When you are choosing a natural fence for your garden, there are many different options. Choose the natural fences that made up of plants rather than a metal, wooden or plastic fence. For example, natural fences made of shrubs are an attractive alternative to wire and wooden fences. The living fences can take a few years to establish on the property, but they can last for decades, outlasting most other types of fence. Shrub fences can be grown thickly enough to hold even livestock. Romantic and useful, shrubs grown to use as fencing can give perfect privacy, act as a sound and wind buffers and create shade. Another great feature is that when shrubs make the fence, it becomes a habitat for birds and butterflies.
