Decorate Your Fence? ....Of Course You Can!
Whether it's in the home or outdoors, this year many homeowners and renters will get busy
creating their own personal outdoor living spaces. Some will go "all out" with fancy fireplaces, plush seating and
stereo sound systems while others search for treasures found in antique shops, flea markets, and garage sales to
decorate their outdoor walls. Are you ready to spice-up your view?
The backyard is the new room
to the home and the coolest thing on the planet today, right now are murals painted on the fence, so
cure your craving for a backyard that blooms all-year
round with your favorite flowers painted right onto the fence. If flowers are not your "thing," then paint
whatever you want! Fire trucks, classic automobiles, airplanes, animals, a zoo theme with monkeys and
tropical plants. You're only limited by your imagingation and if, after a year or two you want something else
painted on the fence, then paint over it. It really is that simple!
When considering outdoor
decor to place on your fence you can literally place just about
anything on it, but we suggest sticking to one theme so it doesn't look like a hodge-podge of things
hanging-around. Build shelves and place red terracotta pottery on them or even
Whirly-Gigs. Or, take your plant brackets: screw them into the fence in a wave pattern
and hang five or six hummingbird feeders on them. Then sit back and watch several
hummingbirds gracefully darting back and forth, right in your own backyard.
Trellis Wall Sets - The trellis
has been around since biblical days. King Solomon used "latticework" for the windows of the temple he had built,
which took seven years to complete. The trellis actually evolved from the method of laying wood in a crisscross
pattern across the windows of the temple. Through the years different variations of height, width and style
were added. The materials used to make them have changed dramatically, too. The trellis, arbor and pergola are in
the same family - all providing beauty, shade and architectural detail to outdoor spaces. Trellis wall
sets can be used as the center piece on a long fence with added embellishments and accessories placed on each side
for an amazing outdoor art piece.
- It is believed that the American Indians from the Choctaw
tribe began the U.S. birdhouse tradition by hanging dried-out
gourds from branches (stripped clean from the top of saplings) to create nesting boxes for Purple
Martins. The Indians knew the Purple Martin would consume a large number of mosquitos and other flying insects, so they
set up poles and crossbars for the gourds to entice them to stay. Is someone in your family a birding enthusiast?
Redwood Planters - large, medium and small - will
