As much as your main focus in a garden should be the lovely plants and perfectly chosen flowers, when someone has taken the time to really think about the fencing they have in place, it stands out for all the right reasons.

The ideal way to box in your space, add a little privacy and really tie a theme together, any landscape architect will tell you how vital your fencing is. With that in mind, we've found some great styles for you to consider.

You never know, the icing on the cake that is your garden might be waiting for you in here!
