Spring is coming! It’s the best time to wonder some landscape design for you yard, especially in the area of your fencing. Imagine yourself walking along a quiet lane on a sunny day, surrounding yourself with those lovely fragrant flowers, which peek through the fence. You can totally immerse yourself in the spring oasis. Are you dreaming of the wonderland? Let’s get started.

What kinds of plants will be the best plants to grow along your fence line?

The purpose they serve. How easy they are to take care of.


Suppose you like your fence they are now, the style, the color. And you don’t want to hide it and just want to add landscaping to show it off. Opt for varieties of low-lying shrubs and flowering, such as Sweet Viburnum, Clusia, Boxwood, Burford Holly, Lilyturf.

Boxwood, these dense, evergreen shrubs with dainty, glossy leaves often show up in elegant, formal landscapes. Classic and low maintenance, they’ll highlight your fence without hiding it.


When it comes to an old fence or the one that you do not like the color or design, then choosing some plants to cover it up is a better choice. Tall bushes, trees, hedges, and even climbing varieties can help in not only covering your fence but also creating an entirely new atmosphere in your yard, such as bamboo, Chinese Jasmine Star Climber, Lilly Pilly and so on.

If you want a fast-growing screen to disguise an ugly fence, try bamboo. There are two different types of bamboo: invasive and non-invasive. Invasive bamboo is also known as “running bamboo” and spreads like crazy. Non-invasive bamboo, also called “clumping bamboo,” it’s easily maintained.


What if you like you fence and just want to add some beauty and color to your yard fence, the following varieties that are medium in height is absolutely right for you. They are also all perennials, which means they come back every year, such as Variegated Asiatic Jasmine, Roses, Cone flowers, Nandina.
