5 Fence Ideas for a More Attractive Exterior

The fence surrounding your home does more than secure your property. It also makes a statement in your yard and helps define your exterior. This dual role is why your fences must be as attractive as they are functional.

In this post, Handyman Connection® of Boise shares five fence ideas for a more attractive exterior.

1. Wrought Iron Fence

Few materials can match the sheer elegance of wrought iron. It’s one of the best exterior fence options if you want an attractive perimeter that’s also functional. They are also more durable than wood. 

2. Horizontal Slats

Horizontal cedar slats are a great option if you’re looking for a more modern and private fence style. They look great guarding a lush, green yard and match well with the architectural style of contemporary and ultra-modern homes.

3. Bamboo Fences

Bamboo fences provide a more exotic and natural look for your exterior and contrast well with both modern and traditional homes. These fences are usually made from full bamboo stalks and framed with stained wood. They work great with gardens that have a more tropical selection of plants.

4. Concrete Slats

This fence option is the more modern version of the horizontal cedar slats. Concrete slats have a smoother appearance and are more durable and weather resistant. This fence also doesn’t require that much maintenance and only needs a timely wash to restore its original appearance.

5. Corrugated Metal

Corrugated metal is a slightly unorthodox choice for a landscaping fence, but it’s a good alternative to the usual wood and iron options, thanks to its higher durability and weather resistance. It often comes with a protective coating that gives it a richer and more luxurious appearance.
