If you are looking for fencing that looks natural, you need to concentrate on natural materials like wood and stone. While metal and vinyl can look amazing, they don’t blend with nature the same way as natural materials do. Nor does formal brick or concrete blocks, simply because they are manmade.
But it doesn’t end there.
To create beautifully natural enclosures using manmade fencing, it is also essential to choose designs and finishes that blend with nature. This might sound like a no-brainer, but if you paint a wooden fence a bright trendy color, the effect might be stunning, but it won’t fit your needs for a natural-looking fence.
Choice of Materials for Your Fence
Essentially the best materials for natural enclosures are those that look rustic rather than decorative. This, of course, has a direct bearing on the style of any fence chosen, as well as its finish.
Natural Enclosures creates decorative and rustic-looking fencing, most of which is made from pine or cedar. Our styles are varied and include board-on-board, saddle-cut, and shadow box, as well as captop, picket, stockade, and split rail fences. Each has its own appeal and both the way they are installed, and the finish chosen, will determine just how the fence will blend in with nature.
While paint isn’t recommended for a truly natural-looking fence design, staining and/or sealing the wood is essential to ensure it lasts as long as possible.
Stone is one of the oldest materials known to man, so this is another finish that can add panache to natural enclosures. This can be achieved in the form of a traditional stone wall, or simply by adding attractive stone columns and accents. The latter is a particularly effective way of combining natural materials together for effect.
Motivation for Building Natural Enclosures
There is a strong back-to-nature trend throughout the world, particularly when it comes to gardens and backyards. Gardens that attract nature in the form of butterflies, bees and birds have a very special ambiance and appeal. They look good, smell good, and generally make us feel good. And the very foundation of this type of garden is the use of natural materials within its confines – including natural enclosures, fences, and walls.
