Decorating That Backyard Fence
April 26, 2010
Josh and I have been spending a lot of time in the yard lately. It’s that time of year! This week I plan to blog about “playing in the dirt” and beautifying your outdoor domains.
Today I’m going to show you some unique decorative ideas for your backyard fence. Just like an interior wall, why don’t you use these exterior walls to showcase art.
Here is one project that Josh put together. He added small planter boxes to the fence. Since the planters are small he planted drought tolerant succulents to the boxes since they will do better with the dry conditions here in Utah.
Josh and I love all these sedum succulent plants. They are low maintenance, absolutely beautiful, and leave a small carbon foot print since they require very little water.
We also use our backyard fence to showcase some of Josh’s ceramics. The ceramics is durable to the outdoor elements and adds a feeling of uniqueness to our small outdoor space.
Isn’t this amazing? It’s a recycled fence. You can check it out over at apartment therapy.
I also love this idea, a great use for those beautiful old window frames. Run Lori Run shared this idea on her blog.
Here’s another great example that I found at Dallas Arts Revue.
What do you think? What does your backyard fence showcase?
