How to Choose Fence Companies for Landscaping? Schedule an appointment with the representatives of the fencing companies so that you are able to discuss all aspects of landscaping with them. Depending on whether you want a basic or elaborate landscape you can make the choice. Discuss all your ideas together so that representatives are able to clearly understand your specific needs and requirements. You may be able to add style to your landscape by choosing different elements. Customize the design of the fence so that it matches the overall décor of your property. All that you need to do is to ask for a free estimate and consultation so that you are able to make an informed choice. Look at the landscaping photos provided by fence companies so that you are able to determine the kind of look that you want for your fence. It is important that you pay attention to both aesthetic and practical concerns when installing the fence. Avoid opting for cheap material as they may not last long and you may have to replace them again. You can also ask for references from your family and friends who have done landscaping of their property. This can help you get a first hand view of the services offered. Although you may be tempted to do the landscaping and fencing on your own, it is best to opt for professional service as it can be a time consuming process. Experienced professionals may be able to add a completely new look to your fence and property and make it look attractive.
The Pros Proponents of electric fencing say that the current in an electric fence is very small and does not injure a dog (or anyone else). These fence wires are also used for fencing cattle, horses and other animals without any problems. Proponents also say that electric fences for dogs are often used as a last resort. These owners may have other fencing up in their yards. They may have chain link fences but their dogs dig under the fences or climb over. There are some dogs that are escape artists and wont stay in a yard no matter how good the fences. When owners have a dog like that they fear that the dog will be lost or hit by a car if they dont use electric fencing to keep the dog contained in the yard. In these cases the owner may add a string of electric wire along the base of the fence and/or along the top of the fence to keep the dog from getting out. Is electric fencing humane? Yes, it probably is. It is widely used by farmers and others with animals. In most cases an animal will touch it once and doesnt go near the fence again. If a person touches it they receive a small shock -- enough to make them jump back but certainly not enough to harm them. Electric dog fences are not pleasant or attractive but they probably do save the lives of some dogs who would otherwise dig under fences or climb over them to get out and frolic around their neighborhoods. Although they may not be desirable or anyones first choice of containment for dogs, electric dog fences do seem to serve a necessary purpose. They are not necessarily a sign of a bad or negligent owner. Instead, they can be a sign of an owner who is trying his best to keep his dog responsibly contained instead of allowing him to run loose. In many cases an owner will put up a string of electric fence and, after the dog has touched it once and decided to keep away from the fence, the owner will unplug the fence. Simply having the wire up along the fence is enough of a deterrent to keep the dog from digging under the fence or trying to climb over it to get out of the yard. If you have a dog who repeatedly gets out of your yard you will have to make your own decision about whether you want to use an electric dog fence or not. There may be other options but none of them are simple. Some people have dug several feet under their fences and poured concrete to prevent their dog from digging out. If your dog tries to climb the fence, some people have put up coyote rollers on the top of the fence that will make your dog roll off if he tries to go over. The simple fact is that its hard to contain a dog that wants to get out of a yard. Electric dog fences are one option.
