Corner fences are an easy way to add interest to your yard. You can set them up quickly and see instant results. Typically, you see them marking driveway entrances or framing gardens.
But there are more ways to use these L-shaped accent fences. Take a look at 5 ideas.
1. Make an Outdoor Shower
Maybe you’d like an outdoor shower for your lake house or pool. A simple way to partially enclose it is with a vinyl corner privacy fence. It’ll add a bit of privacy and contain the shower spray. The vinyl is easy to maintain and won't be damaged by water.
2. Design an Outdoor Nook
Is your concrete patio a boring expanse of….concrete? Break it up by creating a cute relaxation spot. Set up an accent fence in a corner, then add elements to make the space inviting – a couple potted plants, white fairy lights or vines, a comfy chair, and a small table. Now all you need is a book and a glass of wine or iced tea.
3. Conceal Eyesores
No one likes looking at garbage cans and other unattractive things near your home, such as utility boxes, propane tanks, and pool equipment. Use a corner privacy fence to hide those visual disturbances.
4. Shush a Noisy Air Conditioner
If your AC unit is near your deck or patio and makes so much noise you can’t talk without yelling, reduce the noise with a corner fence. The fence won’t completely block the sound, but it’ll dampen it (and hide the air conditioner, too).
5. Set Boundaries
Maybe you have an area that is hard to distinguish from the rest of the outdoor space – like a soccer field, for instance – and you don’t want to actually build a fence. Strategically placed corner fences can show visitors where the soccer field is, so they won’t accidentally park on it (true story).
The really nice thing about corner fences is that they’re easy to move if your needs change.
