A stone fence on an 2.5-acre Atlanta estate, called Rivermeade, by Harrison Design, adds a design element without blocking views of the natural meadow behind the property. The residence has been featured on the tours by the Atlanta Botanical Garden and The Cultural Landscape Foundation, and was featured on a TV show, Tyler Perry’s "For Better or Worse" sitcom.
This historic home was built in the 1930s by Hugh M. Woods and features a 4,397-square-foot floor plan, two-car detached garage and even a basement. Gold address numbers welcome visitors and complement the traditional architecture.
Desert masonry walls, made of native stone imbedded in cast concrete, and the entry gate enclose the new garden on a ranch in west Texas. The overall transformation of the ranch property, by Ten Eyck Landscape Architects, was a 2014 American Society of Landscape Architects award winner.
Even the fencing is extraordinary -- all Brazilian handcrafted hardwood with bronze detailing. No matter which side of the garden they stand on, guests will enjoy views of the wood, stone paths and ornamental grasses.
This cottage style fence and gate compliments the stately architecture with dramatic but tranquil flare. Every nook and corner in the landscape was a perfect opportunity to create a creative landscape vignette.
A wood fence not only separates the meadow from the rest of the home, but also furthers the sense of being in the country. Thanks to its earthy hues, the piece pairs beautifully with shrubs and other plants, too.
Around the perimeter of the back yard, a tall wood fence provides privacy from nearby neighbors. Petite pots with succulents make a flexible and low-maintenance centerpiece on the outdoor dining table.
A low, modern fence protects this garden from wildlife while still allowing a glimpse at what's growing inside its walls. A series of raised beds is both functional and artful. The home's stark, modern architecture forms a juxtaposition to its soft, leafy surroundings.
