Six Ideas to Accessorize a Vinyl Fence: Create Your Space

Homeowners find little buyer’s remorse after installing a vinyl fence to meet their perimeter fencing needs. Vinyl fencing lasts for decades and requires minimal upkeep and maintenance. Additionally, vinyl fencing provides exceptional privacy and contrasts well with a home’s architecture and landscaping. There are many accessories that can be installed on or around a vinyl fence to further enhance and customize a yard space. 

Accessories can be added to a vinyl fence to enhance the outdoor living space with decorative solar lighting, plant hangers, artistic decor, and garden enclosures. Adding accessories to a PVC vinyl fence may require additional planning and the consideration of the reinforcement needs of the fence. 

This post is designed to provide ideas for accessorizing your vinyl fence. Here, I explore my top ten list of highly rated vinyl fence accessories that will beautify, enhance, and customize your outdoor space. Most of the accessories on the list are from Amazon. 

Vinyl Fence Lighting: Elegance Into the Night

My favorite vinyl fence accessory is the addition of fence post lighting. As the sun drops below the horizon, solar LED lighting options emanate a soft romantic glow that add distinction and charm to the landscaping through dusk and into the night. Most vinyl fence lighting options screw directly into the vinyl fencing material. Options include solar LED lighting for vinyl fence post caps, rails, or adjacent landscaping.

Vinyl Fence Post Cap Lighting

Before purchasing vinyl fence post cap lighting, ensure the dimensions of the product being purchased will fit your fence post. Here are a few Amazon post cap lighting options:

A vinyl fence can certainly be used to hang lightweight plants and decor. However, if the item is excessive in weight, consult your vinyl fence manufacturers’ load capacity. If necessary, consider adding additional reinforcement to the post and rails. Read more on post reinforcement here.

Vinyl Fence Ivy Lattice

Many varieties of ivy can climb virtually anything. A vinyl fence offers an excellent backdrop for ivy. To encourage the shaping of ivy growth, homeowners can install ivy lattice systems directly to the vinyl fencing. Also, decorative ivy lattice makes a great accent. And, for those who don’t want to deal with the potential ivy takeover risks and near-permanent attachment of ivy rootlets to their vinyl fencing, homeowners can look at faux ivy latticing as an alternative.
