If you are looking for a classic, appealing, and easy option for fencing, lattice fencing is your best bet. Lattice fencing is most often found in gardens and patios but can be used almost anywhere.

Being a classic style of fencing, Lattice fencing has many different uses. You can use a lattice fence in a number of different ways, depending on your needs and space. The versatility and aesthetically pleasing nature of the wooden lattice makes it a favourite for gardens, fences, and patios alike.

Before we get to the ideas of what you can do with lattice fencing, what are the pros and cons?

Pros

Pricing

With the comparison of other fencing types, Lattice fencing is one of the most affordable fencing types. Lattice fencing can be installed for about half of the cost of other wood, metal, or vinyl fences.

 

Concealment 

Around your home, whether you just have fields or trees with not the most pleasant views, you can use your lattice fencing. This is because lattice fencing is great for adding design towards unpleasing views and making your property look more gorgeous.

In the warmer weeks of the year, if you enjoy spending that extra bit of time outdoors in the garden, with your lattice fencing, you can also ensure that you are well protected from the sun with that extra bit of shade.

This is more low-cost than using a roof with all the inherent benefits that the roofing material provides. Lattice ensures protection against harsh sunlight while maintaining good air circulation.

Garden Backdrop

Throughout your garden, besides providing privacy and creating a smooth transition from one outdoor space to another, trellises can also act as a background or support for plants.

In your garden with the colourful flowering vines or blooming shrubs as well as an array of flowers and plants in your garden, they are perfect for pairing with garden trellis designs to brighten up your home.

As well as creating the backdrops for your garden, you can also use the background as separations to create partitions around your garden. This will enable you to create different areas for different activities in your garden, especially if you have a smaller garden.
