Privacy Fence

last modified: 7 years ago

I have a colour question. I am putting up landscape fabric on my fence as we back onto a public path. Our city recently cleared all our trees due to the ash borer infestation. I used black weed cloth last year and it only made it one year granted it was bought from Dollarama so most likely it was an inferior product. The black did seem to blend into the back ground plus I am used to seeing a black privacy background on other properties. Home Depot has a polyester one but it is a medium/light grey. The fence is 7' high, black chain link and will cover 100' in length. I am having a hard time visualizing the grey. The background is grass and some low bush. Just wondering if the lighter colour might be too focal. Thanks.

ETA: The fence is also along a row of maple trees so it is shaded for much of the day. Which makes me think the grey may be too noticeable?
