Height matters when it comes to your front yard fence ideas

Choosing the height of your front fence or wall will depend on what you are trying to achieve. Are you looking to create privacy for an outdoor entertaining area, or perhaps you’re lucky enough to have a pool in your front yard? Or maybe you are looking for a short front fence to create a clear boundary between your front yard and the footpath.

A ModularWalls front fence is a fantastic way to create privacy with the added benefit of reducing noise. A high front fence like is a great way to reduce traffic noise and create the perfect space to relax or entertain – just like The Designory. Either way, the height of your front yard fence should complement the style of your home.

A short wall can have a big impact

Another front yard fence idea is to create a big statement with a short front fence or wall. Just like Coastal Barn Dream did with their driveway entrance using EstateWall. By customising two sections of EstateWall on either side of the driveway, this grand home has created a grand entrance to match.

Colourful front yard fence ideas 

All ModularWalls fences require painting, so your style options are endless. You can choose to match the colour of your home, creating a connection between your wall and front façade. This style creates fantastic street appeal, ensuring your front yard doesn’t look like an afterthought.

If you would like to create the look of a rendered masonry wall, textured paint could be just what you’re looking for. Plus, this is a very cost-effective and time-saving alternative to building a rendered brick wall.

Depending on your style, you don’t need to stop at one colour with your front yard fence ideas. Colour combinations are a fantastic way to create a point of interest and break up a long front fence. Choose between alternating panel colours or use a contrasting colour on the fence posts. You can even add stone cladding to the fence posts to create a natural look.

Alternatively, you can paint the inside fence a different colour to that on the street side. If you are creating a pool area or tranquil garden, a dark coloured modular wall is a brilliant way to bring out the colour of your plants and make them the feature.

Stone cladding front yard fence ideas*

As mentioned above, with the Coastal Barn Dream home, adding a feature like stone cladding to just a few sections of your front yard fence can have a significant impact. Three Birds Renovations House 13 showcases this perfectly. Stone cladding is a fantastic way to achieve a natural look to suit your style. There are many styles to choose from, such as dry-stacked with added grout like House 13 or without grout. There are also multiple colours to choose from, so the most challenging part will be deciding which style you like best.

Slats or infill front yard fence ideas*

Many Australian homes have embraced a combined front fence using ModularWalls and slats. Slats are a great way to provide privacy while still allowing filtered light and ventilation. Slats may be the perfect solution to ensure that the afternoon breeze can sweep through your yard, bringing cool relief in summer and additional light in winter.

Alternatively, a laser-cut infill is another front yard fence idea. Think outside the box and create a statement with your front wall or fence. As mentioned, just like slats, infills allow light and airflow into your front yard. Slats and infills also make great pedestrian or driveway gates giving a consistent look and feel while providing security to your home.

Yes, you can tile ModularWalls*

If you’re looking for other front yard fence ideas, then tiling may be the answer. Tiling is a great way to customise your front fence and make your home the standout of the street. Plus, tiling is low maintenance and easy to clean; it’s a win-win. You can choose to tile complete sections of your front fence or just a few to create the look you desire. If you have a pool in your front yard, tiling the pool wall creates a fantastic feature. With so many colours, styles and designs, tiles are a versatile way to make a statement at your place, just like Three Birds Renovations House 10.

What about adding timber to your ModularWalls front yard fence ideas?*

Timber is a great way to add a natural element to your front wall or fence. Options include thin vertical timber battens like The Designory. Or just a few thick timber posts can make a striking feature. You can get creative with your timber stain colour or let the timber age naturally. Either way, timber combined with light or dark coloured ModularWalls are a timeless look that will make your home a standout. Lastly, don’t forget to include a letterbox in your front yard fence ideas. ModularWalls can supply a stainless-steel letterbox we call a ‘Modbox,’ giving an integrated modern finish to your front fence.
