A friend of mine mentioned that she wanted to replace her backyard fence and it got me thinking about alternatives to the boring stockade fence so I researched some options out there. You certainly don’t have to stick with the standard fence these days. What do you think?
Love the horizontal slats defining this fence. The smaller slats with the peak-a-boo aspect really adds dimension to this composition. From www.apartmenttherapy.com
This fence was created for a playground but what a great idea if you wanted something colorful for a small space. http://playgrounddesigns.blogspot.com/2008/04/diy-playground-fence-ideas.html
Really liking the horizontal slats. It creates a more modern and updated feel for your backyard.
Now here is an inviting option for your front yard. Love the combination of metal and wood that define this welcoming entrance. www.hgtv.com
Innovative use of recycled scrape metal. www.apartmenttherapy.com
And finally an updated vertical fence option. Good for defining your space, not so good if you truly want privacy. http://www.mendoco.com/plans-inspiration/redwood-fences/fence-ideas/
This is a great inexpensive option using colorbond fencing material which is available in a variety of colors to create your own custom fence. www.contemporarydesignideas.net
What a great mid-century modern approach. This look is very popular in South Florida. www.erwinhouse.com
Bamboo is another great, inexpensive material I would like to see used more often. By framing the bamboo it creates a cleaner, more modern fence then the cheapie bamboo fence of the past. www.justimage.com
