Adding fencing is a delicate balance between privacy and style. Building a fortress in your backyard may do the trick when it comes to protecting your privacy but can prove to be very poor aesthetically.
For these reasons and more, a wooden lattice privacy fence is an excellent option. There is room for creativity, style, and the ability to incorporate various customization options into the design.
Atlanta Decking’s lattice fences and screens are custom built by our carpenter craftsmen. They are extremely versatile and can be used for screens around a patio or deck, as an arbor, or even as a decorative design to camouflage an air conditioner or waste receptacles.
If you enjoy spending time relaxing in your backyard, then it’s important that you design your outdoor area appropriately. Naturally, you’ll set aside an area where you can sit and relax. But the prying eyes of neighbors and passers-by can be a nuisance. And while there are many screening designs in the market, few are as versatile as lattice privacy fence screening.
Lattice screening is especially suited to nature lovers. With a lattice screen, you can relax in privacy and be a little closer to nature at the same time.
While outside, if you don’t want to completely cut off the flow of air through your outdoor space with solid screening materials, lattice screening is ideal. For instance, if you enjoy relaxing on your deck or patio, adding lattice screening will provide some shelter while allowing you to enjoy breezes on a summer day. The sound of the wind rustling through your plant-covered lattice privacy fence can be soothing.
One pleasant aspect of lattice screening is the way it interacts with sunlight. As sunlight passes through a lattice privacy fence, it splits into rays that cast amazing patterns against the walls and floors of your outdoor area. This effect is especially beautiful during sunrise or sunset when the orange-tinted sunlight casts a delightful glow.
Lattices are traditionally used to create privacy, and in many cases divide yard space into desired sections. They are also the fencing of choice for gardeners because they help support climbing plants which require extra care, such as vines and roses. Star jasmine, wisteria, and passion fruit plants make great additions to lattice screens.
Of course, you don’t have to completely cover your lattice privacy fence or screen with plants. You can train your plants to grow in certain locations for the sake of privacy or beauty depending on your priorities and preferred locations. Research shows that surrounding yourself with plants can lower anxiety and blood pressure, while improving your well-being. Consequently, choosing a lattice screen for plants provides a healthy and natural benefit for you and your family.
