There are many reasons why you might be after small fence ideas for your garden. Perhaps you have a large space that needs dividing up into various zones, or maybe you fancy trying your hand at growing your own produce and want to section off part of your garden with a low fence to stop pets trampling your well-tended veg.

Small fences are also a useful way of defining driveways and boundaries or even for cordoning off practical spaces, such as bin storage spots. They are ideal where you don't want to block natural light or still want to be able to enjoy views, but need some definition.
