This is a pic from last year’s Lions Waikanae Garden Trail. The colours of the flowers help to beautify the otherwise dowdy side path — but so would giving the fence a coat or two of wood stain or paint. We often see fences that would benefit from that. Wood naturally fades to a silver-grey; stain or paint will preserve the colour and protects the wood from the elements. See your local Resene or Mitre 10 Mega store.
