sit and enjoy the garden. They can be used to create shade in the Sunny parts of the garden." Pergolas can be made from wood, metal or plastic.
Like the gates or doors, arches divide one area from another, but unlike doors and gates, they are not a solid barrier. Arches are often built for decorative and visual effect: when you pass through the arch, you seems to move from one area to another.
