Whether you live in the middle of town or in a more rural setting, having some kind of privacy in your backyard is an important thing. While you could go out and hire a contractor to install a complete privacy fence in your backyard, there is a more economical and easy option: a faux ivy privacy fence. If this a new idea to you, it is likely that you have a few questions. Here are a few of the most common questions about faux ivy privacy fences and the answers you should know.
What exactly is a faux ivy privacy fence?
A faux ivy fence is a type of perimeter fencing that is woven through and through with fabricated greenery that looks just like the real thing. In most cases, the greenery is woven into basic wiring. A faux ivy privacy fence can be purchased in panels that you situate together or in a large roll that you just roll into place.
Are faux ivy fence panels easy to install?
Faux ivy fencing is extremely easy to install regardless of the type of fencing you choose. The rolled faux ivy fencing is ideal for installation over other fencing, such as a wooden or chain liked fence, and you just simply roll it out and fasten it in place. Faux ivy fence panels attach to stakes that you stick into the ground for support. Because the fencing is so lightweight, it remains stable with just a small amount of anchorage into the ground.
Why should you go with a faux ivy fence over a traditional privacy fence?
By installing a faux ivy fence over a traditional privacy fence, you will reap a handful of benefits, including:
- quick installation
- almost complete privacy thanks to the semi-solid screening
- a natural fence appeal that blends with your landscaping
Won't the faux ivy fade with time?
Faux ivy fence panels are made with highly durable faux ivy. This greenery is not like typical fake plants that you buy at the store. The leaves and vines are crafted from plastic and PVC materials that is resilient to the weather and the sunlight, and the greenery is usually treated with a UV protectant sealer that prevents fading and changes in color. Therefore, you can enjoy the natural look of your faux ivy fencing for many years without concern of it fading and looking fake due to age.
