The main purpose of creating a boundary wall or fence is to secure the safety of a home and its residents. While most homeowners are satisfied with just setting up a simple wall with barbed wire and broken glass fixed above it to keep burglars away, some smart owners use this to create an impressive façade.  

In this ideabook we have collated 25 of our best fencing and boundary wall designs that can be used in different topographies to meet design compliance and aesthetic needs. The walls made in different designs using a wide variety of materials will certainly find their place in homes across the land.

1. Pretty white wood

Fences made of plain wooden planks get a stylish edge when they are painted white as they provide the perfect background to a green lawn and colorful garden while granting privacy.

2. Natural materials

None can deny the simple beauty of wooden fences that were the standard boundary wall material around the world before people started making concrete walls for better security and privacy.  The combination here of wood and cement lends an aesthetic touch to the house facade.


3. Slim log trunks

For a rustic edge to the garden that has a wooden deck with rustic steel furniture, this trendy backyard wall made out of slim log trunks is a perfect option. This wall provides privacy to people seated on the deck as the rest of the garden is encircled by a green hedge.

4. Steel fence around the pool

This partway steel fence created between the pool area and rest of the garden is to prevent children and pets from stepping into the area. Design fulfills twin purposes of security and privacy.

5. Textured wall

When there is a high boundary wall along the property perimeter it tends to make the region look like a forbidding fortress. Playful textures and imprints like these that are built into the wall help it attach seamlessly with the house facade and provide stylish elegance to the connection.

6. The cozy sitout

The white wooden picket fence here painted may be perfect for a country style garden but the elegant combination it creates in partnership with wooden benches and colorful shrubs makes up for the slightly crowded sit-out.

7. Stone wall

Instead of having a wall constructed out of large stone blocks garden the landscape designers have made a stylish boundary wall out of small pieces of stone by piling them between neatly between two wire fences that creates a stylish barrier that is weather proof and maintenance free.

8. Stylsh wood and steel barriers

In addition to providing a strong support for the vines that are part of the vertical garden the brown boundary wall provides a strong support to the classy wrought iron boundary wall that separates the property from main road.
