What can I do with my garden screen?

garden screen

Love the look of our metal garden screens but not sure what to do with them? Unlike other similar products on the market, our garden screens are made from S275 mild steel electroplated with zinc, which means they’re highly durable and versatile. Stick with us as we share some of the practical and innovative ways to install a garden screen.

Alternative to wooden fences

Wooden fences have had their day. If you’re looking to ‘fence’ your garden but want something a little more stylish and longer-lasting, garden screens are the answer. Not only are our garden screens made from high-quality steel, but they’re also protected with a premium plastic powder coating to increase their lifespan. Unlike wooden fences, you won’t need to keep repainting or staining your garden screens. They’re zero maintenance. Plus, you have over 200 different designs to choose from to give your garden the upgrade it deserves.

We recommend our 1.5mm and 3mm panels for a fencing alternative as they are far more rigid. Choose our modular post and bracket system to bolt your screens together for easy DIY installation.

Privacy garden screen

Garden screens are ideal for extending the height of existing fencing or low garden walls, just like our customer has done here with the Corten fancy design. Add a luxury feel to your garden and increase your garden’s privacy at the same time.

We also love how landscape designer, Karl Harrison, has used our Bubbles garden screening to add privacy to raised decking. Now his clients can enjoy magnificent views from their raised seating area but aren’t overlooked by neighbouring houses.

Trellis panels for floral displays

Are you already planning your flower garden for spring next year? Make a garden screen double up as decorative trellis for your favourite climbers.

Here, our customer has installed the North Wind garden screen to add interest to a plain exterior wall and support a clematis. We can’t wait for an update to see how it’s grown!

From roses to sweet peas, there are all sorts of lovely climbers you can grow up our trellis panels. And we have lots of organic and nature-inspired designs to help you create the perfect backdrop for your floral display. Take a look at our top 5 decorative garden screens for spring to see some of our floral favourites!

Upgrade your pergola design

2021 has been the year of the pergola – you only need to look at Instagram for proof! While pergolas are perfect for garden parties and dining outside, there’s also been a huge increase in the number of people building them for outdoor workspace.

We’ve had many requests for a bespoke garden screen from customers wanting to add privacy to their pergolas. Our garden screens are ideal for filling in the sides or roof of a pergola to maintain shade on sunny days and create a cosy and relaxing space for outdoor dining.

Hang as wall decor

Transform a boring, plain wall into something beautiful with our garden screens, which a customer has described as ‘artwork in their own right!‘ Dress up your driveway with garden decor to welcome you home and create an eye-catching feature as our customers have here with the Tradition screen.

If you’re mounting your screens on a wall for decorative purposes, we recommend our 1mm thickness option. Don’t forget we also supply wall brackets for securing your screens flush against a wall or with a variable gap. All fixings can be powder coated in a RAL colour of your choice to match your garden screening.

Did you know you can also install our garden screens inside the home as wall decor? With a wide range of patterns, colours and sizes to choose from, we’re guaranteed to have a decorative screen to fit your interior design vision. And if we don’t? Create your own! Let us bring your wall decor designs to life. Drop us an email (sales@metalgardenscreen.co.uk) with your requirements to get the ball rolling.

Install as room dividers

While we’re on the topic of using garden screens inside the home, it’s also worth mentioning their value as room dividers. Make the most of larger living spaces by dividing them up, partition a large bedroom for your children to have their own space or create an office area in your living room. Our garden screens are far more attractive than hanging a curtain and look much sleeker than strategically placed furniture.

The great thing about our screens is that they are available in various sizes and thicknesses to fit your project. While cheaper screens on the market tend to be limited in scope and design, we can offer you a completely bespoke solution, just like we have here. Our customer came to us with a custom request for filling in a dividing wall between their kitchen and living room, and we did just that with our Organics screen!

Secure garden screen for pools

Lucky enough to have a swimming pool or hot tub in your garden? Our screens are great for enhancing privacy while also helping to secure water hazards from wandering children and pets.

We recently worked on a garden screening project for customers in Sheffield who installed our Bubble Bath design as pool screens. Don’t they look fantastic?

As you can see, there are so many different uses for metal screens in your home and garden. We love nothing more than receiving requests from customers to create screens for their projects, and we always look forward to seeing the finished results. Looking for inspiration for your garden?
