DIY – A better use for Chain Link Fence

While I was in Canada we explored the beautiful Ile D’Orleans which is the idyllic island in the St Lawrence where over 30% of the produce that is consumed in the province is grown.  As we wandered the pretty green roads, one thing jumped out at me that unfortunately still sticks with me.  One of the homes (only one — and I know this because we literally drove every road on the island) had a chain link fence separating the front garden from the neighbors.   It was utterly jarring and it underlines my opinion that Chain-link fence — unless dramatically and artfully altered – has no place in residential design.   A better use perhaps — this interesting project — perhaps slightly uncomfortable — but probably remedied with cushions, I kinda  like this re-use project for ugly old chainlink.  What do you think?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
