How to spice up your fencing this winter

The festive season is creeping up on us yet again, and what better way to stay ahead of the chaos than to plan out your decor early? When it comes to Christmas decor, many people only think about the interior of their home, with the occasional festival display on the front lawn. Still, if you’re a fan of Christmas hosting, spending time in the garden, or you have kids – why not extend the festive cheer to the back garden? After all, if you’ve got some stunning garden fence panels, why should they only be shown off in summer?

Lighting up your outdoor space 

Personally here at Welch Fencing, our minds automatically drift to twinkling lights when we think of Christmas. Nothing infuses your garden with ambience like warm white fairy lights this time of year; they’re a great base for other decor – and almost effortless. Draping fairy lights along your fencing is a straightforward way to immediately transform your outdoor space into a cosy, cheery space – perfect for chasing away winter blues! It’s an ample payoff for very little work. 

The best part about garden lights is the variety available in today’s market. You can quickly get your hands on various solar-powered outdoor-friendly lights, be it fairy lights, ground lights or even lanterns, so you won’t even have to worry about plugging them in (even better!). 

Embrace a natural approach to facing decor

When creating the perfect festive decor, it’s easy to feel the pressure of buying new decorations every year, which can be pretty expensive. However, incorporating nature into your decorations is a more affordable and eco-friendly way to ring in the season. Holly, fir wreaths, pinecone garlands, and winter foliage all look as beautiful on garden fence panels as they do on the mantel, and they can be easily and cheaply sourced every year – or even handcrafted for a fun family activity. Using natural materials, you can get all the beauty of new decor and remain mindful of your budget while achieving a timeless and beautiful winter aesthetic.

Style the bottom of your fencing with some winter plants

Take your natural festive decor even further by strategically positioning some stunning potted winter plants at the base. We suggest mini spruce, pine or holly varieties of trees/bushes, as they create a visually appealing and classic winter backdrop – plus the harsh winter chill won’t bother them!

Just make sure that your chosen pots are as sturdy as they are stunning to keep the wind at bay. Create texture by choosing pots of different heights and arranging them together! Adding lights to your pots can create a charming mini-Christmas tree effect.

If you prefer a pop of colour in your winter decor, you can plant pansies, winter jasmine, and heathers to infuse your landscape with seasonal charm. These resilient flowers thrive in colder temperatures, adding vibrancy and texture to your stunning winter garden!

Now you’re all set for your winter garden decor! However, before decorating your fence, it’s always wise to first ensure it’s structurally sound. That way, you don’t risk losing a panel to bad weather and wasting all your hard work!
