1. Build a Vertical Garden along the Fence

Build a Vertical Garden along the Fence

Build a vertical landscape design with flowers and plants or vegetable plants. The idea here is to cover the fence up and improve the landscape design.

You can also buy artificial plants that are available online only if you want a quick solution and privacy. Those are strong and can last long.

2. Plant Climbing Vines Around the Fence

Plant Climbing Vines Around the Fence

If you do not like flowers on the fence line, go for any climbing trees like Honeysuckle, and set them up in a way that they automatically grow and cover up the fence completely. 

They will add privacy to your yard and improve the view if you set them up properly. I would say it is one of my favorite fence line landscaping ideas.

3. Set up Hanging Planters on the Fence

You can also hang the plants on the fence for the same effect if you do not have the time to grow the climbing plants around the fence. 

Choose ivy plants and hang them along the fence line. Set them up at a distance and a good height for a good view from far away.

4. Set Up Window Boxes as Pots

Set Up Window Boxes as Pots

If you have old wooden boxes in your house, then set them up as pots close to your fence and plant flowers and plant these. 

That will hide the fence in a few months and also make it look like a small garden along the fence line. You can also paint the boxes for a better view.
