Despite is suitability as a fencing material, there are some surprisingly creative ways to use chain link fencing indoors and outdoors. While some of these will require you to flex your creative muscle, the end product is certainly worth the effort!
Let’s take a closer look at 3 creative uses for chain link fencing:
1. Garden Trellis
All those gaps in chain link fencing make it a fantastic option for a makeshift trellis in the yard. If you already have a chain link fence and want to jazz it up with something creative, consider adding some crawling plants, shrubs, and even vegetables at the base of the fence.
Once they start growing the plants will naturally craw up through the gaps, becoming one with the fencing itself! There are some plants that you can attach to the fence as they grow, like tomatoes, cucumbers, and runner beans, turning the fence into one massive support structure.
You’d be surprised how just how creative you can get when decorating a chain link fence – the potential is limitless! From hanging decorations like small glass stones that add shine and sparkle to old CDs decorated with custom artwork, there are all kinds of way to add a cool aesthetic to your fencing.
Basically, anything that you can attach or weave through the gaps across the fencing can be used for decorating, so there are countless ways that you can create your own unique décor using the fencing.
3. Storage Cage
Looking for strong and durable outdoor storage solution that doesn’t cost much? Then look no further than a chain link storage cage. Simply create walls using the chain link materials, adding some sort of entrance and a roof on the top of the structure if needed, and you have yourself one fantastic storage cage.
