Best Types of Vine for a Chainlink Fence in The Fraser Valley

Chainlink fencing often conjures up images of stark playgrounds and concrete jungles, but with a bit of forethought, this durable and inexpensive fencing option can be the perfect solution for your needs. Planting greenery and fast growing vines can help to disguise the utilitarian appearance of your chainlink fence, but which should you choose?

 

In the Fraser Valley area, which encompasses Langley, Chilliwack, and Abbotsford, the plant Hardiness Zone is 8b. This is one of the mildest zones in BC, which is great for you as it means you have a number of options for naturalizing your chainlink fence.

 

‘Tangerine Beauty’ crossvine

Bignonia capreolata 'Tangerine Beauty' is a beautiful and colourful vine that is perfect for fences and arbors. Best of all, the blooms attract hummingbirds!

 

Clematis

There are several varieties of Clematis (actually, there are 300) and all are beautiful. This climbing vine typically does best in full sun, and many of the warmer climate species are evergreen.

 

English Ivy

This familiar vine is a self-clinging climbing perennial with flat leaves. It is a popular trellis vine and doesn’t flower, making it great for beautifying your chainlink fence.

 

Ornamental Grasses

If you don’t like the idea of vines climbing your fence, you can always consider ornamental grasses. These grasses are designed to grow tall and offer a lot of interest and low maintenance. Your local nursery can tell you which varieties will work best for your yard conditions.


If this sounds like a great idea to you, but you are missing the chainlink fence to grow your vines on, contact us. A&G Fencing would be happy to help!
