Love these! Just curious, why is everyone grey and not any other colours?

Hi @nsavi,


Grey is a great backdrop colour for use on a fence. It goes with and complements most other colours and allows those in front of it to really stand out. The combination of green and grey is really pleasing to the eye. The greens of plants really "pop" as there's a high contrast level against the grey. Being modern, on-trend, and a safe choice also plays a large role.


A good place to consider lighter colours would be in a small backyard. Dark tones tend to make a space look smaller. On a small yard or courtyard, you might like to go for a variation of white to make the space look larger.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
