ways to beautify your chain link fence

Here are 4 ways to improve your chain link fence:

1. Paint Your Fence

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to makeover your chain link fence is to paint it. You can use a variety of colors or even paint a design on one or both sides. Spray painting the metal will prevent runs or drips and make the fence more decorative. However, ensure you clean the fence and remove any rust or dust before painting it. 

2. Add Rolled Wood Fencing

Rolled bamboo or wood fencing can be added to increase privacy and hide your chain link fence altogether. Rolled bamboo or wood can be expensive and is not as sturdy as traditional wood fencing. Using it as an addition to a chain link fence, however, can add both privacy as well as an added touch of protection. The durability of chain link fence construction adds stability to the rolled wood, while denseness of the wood adds more privacy.

3. Use Slats for Privacy

Slats are another excellent choice if you want maximum privacy. Chain link fence slats also prevent children and animals from gaining entry into your backyard. Slats come in a variety of colors; you can use the same color as that of your fence or a different color. Slats can be mixed and matched to create patterns and designs.

4. Purchase Colored Fences

 Many fencing companies offer colored chain link fences. Shades of green and black are popular options among homeowners who purchase chain link fencing that has already been factory painted. There are many color choices available. A sales representative can discuss with you which ones would work well with your existing outdoor décor.

5. Grow Plants through Fence

One of the best ways to beautify your chain link fence is to plant flowers, bushes, or shrubs next to the fence. You can plant decorative Ivy or jasmine. As the plants grow, just weave them through the fence, which will add beauty to your lawn.

6. Show Your Creativity

Showcase your creativity by turning your chain link fence into an art project. Use a colorful weatherproof rope and weave it in between the mesh of the fence to create an attractive design. You can find various decorative materials at the market that will make your DIY art project aesthetically pleasing. 

7. Contact a Professional

Running out of ideas? Contact a professional fencing company that can help you beautify your chain link fence. An expert fencing contractor can help you clean, repair, maintain, and enhance your fence at an affordable cost.

Apart from these tips for renovating your chain link fence, you can use vines, different colored roses, vertical garden, privacy screens such as bamboo screening, and artistic elements to decorate your chain link fence.
