Ramp up your boundaries

Get it right, and your garden will have the edge. Get it wrong, and no matter how beautiful your products are with in the garden, the backdrop will let it down. Shiplap fencing never looks good, occasionally you can get away with it if you paint it dark grey, however if you can introduce another more dynamic material you can help give the space the edge.
