Lattice panels can be used for many projects, both indoors and outdoors. The design of the lattice allows a sense of privacy while still allowing natural light in. There are many unique ways to use lattice panels.  Keep in mind that lattice should not be used as a full alternative to a fence.  Lattice is not durable enough to use as permanent fencing, and will do a poor job of keeping out unwanted visitors.  It is also see-through, so if privacy is an issue you may want to see if you can find an alternative such as a cedar or vinyl fence.

Lattice is a great choice to use when you need to cover exposed areas around your home, but don’t want to spend a fortune.  It is both functional and when installed properly, visually appealing.

Deck Skirting: One of the most popular uses for these panels is for deck or trailer skirting. This allows you to cover the unsightly area under a deck while still allowing moisture to escape. It can also create a storage area under a deck when a small gate is installed in the skirting. 

Patio Enclosures: To create a more private patio setting, lattice panels can be an inexpensive and creative alternative. The lattice can be used as a single wall, or used to enclose all sides of a patio. The design will still allow people to get a great outdoor feel without sharing their activities with the entire neighborhood. 

Climbing Flower Wall:  Vines can be invasive, but you may still want to have vines or climbing plants near your home.   Lattice panels incorporated in a garden are a great way to have the climbing plants and keep them off the house walls. The lattice also makes it easy to trim the vines back as needed. 

Pool Enclosures: Since lattice does provide a level of privacy, it's common to see the panels used in pool or spa enclosures. Lattice provides privacy, but does not provide proper security around a pool or spa, and a fence may still be needed for safety reasons. 

Gazebos and Arbors: Lattice can add to the look of any structure, and is popular in small outdoor structures. A gazebo will benefit from lattice panels by allowing a view of the landscape while creating a screened in feel. Arbors can stay light and airy by using lattice panels for the roof portion. 

Pet Enclosures: Heavy duty vinyl lattice is becoming a popular choice for dog runs. It is sturdy enough to withstand the abuse a pet can inflict, and is easy to clean. 

If you have extra lattice left over after you complete a project, there are also uses for small pieces of lattice.  Lattice can do more than skirt a porch or hold up vines.  Lattice can be used as edging for a flower bed or small garden, to paint a pattern (use it as a stencil for spraying on allover squares or diamonds), as wainscoting indoors or on an enclosed patio, or even on a shed wall to hang garden tools with hooks.
