In a recent article, we gave you a list of the best plants to use to create privacy hedges here in California. Today, we are going beyond just plants to provide you with our top choices for California privacy fences that match various architectural styles common here in SoCal, especially those in cities like Pasadena.
California Privacy Fences
One of our favorite privacy fencing designs is horizontal boards. Horizontal boards can be arranged in a plethora of styles and come in a variety of materials. For example, you can choose how wide of a gap you have between your boards. You keep it small for ultimate privacy or allow a little bit of space to see through. That space can allow you to peek into the outside world or be used to grow a trellis. You can even create a unique design with the boards if you have something innovative in mind!
Bamboo is becoming a fan favorite here in California as it provides a bohemian vibe with little effort or maintenance. Whether you simply want to use bamboo poles or live bamboo, you can give your home an earthy, natural vibe.
Our favorite metal fence option is corrugated metal. Using corrugated metal creates a unique, modern vibe that is perfect if you incorporate any other metal in your home’s design, especially roofing. With corrugated metal, you can also create supports or ledges out of the framing, allowing you to decorate those spaces with holiday décor, lights, or plants.
Chain Link Fences
A common form of metal fencing is chain link fencing due to its low costs, durability, and ease of use. Unfortunately, chain link fences really aren’t that pretty. Luckily, there is a myriad of ways to spruce up your chain link fence, including fence slats or panels. It gives your chain link fence a newer, modern look that adds a bit of class.
