3 Tips for Making Your Louvers Fit in With Your Landscape


Finding a way to make your louvers complement your already existing landscape really increases the aesthetic value of a property.

Custom louvers can add a lot to a business. Not only are they fantastic for privacy and security reasons, but with a little forethought, they can make a property look amazing as well. As with any design element, you want to make sure you take the time to properly plan things out before you go installing new custom louvers. Today, we want to look at some ways you can make your custom louvers better fit in with your commercial property’s landscape, which can improve your property’s value as well as boosting the overall aesthetics of the area.

1. Thinking Materials

The material of any kind of fencing is a critical decision that must be made with a number of factors in mind. With louvers, they are typically constructed out of aluminum—though this does provide a number of customization options. A louver can be built to twist and turn in a number of ways and there are multiple finishes available. Before you work to install your new custom louver, you may want to think about what kind of material and colors you’d like to see that would complement your landscape.

2. Working With Height

Louvers can be made to fit a number of needs, including different heights. Finding the right balance between the height of your fencing and the rest of your landscape is often a critical part in finding the right balance. If part of what you’re after is better security or privacy, you want to make sure that there aren’t any trees around that could undermine those efforts. If someone were able to climb a tree and get over your louver, that could spell out serious trouble.

3. Remember Your Environment

The good news is, compared to other materials and options, louvers can work in just about any environment. You don’t need to worry about extreme weather or rain because aluminum won’t rust like other metals do. Nonetheless, it’s important to take a step back and think about the area you’re working in because sometimes, you can better design your custom louver to fit within a space that may not be readily apparent as a good option. Working alongside the right louver contractor can be beneficial as well, as they will have experience installing in a number of different environments.
