Planning the landing along the fence in the country


In order to decorate beautifully with flowers and trees near the fence, you should know some important subtleties about the placement of various species. Let's start with the trees.

Before picking up trees for landscaping the space around the fence, you must first learn some subtleties of planting:

  1. To prevent the fence from being damaged by the roots, it is important to consider distance between it and the tree. The optimal distance is about 3 or 5 meters. Consider not only the actual size of the tree, but also its estimated size of the crown and root system in the future.
  2. Calculate in advance the shaded area near the fence and trees. Consider which plants can be planted nearby.

As a rule, our compatriots traditionally plant fruit trees, such as apples, near fences. But to decorate this area, there have long been special varieties of trees. Here they are:

  • Maples with various shades of foliage, for example, Tatar.
  • Willow.
  • Linden.
  • Buckthorn
  • Dwarf birch.
  • Chestnut.
  • Conifers, for example, Tui.

Due to the trees it is possible to increase the height of the fence. Make it easy - we plant trees in a row. As soon as the crowns are in contact, they begin to cut regularly. Best of all, the procedure is amenable to linden and elm. The first one will also delight you with an unforgettable aroma during the flowering period.

It is important to take into account the purpose of the tree near the fence. For example, you can completely close your area from prying eyes. And you can just want to give the fence a more decorative look. About what trees can be planted for different purposes, it will be a little later. And what kind of shrubs suitable for planting?

Shrubs for places near the fence

Shrubs planted here have a lot of advantages:

  1. Transformation is not very aesthetic fencing.
  2. Air enrichment with oxygen.
  3. Purification of air from dirt and dust, if the site is located along the roads.
  4. Ease of care.

Derain. The shrub is completely unpretentious and is the favorite of many gardeners. Its motley leaves transform any plot and fence. Derain grows well in any territory, including in Siberia. In the summer it is decorated with flowers, and in the fall - white fruits. Perfectly gives in to formation by a hairstyle.

Spirea. If you combine several varieties of plants, it is possible to get a blooming "wall" for the whole summer and early autumn. The bush is very easy to clean, does not require frequent watering or fertilizer. Perfectly amenable to molding. No pruning grows great too.

Lilac. Of course, it takes pride of place in the areas. However, it is difficult to call an unpretentious lilac - it needs good light and low water table. The most frost-resistant varieties are Amur lilac. Without proper care, the bush will not look very presentable. So the lilac need to be planted only if there is time to care.

Hortensia - another spectacular plant for planting along the fence. On the picture Hydrangea paniculata (paniculata), Limelight ’variety.

Fruit shrubs

Why not combine business with pleasure and plant fruit bushes near the fence? This is especially true for small areas.

Viburnum. In the summer, the bush of viburnum will delight very beautiful flowers, which are then replaced by useful berries. Kalina prefers slightly acidic soil and good lighting. If the soil is infertile, the shrub will grow poorly.

Blackberries and raspberries. These bushes will delight you with a crop of berries with little or no difficult care. There is only one BUT - raspberries and blackberries multiply very quickly with the help of processes, so there must be a curb along the bushes. Otherwise, the bushes will capture the entire territory. Blackberry branches should not yet touch the ground.

Currant. Currant bush survives quite hard. Planted in wells at a distance of about 50 centimeters from each other. Currant loves frequent loosening and soil moistening from below. Leaves do not need to be watered. After 15 years, the bushes need to be updated.

Chokeberry. This shrub is completely unpretentious and does not require special care. It grows well in such harsh regions as Siberia.

What to plant along the fence in the shade?

The strong shadow of this point imposes certain restrictions. What types of trees and shrubs can be planted in a fairly dark place? Let's start with the trees:

  1. Yew. Compact tree, perfectly amenable to formation. Loves wet and loose soil. Suitable for the northern regions where the snow depth is high enough.
  2. Siberian fir. Another tree, perfect for shaded places and the northern regions of the country. Spring is covered with purple cones and decorative inflorescences. It grows well in sunny places where the shadow periodically appears.
  3. Rowan. The tree is distinguished by its absolute simplicity. So feel free to plant it in a corner where other plants and trees do not grow well.


  1. Hydrangea. It grows well in fairly shaded areas. Flowers in the form of panicles can grow up to one and a half meters in height.
  2. Elder. This shrub is resistant to all weather conditions - shade, frost, etc. It grows great and does not require feeding, frequent watering and loosening.

And what can you plant from the street? The main task in this case is usually to hide the area from the extra eyes. Good fit undersized pine, spruce, chestnut, birch. From the bushes the most popular can be called lilac, but you have to watch it, because there are many who want to collect a fragrant bouquet.

A very popular choice for shade is hosts. Below is a photo of a selection of compositions with this plant:

What to consider when choosing plants

Before you finally decide what to plant behind the fence, you must consider a number of factors:

  • soil composition, proximity of groundwater occurrence, climate specificity, so that the plant does not die due to inappropriate conditions,
  • features of plant care,

Important!It is not recommended to plant a difficult-to-care crop if there is no one living at the dacha and there will be nobody to look after the greens.

  • the purpose of planting (decorative, protective, to create additional shade, etc.),
  • wind blowing of the plot and the presence of light,
  • cottage planning,
  • characteristics of the fence itself (height, technical condition, color, etc.),
  • compatibility of different cultures. For some plants, the neighborhood is extremely undesirable,
  • plant life cycle and features of their development. Some cultures have a powerful root system that can damage the foundation of the fence. In addition, plants should be provided in the composition along the fence, which bloom at different times to ensure a decorative effect.

Important!On the traditional 6 acres it is not necessary to place large tall plants, since they not only create an undesirable shade for crops, but also require a lot of space.

How type of fence affects plant selection

When choosing which bushes to plant along the fence, it is necessary to take into account the type of barrier.

If the fence is wooden, the choice is practically unlimited - any trees and shrubs will feel great here (barberry, hawthorn, lilac, elder, thuja, cherry, plum, hydrangea, and many others).

The metal fence can be heated in the sun, so it is recommended to plant strong, unpretentious plants - rosehip, birch, maple near it.

The grid-chain-link will serve as a support for climbers - actinidia, m of maiden grapes, decorative beans, climbing roses, sweet peas. Care should be taken with hops, as it spreads very quickly over the area and is poorly displayed.

Important!Do not plant crops too close to the fence. Distance required - 1-2 meters.Flowering plants will attract additional attention to the fence, so it must be put in order (cleaning, painting, protection from rot and rust).

We select mixborders

Unpretentious plants for hedges can be combined inmixborderscompositions of perennial ornamental crops.

  • for viewing from the side between the fence and the landing, it is desirable to leave a strip of lawn,
  • cultures mixborders grow quickly, so you need to ensure that they do not interfere with each other and maintain a decorative appearance.

For shrub compositions it is best to choose plants with a small crown and a long flowering period. Most often gardeners prefer rhododendron, forsythia, spirea, hydrangea. Complement them with magnolia, iberis, boxwood.

A great solution would be planting near the bushes of plants that cover the ground - stonecrop, periwinkle, yaskolki, carpet phlox. The space between the bushes is filled with daisies, hosts, viols, primulas.
