  1. I use a patch of my fence for a vertical garden but it’s quite dull and lifeless. I’m definitely going to use some of these ideas to liven it up a bit! The cans and bottles are genius!

  2. I love the idea of decorating a wood fence with colorful bird houses. My sister bought a new house with a huge garden, and she’s looking for unique ideas to help brighten up the area. Something like this would be ideal because it would add a lot of colors and it would make a plain wood fence look unique.

  3. I would LOVE to find good ideas for living where it is HOT in the short summers and COLD in the winters, at 4,000 ft elv. hopefully, Opal

  4. I personally liked your first recommendation where I could fill in the fence with colorful bird house decors to make the backyard garden come alive. At the moment, mine’s dull because I don’t have much time yet to fix this area of my home yet. I’m doing it one step at a time so I would probably start buying decors first, starting with the bird houses. Once everything is set, it will be easier for me to clean and put them all together where they should be.

  5. Thanks for going over some ideas for decorating a fence. You mentioned possibly embellishing it with birdhouses. I’m kind of curious to see if others have done this with functional birdhouses, especially if it could attract a lot of birds to their yard.

  6. I’m curious as to what you used to hang the bird houses flush with the fence. I haven’t heard from anyone with any ideas

    • They probably we’re hung with either a wire strung thru the inside of the birdhouse and tightened around the fence post or by an attached picture frame hanger

  7. Your idea of painting a wooden fence with different kinds of pictures and art really caught my attention. My teenage kids are very creative and skilled with art, so something like this could really help us get a unique design for our backyard project. I’ll start looking around for fence contractors that can help me get a wooden fence so I can have my kids paint whatever they want on it.

  8. I’d like to see some of the people that commented here if they did any of the projects The rod iron also I Didn’t see any directions

    Thank you

  9. I would be careful with the mirror idea. Birds fly into them and can be hurt or die. Talking from personal experience!!🥺
