Patio Inspiration: Conteporary Fence treatments on a budget
David Rachford
July 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm looking for some contemporary (Modernish) treatments to cover the interior fence on my patio. I'd like something with a finished Modern look.

I plan to have a gas fire feature with a Cor-Ten weathered steel plate as back-drop; but need some ideas for lower budget materials to cover the rest of the fence around my patio. The reason I need budget materials is that my fence is 6' tall, and 45' long, or 270 sq feet. I'm fine with paint-able materials, or some sort of system to grow vines & scented flowers on.

I'm totally going to knock off this fire-place. Other pic is my "blank slate"

For the patio, the brick is on the way out, and I'm going to put in smooth concrete (stained) and build a bench into the far corner.

All suggestions appreciated!
Thanks!

Great images @jeannie! And great fireplace to "knock-off"! I'm doing a similar one for a home in NorCal! Isn't there a quote about "flattery"? Sounds like a fun project, this will be a joy to follow!

@Jeanie - I love the clean horizontal lines of what I'm assuming is redwood, stained or oiled... but I'm afraid that might be a budget buster; will have to check my local lumber Co's. Will let you know what I find out!
