Choosing the right front garden fence ideas for your home is not a decision to be taken lightly — this is an important choice that can really affect the overall exterior appearance of your property. 

All garden fence ideas form a backdrop for the rest of your landscaping scheme – in much the same way as your walls do inside the house – but in the case of fences for front gardens, they also have the responsibility of contributing towards your home's kerb appeal.
