Top Fence Designs, Ideas and Colours.

Home is our sanctuary, a safe retreat. With a little bit of inspiration, we can transform an ordinary backyard into our own personal piece of paradise. For an overall masterpiece that you can be proud of, think about the look and feel you want to achieve. Don’t forget to consider the garden and other spaces of the yard used for entertaining. Each element should compliment the other.

Modern Fence Styles in 2020.


Timber has been the most popular choice for fencing for a long time. While economical to install, the look is classic. For a modern slant on timber fencing, people are turning to merbau. Merbau fencing compliments modern homes and enhances natural design elements. Darker timber stain colours can be a stunning offset with modern green plants, grasses or bamboo. Merbau contrasts well with black steel posts or trims, and rendered columns and retaining walls. For a contemporary design, run the palings horizontal instead of vertical.

Colorbond® steel fencing is classic, durable and easy to maintain, hence its never-ending popularity. For a modern twist and a striking look, trim Colorbond® with darker contrast posts. Dark timber posts are another modern option. A new take on metal fencing is aluminium. Aluminium slat screen fencing screams 2020! It’s a low-maintenance fencing style that not only gives you privacy and security, it looks fantastic too. Landscape gardeners are using slat screen fencing within the yard. It’s a perfect partition for creating separate zones within the garden, and can also be used as a feature wall.

Modular Wall System

Another popular fencing style this year is the modular wall system. It exudes sophistication at an affordable price! An added benefit of modular wall fencing is that it can create an acoustic barrier between you and your neighbours. This is ideal for smaller house blocks. Designed to replicate the look of a rendered wall, the modular fence is sleek and neat. It’s versatile and comes in a range of customised styles to choose from. Many people are opting to team modular fencing with metal slat fencing. This combination makes a great backdrop to showcase a modern, landscaped garden.
