Types of Fences When installing fences in ones yard, there are many types that one can choose from. Fences that are made from timber are by far, are arguably the most popular ones. These are quite cheap, versatile and come in different shapes and sizes. These are also preferred by some buyers because they are environment-friendly. However, timber can rot and some types of timber fences are no-good in terms of quality. Modern houses usually have brick or cement fences. Brick fences are popular because of their sturdiness and durability. The colors selection is also endless. These, however, are more expensive than timber fences. There are also steel fences which are lightweight and quite strong. Steel fences can, however, make irritating noise, especially if its windy or rainy. There are also stone fences and those which are made from natural materials such as bamboo, cane and reed.
Selecting a Fence : If you are after containment, for children or animals you have many options ranging from waist high timber rail fences clad with an animal mesh through to the security fences previously discussed. Deciding how much and what type of containment you require will be down to your exact situation and what you are trying to contain. Containing a horse will require a fence with different characteristics to a fence for containing children!
Wooden and Timber Fencing- It is amongst one of the affordable fencing options and is mostly used when security is not the sole reason for installing a fence. Though is not as secure as a palisade or other high-security fences, while still creates a solid appearance and is deterrent to potential intruders. Other forms of wooden fencing include acoustic fencing, log wailing etc.
Selecting a Fence : If you are simply after a demarcation line for your property the cheapest starting point will be a simple wire fence mounted on natural stakes a couple of inches in diameter at 3m intervals with a line of wire strung between them. Farmers will often upgrade a demarcation line of this type with either a wire mesh stock fence (1m high) in place of the line wire, or for larger animals or more durable fencing will go for a timber post and rail system roughly chest high and with either 3, 4 or 5 rails depending on their livestock (when keeping sheep/swine, this type of fence will also have the stock mesh clad to the lower section of the post and rail for added containment). Choosing which style and type of fence you require will depend on your exact situation.
