Posts and lattice panels add dimension in your yard
Like a paneled fence along a property line, a lattice structure can add the same dimensions of height which can then be the centerpiece of a surrounding planted garden.
This custom privacy lattice structure (top right) is a great example. Using three lattice panels with four posts that are then topped by a custom pergola, we see a green garden sculpture emerge. A delightful garden fountain complements these beautiful custom lattice panels. They sit snugly within the curving wall and encourage greenery, adding further color to the setting. These elegant yard structures also promote backyard birding, making your home space infinitely more enjoyable.
There are multiple benefits of using latticework structures.
Here are just a few :
- Brings partial shade to an area
- Provides framework for vining plants
- Attracts birds for backyard birding and birdsong
- Can liven up a large stretch of flat yard with visual height and surrounding gardens
Lattice panels, when installed on walled structures, can also be used as effective privacy screens for pool areas and garden nooks on larger properties. Using a lattice structure instead of a surrounding fence can provide a more open space while still feeling cozy and intimate.
Our Custom Verde Lattice design(second right) is a great example. Sturdy horizontal/vertical lattice panels with arched openings are topped by a handsome trellis. These combine with shrubbery and climbing plants to create a natural private setting.
Posts can be used to build similar smaller structures within your front and back yard. A lamp post or a mailbox post can provide a tall dimensional anchor. The minor addition of a post can dynamically change the visual appeal of a small garden.
The St. Andrews Mail Post (pictured last right) sits at the end of a drive near a curb.
Providing effective height and garden opportunities in an otherwise flat and boring area drastically improves curb appeal.
