If you are in the Greater New Braunfels area, Seguin, or the surrounding region, and throughout the course of the last 25 years have ever been in need of commercial residential fencing services, you may have already heard about TNS Fence. If you are new to the area, you may not have gotten to the point in your life where you are ready to focus on landscaping your property. For those of our readers who are ready to start thinking about improving (or building) the wall around their castle, this post is for you.

But before we dive into the nitty gritty of today’s post dedicated to creative ideas for your privacy fence and backyard, we would like to detail a little bit more about our local fence company called TNS Fence.

We call ourselves your friendly, local fencing pros because those are two of the hallmarks our fencing company prides itself upon. “Friendly” can mean a lot of different things, but it always comes back to the fact that we treat everyone in our Texas community with a sense of respect and kindness. That sensibility is seen throughout our business, from ownership on down to every staff person.

Quality Materials

We call ourselves fencing pros because of three primary reasons. The first is the use of quality materials. Whether you are interested in a privacy fence installation for your home, a chain link fence for your commercial property, or are in need of a custom wrought iron gate, you can count on us to use only the best materials on all of our projects.


The next way we strive to be professional is in our commitment to craftsmanship. To us, craftsmanship means having a set of skilled workers who have seen their fair share of radios. When you work with a fence company that has been around the same area for 25 years, you can be confident that people have been happy with their work (after all, they are still in business!). TNS Fence takes it one step further to let you know our dedication to providing excellent craftsmen on your fence project.


We understand that it takes more than someone who has experience in fencing projects and high-quality fencing materials to make a fencing installation successful. A final element of what really sets us apart is our commitment to communication with the client. From the start of the project to its completion, we make a point to keep you as informed as possible, so that you don’t have to feel out of the loop. As evidence of this, all of our calls received are answered same day, and clients have direct access to their project manager throughout the fence installation process.

Now that we’ve gotten the chance to tell you a little bit more about what makes us a unique fencing company, let’s get to what we promised you; some awesome ideas for decorating your privacy fence and yard in general.

Flower Hanging Baskets

If you have a privacy fence, it already goes to show that you have a classic sense of style. There is something to be said for a traditional, classy American look, and flower hanging baskets provide exactly that. Although privacy fences have a clean, distinct look, some people like to think of them as more of a pallet upon which they can paint than a finished product.

A Mural

Another option which is a bit more informal but still very fun is using your wooden fence as a pallet for a mural. The best part of this idea is that you can personalize the mural in any way that you choose! For some, simple, elegant designs might be a fun spring activity for the whole family (assuming they have at least one artistic bone in their body). You could even paint your fence with the classic stick figure family, as a slightly less complex alternative. The options are endless, and the best part is you can make it about you and your own family.


No, we aren’t recommending you replace your vinyl fence with a bunch of lemongrass plants, but while we are talking about your yard and your aesthetic, we might as well offer our two cents about how lemongrass can really help you out. As it turns out, lemongrass is one of the most effective, all natural ways to repel mosquitos. All you have to do is go to the grocery store, pick a small lemongrass plant up, plant it in a clear jar of water and put it in a place that gets plenty of direct sunlight. Wait a few weeks, and you’ll be able to replant the lemongrass into your garden. Best of all, mosquitoes can’t stand the citronella, a natural oil found in lemongrass, so you can enjoy cool evenings in your backyard without worrying about Zika, West Nile Virus, or some other unsavory condition.

Mirrors On Your Fence

This one applies to your fence and your yard. It may sound a bit off the wall at first, but if you are into a rustic and slightly alternative aesthetic, then putting mirrors framed in old-timey wood is a great way to add a distinctiveness to your yard that is sure to have house guests intrigued. Not only that, but adding a few small to medium sized mirrors can also make your yard look bigger. So adding mirrors to your wooden fence is a great way to show off your individualism while still being classy.


Here’s another off-the-wall idea that is family-friendly and unique. Drill a spackling of holes into your wooden privacy fence and fill them with an assortment of colored marbles. When the sun hits your fence, the light cast will be a beautiful variety of fun colors that the kids are sure to love. This could be a great choice if you have young children who could use a fun activity or two this summer while they aren’t in school. Then in a few years, once they grow up, you can replace the marbled fence with a beautiful new vinyl fence installation for a brand new look. Of course, we recommend you consider TNS Fence if you are in New Braunfels, Seguin, Cibolo, Shertz, San Marcos, and throughout Guadalupe and Comal Counties.
