In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the key elements to be considering if you’re selecting a fence primarily as part of your garden setup. Whether you’re using a fence to define the space, protect some specific area or any other purpose, there are a few important things to be thinking about.

At Utah Fence Warehouse, we assist clients around Layton and nearby areas of Utah with all their fence needs, including wood fences and many other options that are often ideal for gardening setups. While we went over considerations like privacy, security and aesthetics in part one of our series, today’s part two will focus on some other key elements of any fence you’re looking into for your gardening needs.

Specific Types of Plants

In some cases, particularly for experienced gardeners who have been working with a certain set of plants for some time, there may be specific types of plants that require special conditions to thrive. In these cases, it’s worth considering the potential impact of a fence on these needs – could the fence block sunlight or wind that these plants need? Could it create an area that’s too hot or dry for them?

Make sure you understand the specific needs of your plants and how a fence might impact them before making a final decision.

Access Requirements

While some fences are purely for aesthetic or privacy purposes, others may serve as an entrance or exit point to your garden. If this is the case, you’ll need to consider things like gate size and accessibility when selecting a fence type.

Similarly, if you have larger plants or equipment that may need to be moved in and out of the garden, make sure you choose a fence style that will allow for this without causing difficulties.

Maintenance Considerations

Some types of fences are higher maintenance than others, and this will vary based on materials used and other factors. If you’re someone who enjoys spending time maintaining your garden, a higher maintenance fence may not be an issue – but for those looking to minimize upkeep, this could be a major factor in fence selection.

Pets and Children

Finally, if your garden will be frequented by pets or children, make sure you select a fence that is safe and secure for them. This may include considerations like height and durability of materials used.
