Lawn fences - protection or decoration?
Interesting: In the United States, the concept of "lawn fences" practically does not exist. Only Russian people can order reliable protection of their lawns, mercilessly trampled, and Western people are all civil, no one will think to step foot on the lawn.
Own lawns at home Americans cut every day, and lawn fences perform exclusively decorative function, made of wood, elegant and painted white.
That is why fences are low fences. Made in the form of an openwork forged lattice, they serve only as a warning, and certainly not a defense.
Lawn and garden fencing can be made of the following materials:
- Cast-iron alloys.
- More rarely - plastic and polymers.
Most often, the term "lawn fences"mean all the same forged lattices. There are special blacksmith shops that make decorative fences for each client individually - it became possible to forge their monogram, a whole fairy tale in pictures, intricate curls of a magical garden and so on. You can use decorative gilding or artificial aging of metal - a greenish "coating".
What are the standards of lawn fences?
In general, there are no restrictions onabout what should be the height of the lawn fence, but the urban standard is a lattice height of 70 centimeters. In the conditions of adjacent carriageways, a height of up to 1 meter is allowed.
The choice of width between the bars depends on the function,which will perform fences: near roads in places adjacent to playgrounds it is better to make narrow gaps, protecting young children from the danger of access to the roadway. It is also recommended to make frequent grilles to protect against the penetration of animals.
The following fences for lawns can be distinguished: welded and forged. The first are the union of finished sections by welding, they are available to everyone and are more often used for municipal purposes. Forged gratings are made individually, to order, and are installed by the method of plugging the supports with plates into the ground.
What are the terms of installation of lawn fences? This directly depends on the size of the site and the complexity of the order. For example, summer enclosures can be ordered and installed within one to two days, and the manufacture of a unique design order will take from a week to two months.
Among the popular drawings of forging - willowweaving, royal lilies, English garden grille. Frequently choose the standard intersections of straight lines (vertical palisade, rhombus weave, horizontal bars or lattice), thereby simplifying the work and reducing the cost of the finished structure. After all, the lawn fences are first and foremost the functional protection of the green lawn, and only then the decoration of the country plot. If desired, you can always paint the fences in the original shade - under bronze or silver, thereby highlighting their uniqueness.
