Don't for one second think that cheap fence ideas can't be stylish — with a little creativity and forward planning, affordable garden boundaries can be every bit as beautiful as some of the more expensive options out there. 

Fences are a brilliant solution for so many landscaping schemes, offering privacy, shelter and a way to define and zone the space — plus they tend to be far more cost- effective and quicker to construct than walls or hedges.
