Residential Fencing all over the world is different and changes due to the differences in culture. When it comes to fencing in Derby, England, close board panels are quite common, but in other parts of the country, and even the world, they do fences a little bit differently. Some actually use plants as a substitute, whereas others will use plants to improve the perimeter of the building.
Residential Fencing using Bamboo
Bamboo is one of the world’s most useful and versatile plants. Not only is it the food source for the Giant Panda, but the humble bamboo plant is used in construction, decoration and more. In some areas of oriental Asia, they even build their houses completely out of bamboo! However, we’re here for the fences. Bamboo is strong, cheap and pliable, making it almost a perfect resource for fence building. It doesn’t need to be maintained because the standard cylindrical form of the fence is retained.
Residential Fencing using American Holly
American Holly is known more affectionately as a privacy hedge, simply because the plant is so tall, thick and wide that it doesn’t allow for anyone to look through it, let alone get through or over it. The plant is quite common, but grows exceedingly quickly. It takes a lot of work to maintain these plants to stop them growing out of control, but regular pruning and shearing should keep them in check. It provides a fantastic barrier around the perimeter of the house, as well as being green all year round so it combines aesthetics and security equally well.
Residential Fencing using Clematis
Clematis is a wonderful flower that can grow alongside fences and add colour to an otherwise standard separator. It’s not recommended for privacy of any kind but can greatly improve the level of aesthetics in the area. The flowers come in a wide variety of colours and can be used either sparingly or liberally to add an extra touch of colour to your garden.
