Make a Living Fence

If you prefer a more natural look, a living fence could be the perfect addition to your garden. You can make a living fence by installing additional trellis to the face of your ColourFence and training plants vertically. This works to give your climbing plants a framework to grow over and is perfect for windy areas where plants need a little more support. By doing this you can create a point of interest at one or more points of your fence and blend an interesting mix of modern and organic design. See the image below for an example of what one of our customers has created with their ColourFence fencing.
