Adding Value to Your Fence

You just upgraded your old, rotting wooden fence to a new vinyl or aluminum one. You love the new fence, but you want to add more to it. You want a classic, yet beautiful feature without all the work. You want to grow vines along your fence! Vines are an easy, inexpensive way to add value to your fence and backyard. Vines not only create a classic, beautiful look, but also add an element of privacy to your backyard. Choosing vines that aren’t invasive can be a little tricky, so you want to make sure that the vine you choose won’t cause destruction to your fence.

Wooden Fences

You want to consider the material of your fence when you’re in the process of choosing your vine. Wooden fences are susceptible to the greatest risk of destruction when adding growing plant material to it. Most species of vines will cause rotting, cracking, and other structural damage for the long term. For the sake of cost and time, you will most like want to save yourself the hassle and grow your vines on either aluminum or vinyl fences.

Aluminum Fences

Aluminum fences provide the perfect base for your vines. Because they have an open framework and remain durable throughout the seasons, your vines will thrive as they grow. The addition of vines to an aluminum fence will also add a great deal of color. If you are looking to create more privacy between you and your neighbor, vines that grow thick within your aluminum fence will help create more of a barrier. The best types of fence friendly vines for aluminum are: Carolina Jessamine, Climbing Hydrangea, Rambling Rose, and Grapevine.

Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences will repudiate any structural concerns that wooden fences pose. Vinyl fences are made up of weather-resistant material and withstand almost anything. Growing vines along a vinyl fence will provide additional coverage to the fence. Thankfully, you will also not have to worry about any algae growth staining your fence. Vinyl is a material that is non-permeable to staining, making it easy to clean your fence. The best types of vines that are fence friendly are: Native Honeysuckle and Clematis.

Get ahead before the spring season this January. If you’re looking to add a different landscaping element to your home, adding vines will create the character that will make your backyard aesthetically pleasing. Vine are easy on the pocketbook for simple backyard decor, and require little to no maintenance. Vines present too much risk to wood fences.
