Home Living : April 13th 2010
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, April 13, 2010 Brighten up your garden in winter As the lustre of summer and spring fades away, a dull and brown winter slowly creeps into the garden. Trees and plants can become stripped and bare, leaving the garden looking dreary and boring. However, this needn't be how the garden welcomes the cooler months. Installing a fence can add colour and warmth to the garden. When using colour in a garden or on the exterior of a home it's desirable to use the latest trends, yet it's important that any changes don't date quickly. The colours in the Colorbond steel range include soft neutrals, traditional heritage tones and cool crisp colours. This allows you to complement elements of your home with the garden for a more holistic look. For fencing, neutrals dominate with the emphasis on creating calm and balancing the more frantic aspects of life. Fencing made from Colorbond steel is available in 14 designer colours. Calm neutrals can be contrasted with strong, accent colours. A neutral- coloured fence can be balanced with guttering, downpipes, fascia, wall cladding or garage doors in darker blues, such as the navy-inspired deep ocean or even deep green such as cottage green. Brightening the garden in winter, a fence made from Colorbond steel will work all-year-round to create a complementary backdrop for a blooming spring garden. In contemporary homes, fence colours can be stronger and can include deep greys, rustic reds and rich greens. Installing a fence made from Colorbond steel is not only a great way to give your backyard a lift in winter, it's also very low-maintenance because of its incredibly resilient pre- painted finish.
