Garden Fence Colour Ideas

Given that our gardens feature lots of beautiful elements, it should come as no surprise that, aesthetically, our fences tend to live in the shadows of our plants. While a fence’s main function might be to simply separate one garden from another, providing a clear boundary, this doesn’t mean they have to look ugly! How you choose to decorate your fence can really change the overall look of your garden. In this article, we’ll be talking about how to do just that!


For a look that’s traditional and imposing, using a dark colour for your fence certainly works. Rather than black, think off-black shades like slate and dark browns to create a rich look that isn’t too morbid. This shade works for fences, sheds, summer houses – whatever you can think of!


Light shades work if the look you’re trying to create is more serene. Whites, creams and even light greens and browns can make your garden look fresh and airy. Also, if you’ve opted for a darker colour with your shed but you feel that you need some balance, using a lighter colour for your fence will create a gorgeous contrast.


If you want to achieve a more understated look with your garden, then you needn’t paint your fence at all! Opting for a fence with a pale wood finish will create a more minimal look and allow your plants and other features to do the talking. This particular finish looks great when paired with wooden decking, so keep this in mind if you’re planning on redesigning your garden.

Colour clash

If understatement isn’t really your style, you could go for a much bolder look instead. If you want to stand out from the crowd, why not try a colour clash? Using greens and yellows on individual panels can create an interesting effect and, if you’re feeling brave, you could even go as far as adding a burst of colour to your garden furniture, too! To do some of the more intricate painting, you may need to make use of masking tape to achieve a perfectly straight line.

Shades of grey

One particularly fun way to style your fence is to create an outdoor kitchen. That is, by shifting your barbeque next to your fence, building shelves for condiments and utensils and painting your fence a metallic shade of grey, you can create a very interesting look. You could even place a clock on the wall to complete the look – and to make sure you don’t burn your burgers!
