For a little more tradition, this black metal fence with a myriad of circles cut out is perfect. It lends some serious style to home security, but not at the detriment of the wider aesthetic.
There is some serious artistic talent on show here, as the leaf design continues seamlessly across all of the fencing panels despite them being individual pieces.
These multi-strand fencing designs are blowing us away, as they look so complicated to make! This one has been finished in a soft rust-brown hue that blends with the home, but still screams 'do not cross'.
The design of this fence makes you think you'll be entering a tropical paradise on the other side if you have an invite. Such a great way to interject some bold design into you garden!
