Most gardens have boundary walls and/or fencing. Sometimes these areas can be difficult to improve and make visually more appealing. Common solutions tend to focus on planting climbers or large shrubs with the hope that these will in time smother or hide the problem. However this can be a temporary solution as often the level of plant maintenance involved especially for controlling vigorous growing climbing plants can be a daunting task. Eventually the problem becomes much bigger to manage than the original!
But how does one turn a potential eyesore into a feature point? A popular solution especially in urban gardens is to install a custom built fence to provide a clean and effective screen. The premier choice is timber slats and timber cladding (shiplap). Both options provide very effective solutions to conceal unsightly walls or existing fencing panels. The neat and optional painted finish creates very impressive results.
