SGW specified the Living Screen product from The Western Group Architectural Mesh Company ( This home is actually featured in the Gallery section of their website. Over time, the plantings at the base of the fencing will overtake the wire mesh and create a solid screen from the street and alley.

The Western Group
SGW: Thank you for your comments re: the screen enclosure around the exterior play area provided by The Western Group - we're proud of how this project turned out for both you and the homeowners! This is an adaptation of our Living Screen - a 3" custom-fabricated system which, in this case, included welded wire mesh on the interior and rectangular perforated plate on the exterior face. We have the ability to create panels in a variety of widths, heights and finishes - all specific for the design needs of each project.

Best wishes,
BrianG@TWG - (503) 222-1644

I like the metal living fence. Is it custom or can you say who manufactures it

Thank you! It looks like a wonderful product, and it would be especially pretty once overgrown with greenery.

I am curious about the posts, almost looks like 4x6's with 2x4's attached to hold the fence in place?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Right outside of the kitchen is a semicovered patio that's veiled by a nearby tree's canopy and orange shade sails, giving the kids a place to play within view from the inside.
John Hill added this to 11 Fences to Match a Modern Mood
Metal fences, with their ability to have slender profiles, are very good as armatures for ivy, creepers and other climbing plants. Behind this school-turned-home in Chicago, we see a fence in the early stages of plants taking hold. As they climb, the plants will create more privacy.
