On The Fence

Love sitting in your big backyard, but don't like sharing your view with the neighborhood? Installing a fence can provide privacy and visual appeal.
When choosing fencing materials, be sure to consider two important factors: your region's climate and your budget. If your region is susceptible to rough weather, such as heavy rain, hurricanes or other inclement weather, durability is the key. Materials to look for include stone or bricks, though these are more likely to be pricier, since they typically require professional installation. Less expensive options include plastic or vinyl, which are still fairly durable. For milder climates, something simple like a wood fence might be a cost-effective, but still efficient, solution.
If you have children or pets, safety is also an important factor. Many home and garden experts suggest installing fences around swimming pools or ponds, and around vegetable gardens to keep animals from ruining your hard work. In general, gates should be childproofed, no matter where they are in your backyard.
Keep visibility in mind when choosing your materials. Paneled fences are opaque, while chain link fences offer decidedly less privacy. This also dictates how a high fence should be or if you want doorways or other openings within the fence.
