According to Better Homes and Gardens, a white picket fence is a go-to idea for surrounding a garden due to the safe design; it can be paired with a matching arbor and gate in order to add definition. Brick designs can also be paired with wood for a more complex building design or for more stability around higher-traffic areas where fencing could be damaged easily.
A white picket fence with an arbor attachment gives definition to the space but still allows unobstructed views, as it is a low fence. If the white look is too simple, vinyl provides an updated look without complication. Fencing can be bought in specific coloring, too, to avoid messy painting that may take away from the overall look. Metal can also be twisted into shapes to add a bit more fun to the overall design of the fencing, according to LandscapingNetwork.com.
For a less modern look, wooden rails held in place with a brick pillar can work as fencing. Matching the brick to colors and textures used in the patio or house can bring various landscape pieces together for a polished look. The wood railings can also be stacked tighter together to increase privacy for more reserved homeowners.
