I. A NATURAL WALL: COMBINATION BETWEEN PLANTS & ROCKS
If you are into a privacy fence in the combination of hardy from stone and soften from wood, you can absolutely enjoy both of that ideas.
A carefully-designed wall is made from rock that not only is more solid and substantial on the surface but also provides adequate privacy fence, as well as security to your house. Adding more plantings which include some flowers or shrubs enhances the beauty and value of the fence. This fence feature transforms and combines completely all the parts of the wall and grown plants into a wonderful place.
Plantings soften the hard rock of the wall and make an architectural design with a green life to the privacy fence. This fence design will hide the rock wall, redirect sound away so that the sound will be absorbed instead of being reverberated. These plants should be maintained in the raised flower beds covered around the privacy fence to create both visual and sound privacy.
II. POOL PRIVACY FENCING
If you plan to install a pool area or already have it in the backyard, your pool definitely wants a privacy fence along with the stone fountain to block it from the prying eyes of neighbors, especially street-passed people. There are endless ways for homeowners to customize by their needs, however, a pool privacy fencing doesn’t need installing too tall due to your vision angle which is lower than water level. This water feature is used to add privacy and the benefit of water sound to your swimming area with your beloved people!
III. CONCRETE FENCE WALL
Other materials like wood will bring more excitement for homeowners and cost less, however, they last in a short life and require a big effort to maintain and need replacing periodically. That’s why a precast concrete fence is recommended to you! A concrete privacy fence is resistant to the rigors of other agents like weather, harsh temperature, winter storm, etc. that is more superior to other elements of materials.
You can take a look at the SimTek stone fence which is sound-proof and more affordable than other traditional concrete privacy fencing. There are several colors and tall options of concrete fencing (include 6′, 8′, 9′, 12′, or 16′ tall) available at any fence installation company. The concrete walls will be pre-built and shipped to your house to finish installing and committed with a lifetime warranty.
You don’t need to spend a lot of time and effort maintaining the concrete privacy fence because of its low maintenance that can provide a beautiful landscape through many generations and create extreme protection.
IV. CURVED STONE WALL
A curved stone wall brings more elegance to the home’s value than just a straight wall. A privacy fence with curved designs creates a feeling of enclosure which defines the patio seating area in the backyard and provides enough seats to block the outside view.
The curved flagstone walls include some common stone types such as granite, quartz, and limestone. The gracefully curved fences with gravel backyard patio not only add privacy to your property but also create the flourishing style of the landscaping value.
V. LIVING STONE FENCE: OUTDOOR KITCHEN AND COVERED LIVING ROOM
An outdoor living space gains bonuses by its airiness due to not being confined by four-side walls. However, to add privacy to your home, you should consider adding a single privacy fence with the roof above. Careful planning of the wall installation will block unsightly views without affecting the already feelings of the outside living room.
If you plan to install an outdoor kitchen with privacy fencing, make sure you provide enough safe area to leave your kitchen appliances or grill out of the attack of winter snow or rainstorm. Build a special shelter for your kitchen area along with a sturdy metal roof. You can also add weather-resistant curtains to the well-made stone fence for a touch of romance. Up to your needs, these curtains might be easier to control when drawing them to block neighbors’ eyes, or tied back to show off the view.
When choosing the curtains, remember to check the fabric that is mildew-resistance!
VI. LOW STONE PRIVACY WALLS
If privacy elements are not a high priority of your backyard plan, a low stone wall should be installed followed by your needs instead of higher walls. This is because the cost of a low fence is more affordable and the wall is easier for anyone to install. Moreover, with low stone walls, there are more choices of shape, design, and style if you’re in terms of appearance than avoiding “prying eyes” and blocking the view sight.
For example, a dry-stone fence will allow you to construct due to its structural integrity with a low wall. But above a certain height, this design will prevent you from being able to install. Pots and containers can also be added to the low wall styles and top the walls.
Why Should We Opt Stone for The Installation of Privacy Space?
Stones have become so prevalent nowadays in the use of privacy fences for natural landscaping purposes. In more traditional architectural design, the wood fence or picket construction has been used for privacy walls. These constructions define your property boundaries, however, they can not prevent prying eyes from curious into your daily activities. The stone fence will provide more privacy and better protect you from the noise of neighbors.
A solid stone fence is a significant barrier that burglars might not target your properties in purpose, bringing more safety to your yard and family.
The Difference between Stone Privacy Fence and Stone Privacy Wall?
Both walls and fences also provide safety and security to our yard. However, in traditional, a fence could be known as a “wall” which can be seen through mesh or blank space, while a wall is more solid with 100% private.
With the stone privacy fences, this definition seems to not be suitable that it requires to look more like a wall than the old fences. Stone fences are more designed for privacy like other stone walls, but interspersed with wooden parts or ornaments. Because of that, the term “stone fence” is more appropriate than just “fence” or stone wall.
A last important point when building a stone fence is the consideration of an iron gate. This will make the way coming to your home much easier than blocking all the views of your landscape. An iron gate will be one of the best choices which maximize durability and security.
Or you can consider a wooden gate with natural stones and styles. the wooden gate is combined with the hardy of the stone creating smoothing senses to open and close than the traditional one.
