Do You Have Good Boundaries? (In Your Garden, That Is.)

Boundaries frame your garden and form its backdrop. While screens allow you to divide the garden into smaller areas and come in a variety of forms, other garden structures are works of art in themselves.

Boundary Options

Boundary options include walls, fences and hedges. Walls are an investment, making a permanent addition to the property and connecting garden and house visually. Fences are cheaper but shorter-lived; bear in mind that they will need replacing over time. Hedges take time to grow and need clipping, but form a soft, natural boundary.

Here, the strong horizontal lines of the fence contrast nicely with the striking verticals of the green sulphur bamboo.
