What Is the Purpose of Your New Fence?
One of the most popular reasons for a fence is to protect people and animals. If you have children, dogs, cats, or even horses, a fence can keep them wrangled up in your yard, so that they don’t run off, injure themselves, or get lost. Or you many live by a busy road or are close to neighbors and need privacy. Maybe you need security. You will need the right fence to fill your needs.
What Materials Should You Use For Your Fence?
Fencing materials all carry pros and cons. Some work better in certain aesthetic styles than others. So your first step is to weigh different fencing materials against each other. The most popular on the market are wood, vinyl, composite, aluminum, steel, and chain-link. Metal provides more durability and lowest maintenance while wood and vinyl are capable of giving your yard privacy and style.
What Texture of Fencing Do You Want?
Are you ready to add texture to your landscaping? Different fencing material will add texture to your home and landscaping. If your home has a modern look you may go with a smoother vinyl or aluminum. If it is more traditional then you may want to use wood or aluminum.
What Style of Fencing Do You Want?
Fencing can be so much more than a solution surrounding a privacy issue, or a security issue. Fences provide backdrops to garden beds, highlight ornamental pieces, and help keep certain plants under control. They can also serve as a stand-alone piece to bring further aesthetics to your outdoor living spaces. The materials, shapes, and colors used can all be incorporated into your landscaping. Many styles including security, privacy, picket, split-rail, and paddock fencing, and within each category come many variations to choose from. Picket fences can have arched scalloped or straight tips between each post, and the pickets themselves can come in different designs. Your design depends on your home’s style.
What Color Fencing Do You Want?
One of the best things about having the outside of your house be a light shade is that it matches everything. If you view a fence as nothing more than an extension of the house, then you’ll want something that will blend together seamlessly. Whether you want a white fence to match the white exterior, or a bold fence color to add pizzazz. With a neutral home exterior, your fencing color options are truly limitless! Many homeowners opt for classic wood fencing, which is affordable and long-lasting with proper maintenance. You can go with a natural stain for a natural rustic look.
What Entrances and Exits Do You Want For Your Fencing?
