There are a number of things that you can try when wanting to decorate your backyard. A few people may plant striking flowers and other people might put together something exotic. One thing that appears fun in almost any garden or lawn is a garden canopy. This appears like a kind of awning or gazebo that aids to shade individuals from the sunlight.
You'll find most pergolas will not keep you dry in a rainstorm, but that's not their job. This open, breezy structure is an architectural feature that helps define your outdoor space. It can serve as a frame to drape showy climbing vines such as wisteria, clematis or climbing roses for a spectacular garden showpiece. A long skinny pergola provides the perfect framework for a fountain or sculpture. A pergola can also line a walkway or cover a garden bench. It is perfect for poolside shade or as a privacy screen by the hot tub or jacuzzi. It not only defines your space, a vine covered pergola can protect you from the harsh sun or nosy neighbors.
Arbors and pergolas can be either functional or purely ornamental. If using an arbor for a functional purpose, consider adding a bench or swing to create a cozy nook for sitting and enjoying your garden. Large pergolas can be used as an overhead cover for a deck or patio. While the top of the pergola will probably not keep out rainwater, it can be designed to cast much needed shade on your outdoor seating area. Arbors and pergolas with lattice sides and tops can also provide a supporting structure for vines and climbing plants. Consider planting a climber like clematis, honeysuckle, or trumpet vine at the base of your arbor or pergola to create a beautiful floral focal point in your landscape.
The next time you build a fence give some thought to security. Absent a chain linked or iron fence with barbed wire or razor ribbon on the top, the best fence is one that you can see through and one that is difficult to climb over. As a practical compromise between privacy and security, consider a solid fence topped with a trellis. As an additional line of defense consider planting some thorny bushes on the inside and on the outside of the fence. And, just in case the intruder makes it over your fence as he creeps up to your home with thorns sticking in his flesh, your Invisible Barking Dog alarm (or your real dog) will likely scare him away.Finding The Perfect Fence and Fencing Contractor For Your Home
