1. Whitewashed wood.

Painted wood makes for a pretty and neat fencing style, especially if you want to make the space feel a little larger as well.

Natural wood always looks stunning as a fencing solution and will age beautifully, turning a nice silver colour.

Whole logs look terrific anywhere, but as a garden fence, they make a brilliantly rustic installation.

Thin metal fencing allows the light to keep flowing in your garden are is perfect for simply cordoning off a pool or water feature.

5. Decorative concrete.

Concrete walls don't have to be overbearing or boring, if you choose a decorative finish.

6. Spaced-out wood.

Perfect for small gardens, wooden fencing that has gaps between the planks looks lovely and doesn't make the space feel too enclosed.

7. Gabion walls.

Boulders encased in thin wire are stunning. These gabion walls are easy to install and make for a steadfast solution to privacy concerns.

8. Richly stained wood.

Darker wood makes such a striking statement in a garden and can match your home's façade perfectly, if you have cladding on it.

9. Concrete and wood.

A low concrete wall can have extra height added with simple wooden panels on the top. It looks great too and can encourage easy climber growth.

10. Flint gabions.

Flint shards make for an unusual and gorgeous gabion wall filling! We think they are ideal for zen spaces.

11. Natural stone.

Chunky natural stone walls offer such texture and eye-catching design, especially in a small garden.

12. Artistically carved wood.

Being such a malleable material, wooden fencing can be as artistic as you are!

13. Two-tone wood.

Perfect for denoting different areas in your garden, two-tone wood looks amazing!

14. Iron railings.
