Steel fences can be used to add sculptural elegance to your front or backyard. Fencing can be the focal point of your landscape design if it has unique ornaments or laser-cut screens that will draw the attention of the wandering eyes.

6. Zen Gardens 

While steel fencing can act as a blending element between the architecture and garden, so can the garden be the blurring component between your house and steel fence. You can use Zen garden designs to create balance between the strength and robustness of the steel and your garden. Just add some water features and minimalist plantings.
