How Can You Add Privacy To Wrought Iron Fences?

Wrought iron fences are highly valued for their aesthetics. They are also highly durable and enhance your home’s security. One thing these fences don’t do well is provide adequate privacy. However, the implementation of the right measures can help you get all the privacy you desire. 

At G’s Fence Company of San Antonio, we have a number of ideas for you to add privacy to your wrought iron fences. These include:

1. Corrugated Metal Privacy Fence

You can add corrugated metal to your wrought iron fence to add privacy. You will require the following materials:

  • Corrugated metal panels
  • Brackets
  • Screws

Corrugated metal is available in a wide range of colors, and you can have them cut into any size to fit your fence. Interestingly, leaving the corrugated metal bare can help create a more rustic look and feel.

2. Wooden Plank

If you seek the maximum-possible privacy, you can add wooden planks to your wrought iron fence. The planks can be nailed or screwed directly to the fence. Pre-cut panels are readily available. They can be custom-cut to the width of your metal fence. The wood can also be painted or stained to match your home’s exterior looks. 

3. Add Green Privacy Elements

It is recommended to plant vines in front of your wrought iron fence. Space the plants at a specific distance. Some recommended perennial vines include:

  • Kiwi
  • Jasmine
  • Honeysuckle
  • Clematis
  • Wisteria

These vines can grow in zones 4 through 11. You can also use metal garden stakes with hooks to hang the plants. There are also plant pots that can be hung from the fence. It is recommended to choose fast-growing vines that can cover your fence quickly. 

4. Consider Faux Greenery

If you want to add greenery to your fence, but don’t want to wait for the plants to grow or keep up with the maintenance, you can simply decide faux greenery panels. 

  • Such panels are made of silk or plastic
  • They are available in a wide range of styles and colors
  • Installation is easy, and the panels can be cut to fit your metal fence and gate

5. Fabric-Based Privacy Screen
