Chain link fence is durable, very cost effective, and suitable for residential fence construction as well as security fencing for commercial buildings, parking lots, marinas, sports fields & stadiums, and high security areas like airports, nuclear power plants, and city & county governments. Galvanized chain link fencing is silver but also comes in vinyl or powder coated colors such as black, dark brown, dark green and white.
Backyard Privacy Ideas Fence Cover Up Chain-link fences may be sturdy and low-cost, but they’re not an attractive way to define property lines. The remedy? This homeowner planted burning bush along the chain-link fence separating her yard from a neighbor’s. Four years later, a lush green hedge covers the steel mesh. Other possibilities: clematis, rose of sharon, and trumpet vine. Be sure to tell your neighbor if you plan to plant vines that’ll grow up both sides of the fence.
Backyard Privacy Ideas Freestanding Screens No need to look over a chain-link fence at your neighbor’s pool — a few well-placed screens made from low-cost salvaged shutters are a shabby chic solution. Because they’re freestanding, they can be taller than fence-height restrictions mandated by local building codes.
