The garden spaces of your home lend openness and greenery to your property, and it’s why you hire professionals to design and plan these spaces for you. If these areas are demarcated well and the right kind of installations are used in the work, that can add to the beauty and functionality of your yard.
The one common way to segregate garden and yard areas effectively is to build half-height walls along the periphery of outdoor installations such as the swimming pool, the outdoor kitchen, patio, deck etc. You can also install edging along the lawn and flower bed areas to protect them from being accidently trampled upon. The pathways and walkways can also be lined with brick or concrete walls and this ensures that no one will stamp on the plantings and shrubs that line these features.
While all of these are good options, any kind of masonry structure is opaque and very solid in appearance. All these installations would be able to demarcate the required spaces; but they also make the space look smaller and constricted. The one way to circumvent this problem is to get glass fencing installed in the outdoor spaces of your property.
Glass Fences – Different Applications
Glass fences are now becoming the installation of choice on residential as well as commercial properties. Take a look at the different ways in which glass fencing can be incorporated into the design and aesthetic of the landscaped areas of your home:
Many homes have swimming pools and it’s important that these installations have the right kind of fencing around them. It’s the best way to prevent accidents from happening and a fence lends a neat look to the space as well. A frameless glass fence with a complementing glass gate will provide the safety and segregation you need without affecting the openness of the yard. In fact, if you have a modestly-sized yard, it will definitely benefit from a glass fence installation.
Most homes have features such as a deck, patio or an outdoor kitchen and glass fencing or balustrades can create a distinctive look around these installations. Even when you are sitting in your outdoor kitchen space or on the deck or patio, you would be able to enjoy an unhindered view of the landscape. Adding a gate to the glass fence increases its safety aspect and you can easily let your kids and pets play in this space.
Driveway, Pathways and Walkways
You can also install glass fencing all along the walkways and pathways in your garden. This is an excellent way to prevent anyone from trampling on the plantings and lawn spaces. When glass is used to demarcate these spaces, it doesn’t impact the design and theme of the yard or garden, as it is transparent, unlike masonry features that are made of stone, concrete and brick.
Fireplace and Fire Pit Areas
Many homes have standalone fireplace and fire pit installations. You can create cosy nooks anywhere in your yard for these features, by installing glass fencing around these elements.
As you can see, glass fencing can be used in a number of ways in your garden and yard areas. We will work closely with you to understand what your requirements are, and then provide features that work best for you.
