How the Right Fence Can Turn a Yard into the Perfect Living Space

Posted on 2021-07-26 by Walpole Outdoors

Perhaps you’ve created the yard you’ve always dreamed of complete with a custom outdoor kitchen, a perfect pool and gorgeous gardens. But close proximity to your neighbors, traffic noise, or an unsightly view, may keep you from enjoying the backyard retreat you’ve created and cared for. The addition of an AZEK or custom wood fence can work as a buffer to create a more secluded outdoor retreat. Whether you want to establish safe borders, enhance your garden, or feel like you're a world away, a fence can be invaluable in your outdoor space. Extending the footprint of your home, custom AZEK fences can be installed alongside a patio, deck, or pool to create outdoor areas for entertainment, play, and relaxation. Offering the perfect blend of beauty and function, AZEK fences can create different types of spaces throughout your property that best serve your family’s needs while adding a layer of privacy in your backyard

Around a pool area, a fence plays a pivotal role. Whether an AZEK or a custom wood fence, creating a stylish and distinctive perimeter is like the cherry on top of an already picturesque outdoor space. Not to mention, a thoughtfully placed, expertly crafted fence affords seemingly effortless privacy and safety to your space.

If your kids practice sports or just like to run wild outside, it’s easy and important to create a place for them to do so. A solid AZEK or custom wood fence can easily create a perimeter for a designated ball play space in your backyard.

Or perhaps, you’re planning to designate a nook in where quiet and reflection, not physical activity, takes center stage. For a secluded setting, consider lattice for a natural privacy barrier. Allow climbing hydrangeas or other perennial vines to grow up the lattice for a tranquil and inspiring outdoor room.

Less is More with Lattice

By enclosing your outdoor spaces with custom fencing, you not only protect your investment of time, energy and effort you have put into curating your space; you set the stylistic tone. Lattice fences lend themselves as easy dividers between outdoor spaces throughout your property, creating seating areas, garden enclosures or skirting a pool area, helping to blur the line between inside and out. And the ways you can use lattices to express your styles are endless.

Here, a lattice fence is outfitted with wire insets offering plenty of cottage charm, serving as the quintessential backdrop for climbing plants while maintaining its intended function and purpose. Stylish lattice fences provide a feeling of privacy, encourage climbing plants, and when strategically located, can deter deer from grazing on your property.

Add a simple, elegant architectural element to a patio or deck and tie an entire outdoor “room” together with AZEK solid cellular PVC customized lattice fencing (or even simple lattice kits). This Lattice-over-Lattice Fence and Double Custom Vinyl Gate offers delightful views of the sweeping lawns while doubling as a safe pool enclosure. From crafting a private oasis in a bustling metropolis to replicating a historical Victorian Lattice Fence, Walpole’s lattice fences can be tailored to any aesthetic – with more than 40 different fencing styles to choose from. 

Open or Closed, Gates Always Say Welcome

Rolling out the welcome mat in a way no ordinary pathway can, a custom vinyl gate offers the chance to create that wow-factor upon first glance. Guests encounter the entrance to your outdoor space first, so make the kind of first impression that sparks the curiosity and piques interest about what’s beyond the gate. Draped with colorful clematis or fragrant climbing roses, the right gate can create a dramatic focal point of a garden, patio or terrace. With the weight, look and feel of real wood, a custom vinyl gate from Walpole will mark the entry of your outdoor space in style.

Integrate custom vinyl gates throughout your outdoor space to serve as transitions between one outdoor room with the next. Enclose a backyard, connect two garden rooms, or section off a side yard space for play. Make your outdoor space unforgettable by adding a custom vinyl gate, customized to almost any height and width, in an extensive range of styles. Here, Walpole incorporated an impressive radius Chestnut Hill fence and walk gates to enclose a defined area of greenery. 

From the classic to the contemporary, Walpole’s extensive line of fences and gates is long-lasting and distinctive. Crafted from wood or solid cellular PVC (an environmentally friendly synthetic material), these fences and gates are completely customizable, built to last, and offer little-to-no maintenance. Ranging from monochromatic to bold-blended hues, Walpole’s line of AZEK fences, gates and other products come signed, sealed, and delivered in one of more than 100 Sherwin-Williams VinylSafe paint colors. From a vivid Verde Green to a dramatic custom black, Walpole can tailor custom gates, lattice fences, or any other exterior projects with its expansive palate of color choices, guaranteed to last for 25 years.

More than Trim & Panels: Rethinking AZEK Solid Cellular Vinyl

Posted on 2021-06-28 by Walpole Outdoors

With a renewed focus on reimagining outdoor living spaces to be as equally cozy and design-forward as those found inside the walls of a home, homeowners are considering every square foot of their yards as retreats for family and friends. Transforming outdoor spaces into timelessly stylish living areas is top of mind for many. The pandemic has certainly shed new light on the value of serenity at home with the desire for safe outdoor spaces to relax, reconnect with nature, and recreate with family. 

When putting the pieces of the backyard landscape design puzzle together, you’ll consider the use of space, aesthetic, and materials to adequately reflect the personality and purpose of those who will enjoy them. And outdoor spaces can come as varied as the homeowners themselves, no doubt. There is not one blanket style, one aesthetic, nor one particular color that will appeal to each and every homeowner. But there is a single material known to win over the hearts of many.

Leveraging innovations in material science to offer sustainable solutions, AZEK has revolutionized the residential and commercial building industry. Offering the beauty and feel of real wood, high durability, and low maintenance, AZEK is an alternative material that outclasses and outlasts its wood counterpart by a long shot. 

AZEK solid cellular PVC offers the look, feel, and workability of real wood. It’s well-known as a decking, panel, and trim material, but with the right manufacturing partner, it can be used for an exciting range of structural and aesthetic applications to fulfill your designs and make them last.

Many homeowners (and designers) may see “vinyl” or “PVC” and think of AZEK as some flimsy, toxic, fake plastic substance to be avoided. In actuality, AZEK is crafted from PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) using a low-emission, environmentally friendly process. AZEK is a low-maintenance material resists warping, moisture, and sun damage, retaining its sturdiness, carpenter-finish, and color for decades. 

The #1 fabricator of AZEK products is Walpole Outdoors, and this New England-based company offers unique design collaboration and customization capabilities for architectural and landscape pros who choose AZEK for their finished projects. With everything from easily integrated AZEK kit pergolas to graceful AZEK Arbors to custom planter boxes, Walpole’s extensive line of products are long-lasting, durable, and distinctive – ready and waiting for your next big plan.

When the Landscape Meets the Hardscape

As you know, the structure of a garden is not defined only by its annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees. Serving as a backdrop and defining the garden, dining, or living space, the architecture and the various elements integrated throughout the property provides the strongest elements of the landscape design. Inserting an AZEK arbor into your design provides an easy and eye-catching element that can transform a garden from meh to magnificent.

Often draped with rambling wisteria, colorful clematis, or fragrant climbing roses, arbors create a dramatic focal point or serve as an entryway for welcoming guests. From elegant and traditional to modern designs, AZEK arbors can be configured into the framework of any design. Integrated into fencing, enhanced with lattice, a charming built-in bench, or other creative touches, arbors handcrafted in cellular PVC offer seamless style and little-to-no maintenance for your clients.

For a classic look so many homeowners envision for their home, a Standard Spindle Top Arbor offers plenty grace and charm. It’s lovely arched top flanked by two side lattice panels can seamlessly integrate with any of Walpole’s custom AZEK fences. Or it can be standalone in a garden for a swoon-worthy garden accent in your design. An arbor brings vertical interest to the horizontal ho-hum of a yard or garden. 

With the right arbor, you can enhance a walkway, make a grand entrance, or create a shady backyard retreat. With an extensive range of styles to complement a variety of AZEK fences, from cottage to contemporary, Walpole arbors are made of beautiful, low-maintenance solid cellular PVC. 

AZEK arbors offer unrivaled high-performance and beauty because AZEK is engineered to last longer than other wood alternatives but offers the most natural hardwood look. 

The Ideal Material for Open-air Living

Looking for ways to freshen up their outdoor space in a way that speaks to the unique style of your client’s home? You can open up new possibilities for how they work, relax, and play in the outdoor spaces by designing the perfect pergola. AZEK Pergolas add architectural drama, provide a little safeguard from the elements, and extends a living or dining space underneath protective arches for cozy three-season outdoor hideaways.

Whether at home or a place of business, the addition of a structure like a pergola to any outdoor space expands its usefulness and aesthetic appeal. Reimagine open-air living with the addition of a fully customizable AZEK pergola, creating an outdoor “room” for comfy seating, cooking space, or al fresco dining that is built to last. 

With steadfast color engineered to stay true over time, you can specify the color of any Walpole AZEK pergola (or other AZEK product) with a palette of more than 100 color choices in vinyl safe paint from Sherwin Williams, with a 25-year warranty against cracking, peeling, and blistering. And Walpole’s’ expansive line of diverse grain options - including intricate, hand-scraped looks - offers elegant style with better protection. Each AZEK pergola has sturdy construction allowing for a manually operated ShadeFX canopy, offered in over fifty Sunbrella rain-resistant, waterproof, and commercial fabrics. And, Alloy Armour Technology provides a special capping protecting all four sides of the boards, empowering your client’s AZEK pergola to stand the test of time by resisting moisture and its corrosive effects.

Consider adding one of Walpole’s artfully designed weighted planter boxes to an AZEK pergola. Whether adding another layer to your customized design or serving as a sophisticated stand-alone statement piece, planter boxes are a versatile solution for homeowners and business owners alike. Solid cellular vinyl planter boxes have the look and feel of real wood but are far more durable and offer slim-to-no maintenance.
