    Add Privacy and Beauty

    A garden fence is a practical way to keep critters away from your precious flowers and add structure to your yard or garden. It gives you a way to clearly delineate your garden from the rest of your yard while adding a bit of personality and style to your outdoor space. 

    And while some ideas, like this beautiful layout from Brooke Giannetti, take a little more effort, others can be easily DIY'd in a day or two. This fence uses wood and chicken wire to separate the garden from the rest of the yard, and adds a focal point with an inviting breakfast table among the garden beds.

    Modern Fence

    From rustic to Tuscan-inspired, the look of your garden fence sets the tone for the rest of the yard. We love the modern, contemporary feel this geometric wooden fence from Blog Lovin' adds to the garden. It's open and airy, so the garden beds still feel like they're a cohesive part of the yard, but the embedded wire effectively keeps pests out.

    We can't get enough of this luxurious little garden from One Kings Lane.

    Wooden Posts and Chicken Wire Fence

    This garden fence from Decor It Darling adds a bit of rustic charm while working to keep the plants safe and sound. This option has a lot more height than some of the others, but because it's still open it doesn't feel boxed in or overwhelming.

    Repurpose Pallets

    If there's one DIY material that is useful in nearly every area of your home, it's the wooden pallet. Whether you're lucky enough to score a bundle of these for free or you cut a deal with the local hardware store, pallets are both a little rustic and a little modern—and very versatile. This fence from Backyard Boss adds a modern and sophisticated feel to the backyard landscaping by using wooden pallets. Paint the pallets white to create a more traditional look.

This fence adds a big dose of curb appeal to your home, especially when surrounded by bright pops of colorful flowers.
