Adding a decorative lattice fence accent not only establishes an elegant backdrop, but also brings the space together with form and function. A white scalloped lattice fence with a keyhole gracefully stands in front of feathery evergreens, giving the space definition and creating a focal point. Tip: White was chosen for this setting because it provides a striking contrast to the dark evergreen vegetation, enhancing the visual appeal. Additionally, the same material was repeated for an arched arbor gate that invites you into the space.
