Wicker fences

Before, without a fence, decorated with a string of cracked and dented clay pots, almost no Ukrainian court could manage. Harmonized the fence with a hut, finished with clay, with small windows and a thatched roof. To independently make a wicker fence, you will have to go to the forest for supplies of materials. To work will need wooden posts that will hold the whole structure, and flexible bars. The latter is best cut off from willows or birch, as their branches are difficult to break, which ideally fits the fence. To build a durable construction use metal posts for the frame.

If you want to repeat the original Ukrainian fences, it is better to use a tree. The leader among wood for moisture resistant is larch. Its water not only does not spoil, but also hardens. Bars at equal distance from each other dig into the ground. Then proceed to the most laborious process - weaving. Purified from small twigs of vines begin to braid the frame. The first branch is allowed on the bottom. It is fixed with wire to the frame or slightly dug into the ground. Vines in subsequent rows hide their tips in the previous ones. Wire fix them only at the points of contact with the frame.

Pots on the fence

If you choose not from what, you can take the rods of maple, cherry or poplar. In terms of flexibility, they are inferior to willow and birch, but as an alternative they will do.

Definitely a tree is considered to be the most popular materials. The easiest way to use the fence (boards of the same thickness). After installing the fences, they are varnished or painted in accordance with the rest of the composition. Fences from logs are considered more reliable and durable. They are stacked on each other, as in log buildings. Organically, logs look on the sites, decorated in the traditional Russian style. Colorfully and naturally look hedges from a slab - extreme boards from logs with one convex side (sometimes with remains of a bark). The option is suitable for forest and eco-styles.

Stone, brick, concrete

Brick and stone, like wood, belong to universal materials, which can be "adjusted" to any exterior and landscape design. Such structures are characterized by monumentality and stability. Neither rain nor snow construction is not terrible. Over time, the brick may begin to crumble, but even this problem can easily be corrected with the help of special protective corners. No special care for the fence is not required. In addition to the brick standard brown and white colors, you can buy a yellow or pink version. Some prefer to choose a shade to their liking and paint the finished structure themselves. The paint will crack with time and the layer will have to be changed to a new one, but you can experiment with the color solution.

When erecting a stone or brick enclosure, beginners may have problems primarily with the foundation. It should not only be stable and reliable, but also smooth, so that the whole construction does not look like an untidy samodel. Concrete as a basic material is not often used. It will not be possible to build a fencing of it yourself. It is bought in ready-made form in specialized stores. The same type of construction modules are molded and can repeat the ornate decorative fences with which the possessions adorned during the reign of the classics. They are decorated with stucco molding, curls, complex relief compositions, miniature columns. Concrete fences can simulate brick and stone masonry.

Metal and gabions

Constructions of metal have always been strong, but they are not eternal. Constant contact with the environment provokes corrosion and rust formation on the fence surface. Special paint will help if not completely prevent, then at least suspend this process. On average, the lifetime of the metal fence will be up to 40 years. Usually, forged compositions are used. The exclusive result of handmade smith will cost a pretty penny. If the fence will be executed according to the sketches of the customer, then the price will still grow by a factor of one and a half. It's easier and cheaper to buy stamping. But then do not be surprised to see similar barriers to neighbors and friends in cottages. Metal fences perfectly decorate the garden-garden area. They do not prevent the luxuriant growth of plants, but serve as an actual barrier, through which it is not so easy to swing. Organic look kits when forging on the railing of the gazebo echoes the ornamentation of the fence.

As for the gabions, they were originally used for military purposes. They were baskets of metal rods that were hollow. The interior of the frame was filled with earth or stones and this structure was strengthened by trenches. They perfectly protected from stray bullets. Now the gabions have less "belligerent" vocation. In civil life, they decorate the country plots. Inside the metal frames are still falling asleep earth or stones (about the same size). The gabions themselves are mounted on each other or aligned in a "line", depending on the required height and width of the fence. This decorative element looks quite extravagant and original.

Of the gabions, not only fences are added, but also terraces, porches, even stairs. It is enough to connect the imagination and the stone array can "grow" anywhere and get the most bizarre outlines.

Glass and plastic bottles

Plastic refers to cheap and popular materials. Bottles from it are usually thrown into a trash can without regrets, and after all they can be adapted to create a fence. Plastic bottles are cut off by bottoms and threaded on two containers on metal pins, stretching them through the neck. The bottles are positioned in such a way that they touch each other with narrow ends. Then the pins are dug into the ground and make a solid plastic "palisade". This option is the most primitive. To create a more complex design, you need a metal frame frame with vertical rods inside. From the bottles cut off the neck in the area of ​​their expansion. These parts of the container thread on the pins and fit tightly to each other. Then the rods are placed in a frame and fixed. Decorative plastic fence is ready. Some thread bottles "along" the length, and have the bars horizontally. More interesting are the options for decorating flower beds and patches with glass containers. It would seem, how can such fragile material be used for such purposes? The secret of the design reliability in the fastener. For this purpose, a cement slurry is used, which tightly fixes the slender glass rows. Some craftsmen even manage to build houses from bottles, and there are constructions for years. So, to begin with, a foundation is put on the site. After drying the base on it in a row, spread the bottles with bottoms in the direction that will be the front. Then the first layer is cemented and the next layer is laid out. And so on until the desired height is reached.

For those who do not want to mess with mixing cement mortar and laying glass rows, a simpler version is more suitable. It is temporary: bottles are simply digging into the ground with their necks down.

Car tires

From old automobile tires it is possible not only to build swans with straightened wings, but also decorative fencing. Old tires either stack one on top of another in staggered order, or dig into the ground halfway. If the material is small, then the tires are cut in half and only slightly sprinkled with earth. To make the composition look more neat, the black rubber is painted in suitable colors, which will blend in with the tone pattern of the site. For example, the fence protects bushes with delicate red roses, then for the fence itself choose either white or pink shade. These colors emphasize the refinement of the flowerbed.

Decorative garden fences for own flowers

Before you start creating a fence with your own hands, you need to draw a drawing on the cardboard. Consider the design features of the barrier and draw an approximate image of it. Then it is necessary to make appropriate measurements with the help of a tape measure. Multiplying the length of the hedge by its expected height, you can approximately calculate the consumption of material and stock it for future use. By the way, as a basis can act not only bottles and tires, but also polycarbonate, any kind of plastic, ceramic tiles, pebbles, old plates and pots. Virtually any unnecessary, but relatively strong items, which are abundant with excess, can become the main material. Do not forget to use skeletons. They will be needed for flexible and pliable materials that can not hold their own form. When building a fence, be sure to use the level. It will help to level the fence during the construction phase and to avoid obtaining skosobochennyh structures.

Without decorative fences, the site can do without, but it will still lose a bit of beauty and sophistication. Some garden paths and flower beds for the separation of different sites will clearly not be enough. Such conditional boundaries need a voluminous addition that will rise above the ground. The fences, painted in white, organically look at the background of green lawn. Brown tones and shades of wood perfectly underline the beauty of any flowering shrubs. A black or gray forged fence will add elegance to the site. Organically, it looks next to the closely cropped trees. Constant companions of decorative hedges were street lights, which illuminated the path of the late-timers. Interesting are the compositions from the "living" arches and low fences.
