If you are planning on having a chain link fence installed around your home, it can be a practical solution for security, to keep animals in and to mark your property. Chain link materials are also a little plain and may provide little solution for privacy or a custom design for your fence. Luckily, there are many things that you can do to change this, such as using plants to cover the fence, installing screens and covering the fence with lattice wood or other materials. Here are some projects that you may want to consider to give you new fence a custom look with a personal touch:

1. Using A Green Cover Along Your Fence Line To Hide Chain Link Materials

There are many solutions that can be done with green screens to cover your chain link fencing. It can be a good place to train plants to grow, which can eventually take over and be the fence. Another option that you may want to consider is using plants that are at the fence line and grow tall to provide the cover you want to for your fence. Another solution that you may want to consider is using your chain link fence to attach a vertical garden to, which can be a container type system that just attaches to the fence and can give you a place for plants if you do not have space in your garden.

2. Install Privacy Screens For More Privacy Or To Hide Unsightly Chain Link Fencing

Installing privacy screens to hide an unsightly fence can be another solution that you may want to consider for your chain link fence. These can be installed in your garden and away from the fence, such as around a patio area to give you more privacy. You may also want to consider adding them near entrances and where the backyard can easily be seen. These solutions can also be added and easily moved to change the privacy screens according to your needs.

3. Cover Your Fence With Lattice Or Other Wood Features For A More Custom Look

You may also want to consider giving your fence a custom look with new feature like the installation of lattice, which can make it more attractive. Other custom wood features that you may want to consider are installing wood posts, framing sections with wood or making the entrance gates of your fence wood. The gates can be made by simply attaching wood fencing material to the existing chain link fence gate frame.
