DIY Aluminum Fence is Fine, But What About the Landscaping?

Home owners everywhere are trying to figure out the best ways to bring up their property values without spending too much money doing it. These are uncertain times and they are going to remain uncertain (particularly in the housing market) for quite some time; smart choices are necessary and a DIY aluminum fence is a very smart choice. For those of you who are not too familiar with Aluminum fence, I’ll explain below.

DIY aluminum fence is inexpensive to ship, easy to install, and incredibly durable. Because of aluminums light weight it is easy to shape and manipulate during the manufacturing process and even easier to load, ship, and deliver. Being a sturdy metal, despite its light weight, aluminum is a naturally long term investment that will not warp, crack, chip, or rust over time. It is an investment for home owners who wish to add security and elegance to their home while adding something valuable to the property as well.

Once you’ve decided on your fence you’re going to want to modify the existing landscaping to suit. This doesn’t really require much, depending on your fence and property type. If you have a lot of cement/gravel around the perimeter, consider terra cotta pots, decorative urns, or pot hangers. These can often be used effectively to add some green to otherwise desolate looking areas. Grassless lawns are also becoming quite the fad and compliment an aluminum fence of almost any color or style very well. Darker fence colors can be taken advantage of by planting particularly bright coloured plants and flowers; this will draw the garden out and the fence will work as a background enhancement to its beauty. Plants with white flowers, bright foliage, and night bloomers are all ideal; and when you go into your lawn in the moonlight, you’ll get a great glowing surprise!
