Are you missing something in your outdoor space? Do you need privacy from your neighbor, a touch of color or a focal point on a blank wall? Consider a metal art panel, which can be customized and fabricated in a multitude of materials, colors and designs to suit you and your landscape.

A large metal art panel can act as an outdoor wall to define a space for dining or lounging. Mounted inside a sturdy wood frame like the one below, the panel is neither transparent nor opaque but just the right amount of enclosure, surrounded by plant material. Panels can also be combined to create privacy around a hot tub while still preserving a view to the sky and allowing plenty of air flow around the perimeter.

Steel art panels can serve as custom-designed artwork suited to your architecture. A Moorish pattern that has been powder coated in blue fits perfectly above a raised plant bed and blends with other Moorish furniture in this residence. Panels can also be cut to provide a beautiful but movable screen to hide unsightly pipes or utilities, especially when they are in prominent locations such as an outdoor dining area. The tree panel below is hinged for occasional access to utilities that reside behind it.

Art panels don’t need to be solid. They may be as simple as a welded wire mesh within a steel frame which creates a sturdy yet transparent barrier. The bright red powder coating yields a vivid contrast to the flowering vine that climbs the wire panel. A pair of metal panels with fluid, horizontal lines and accent pieces serve as the perfect foil to the vines and landscape on this otherwise blank, white wall.
