outdoor chalkboard - Does anyone know how to keep the board from getting ruined outside? And what if you have a chain link fence ?

A previous post stated that this outdoor chalkboard is real slate rather than chalkboard paint, so it is impervious to the weather. I imagine you could wire a slate chalkboard to a chain link fence.

if it's real slate - it's not an issue since slate is stone

So much depends on your climate and soil - You need to speak with an experienced landscaper in your area and/or the folks at your local garden center (not the folks at the Big Box Stores) to make the best garden material choices for your landscape.

I agree with Anne & bepsf. You may want to start from Monrovia Nursery' Search engine to see what would grow in your area.

I'm a big fan of the fence, the color and the chalkboard idea! - Is there any way to find out more about the fence details? (height of the fence, distance btw each post, wood used...) Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here you can tell that functionality was considered. How fun is it to have a vertical chalkboard for kids outside?
Becky Harris added this to Privacy Please: Outdoor Walls
This designer integrated a chalkboard into the wall for the kiddos, so that they can add their own designs to the wall.
Becky Harris added this to Sculptures in the Landscape
This blackboard lets kids create their own outdoor artwork and change it up as often as they like.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 12 Great Fences and Gates
Here's a kid-friendly fence: an outdoor chalkboard within the fence panels. Now let's see if you can get the kids to pretend they're in school while on summer vacation! More: Enduring Design: The Picket Fence 12 Inspiring Garden Gates Garden Edging: Clean Lines for Your Landscape
Placing a chalkboard panel on your existing fence is a quick DIY project that children of all ages will love. The bonus is that you can use the chalkboard too. Think easy party banner.
Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Terrific DIY Home and Garden Projects
Project: Outdoor chalkboardDifficulty: ModerateEstimated time: 2 daysShades of Green's portfolio on Houzz inspired me to research outdoor chalkboard DIY projects. I discovered the perfect method: Mix outdoor paint with a dark sanded grout and apply it to a sheet of plywood for a version that will hold up against the elements. Get the full how-to here.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 10 Creative Fence Designs
Accent your fence with interesting materials. A chalkboard incorporated into the fence will make the yard all the more imaginative and engaging for the kids. And water is all it takes to keep it clean.
Not that there’s anything wrong with simple wood construction, especially for garden owners seeking a casual feel. Something as simple as setting the planks horizontally transforms the mundane into the unexpected, while still keeping an eye on the checkbook. Add a bit of fun and practicality with a chalkboard for the kids (or for grown-ups in touch with their inner doodler).
