Wrought iron is often depicted as a looming, ominous presence – towering fences in front of an old mansion. However, it doesn’t have to be. This beautiful black-coated metal truly has a lot to offer. In fact, in most of its uses, it’s more elegant than ominous. Part of achieving that is shrinking it down. Instead of towering, pointed fencing, imagine a small, flowing design. Small, wrought iron fences and gates can be the perfect border to a lush, flowery yard.
Protect a Vegetable Garden
A great place to implement small, wrought iron fences and gates is to use them to protect a garden. If you have a garden in your yard, you’ve no doubt had to deal with your fair share of pests. That’s especially true if your home isn’t right in the middle of a suburb. Homes bordered by woods, plains, or other natural spaces are more likely to be visited by rabbits, squirrels, and other wild critters looking for an easy dinner. Make your garden harder to access by putting up a fence.
To prevent animals from digging under the fence, you can also bury a vertical sheet of wire or landscape fabric to act as a wall below the surface. Nature’s gardeners will simply have to look for harvestables in someone else’s yard!
Border a Flower Garden
Unfortunately, wild animals have a different opinion on what tastes good than we do. Even if you outfit your yard with flowers rather than carrots, you may find your garden getting munched on all the same. Keep your hard work from getting dug up and devoured by putting up small, wrought iron fences and gates. Not only will this keep your flower garden safer, it will also look stunning.
Custom Wrought Iron Fence Designs
One of the fantastic things about getting wrought iron fences and gates is that you can buy them in custom designs. Have your own design idea that you want to see become a reality? Let our wrought iron experts turn it into the real thing.
Remember that vegetable garden fence we suggested? Imagine that vegetable garden surrounded by wrought iron with little vegetable garden imagery wrought into it. Think of broad, wrought iron leaves, swirling in and out of vines and branches. Or, imagine little, iron carrots and tomatoes decorating your fence.
A consistent pattern isn’t necessary for a design either. You could customize each section of your fencing. Want your vegetable garden to have labels built into it? Imagine a black, wrought iron fence as a backdrop to your garden with each section labeled. Swooping, flourishing lettering spelling out “Tomatoes,” or, “Herbs” is a perfect possibility.
Likewise, your custom design could just as well be applied to a flower garden. How amazing would it be for each part of your garden to be fenced in by panels of fencing containing exactly the flowers planted in front of it?
