When the leaves turn gold and red, the season of beloved year-end holidays can’t be far behind. So this is the perfect time of year for fall fence decorations. Décor elements can pertain to fall without specific attention to Halloween or Thanksgiving. This way, the decorations can remain at least until winter arrives.
1. Bird Boxes
Birdhouses aren’t just for your feathered neighbors. They also give the surroundings a nice visual pop. You can make your own using fall foliage colors, or construct one from a ready-made kit. Since birdhouses are made from wood, they match perfectly with the traditional picket fence. You may also elect to hang birdhouses from a roof overhang.
2. Fall Plants
Hang baskets on the fence posts and fill them with fall plants and flowers. Some varieties common in the Pacific Northwest during this time of year include:
- Japanese bloodgrass
- Japanese Maple
- Burning Bush
- Blue Flax Lily
These plants/flowers also make great decoration pieces for decks and patios.
3. Fall Fruit
Pumpkins aren’t solely a Halloween mainstay. Create your own pumpkin patch by lining the fence interior with pumpkins, gourds, and other fall crops of varying sizes. If you have a little more space, place a wooden wheelbarrow against the fence and fill it with fall fruit.
4. Picture Frames
Hanging photo frames outside is a new decorating trend. Hang frames in the interior portion of the fence and include any images of your choosing. We prefer a wooden frame, which you can enhance with your children’s fall artwork (i.e. hand-traced turkey drawing).
We recommend a fence inspection before adding decorations. A checkup from Allied Construction ensures the panels are ready to withstand the elements of fall and the impending winter. Fall fence decorations are one way to show the neighborhood that you are receptive to seasonal festivities.
