Attaching a trellis to the top of a fence makes it harder for intruders to climb over the fence as gripping and pulling your body up and over the trellis is difficult. Doing so will likely cause the entire section of trellis to break slowing the intruder down and causing some commotion. Additionally, I often recommend that residents plant some dense thorny intertwining bushes on the inside of the fence. That way, even if the intruder climbs over the fence, when he jumps down he will have to land in an uncomfortable thicket of thorns. Low growing thorny plants can also be planted outside the fence for additional deterrent. All of this might just cause the burglar to give up and move on to an easier target.
Make sure you look in the opposite direction of the ground also - up! Trees with low branches on your property (or your neighbors) might need to be trimmed before your fence can be built. Some might even be right in your fence line and need to be removed. Tree roots can also be a headache for the contractor and should be considered.
No matter what your choice, a pergola is a great architectural detail to add to any landscape. With a little forethought and planning, you're sure to end up with a beautiful end result that will serve as a focal point in your yard for years to come.
The most conventional color for wedding gazebos mirrors bridal gown traditions: white. White vinyl is the most popular choice for its white, smooth and maintenance free finish. Treated pine gazebos may be painted white, but cedar can also be used for an entirely different rustic look.
