Wood Fencing There are three main types of wood fencing: privacy, picket, and rail fences. Conventional types of wood used include cedar, pine, redwood, cypress, and more. The availability of each will depend on the region. • Privacy fences serve to provide the homeowner with seclusion and an intimate setting in the back or front yard. Usually six to eight feel tall, privacy fences are common in both urban and suburban environments. • Picket fences, led by the white picket fence, are a truly American tradition. They are shorter than a privacy fence (3-4 feet tall) and are not intended to allow privacy so much as an enclosed yard and a colonial style. Styles of picket fencing include arched, scalloped, gothic, French gothic, dog-eared, and standard flat-top. • Rail fences are prevalent in rural areas such as farms and ranches, where animal containment is necessary. Rail fences consist of round, square, board, or split rails attached to posts. They allow an uninterrupted view of the landscape. Often, a mesh wire is combined with rail fence framing to keep smaller animals in or out.
Types of Fences o Chain link fencing also called wire netting. Also, there are chain wire fences. o Barbed wire fences. o Mesh fencing, light wire mesh fences, chicken wire used for keeping chickens or other such livestock in and predators out. o Cactus Fence - This fence is built like a cactus with metal thorns that are very sharp. o Electric Fence - These are usually used in high security areas where they either want to keep something in or keep something out. These are used around prison and government structures. Even military areas are protected by either high walls or by barbed wire fences. o Concrete fence - These are highly durable and easy to install. They also offer a high degree of protection. o Dry stone wall fencing or rock fence - These are usually used for agricultural purposes. o High tensile wire fence. o Pest retardant fence - These fences are very useful in keeping unwanted pests at bay. o Hedge fencing - This is when the fence is made up of hedge growth. This plant grows thick and has tiny thorny branches that can be a deterrent to anyone who tries to crawl through. o Hurdle fencing - This fence is made up of movable parts that can be adjusted according to your preference. o Palisades. o Sunken fence, also popularly known as a Ha-ha fence. o Fencing for pets called Pet fence or underground fence for pet containment. o Picket fences - These, as the saying goes, are white picket fences. Of course, they can be of other colours, too, and are usually used for decorative purposes in the garden. o Pool Fencing - These are used to cordon off the area around the pool to keep pets and toddlers out of harms way. o Railing fence - This is also called the post fence. These are generally around the house along the road to demarcate private property from the sidewalk. o Balustrades - These are metal railings that are placed around balconies or staircases to prevent people from falling down.
Marking of property: Land is a scarce resource that needs a protection to prevent people from encroaching it. Whether it is a large land i.e. a farm of thousand acres or just a small plot, effective fences will mark your property imperative. Erecting or installing a fence is the best way of marking the points your land starts and ends. Doing so will help you avoid issues or disputes with the neighbours and these disputes can sometimes lead to expensive lawsuits. Other than preventing encroaching, the installation of fence helps you to know how much space is remaining on your property, thatll help you to plan accordingly for the future renovations or additions in mind. Knowing the exact size of land that is left with you after the fencing is done, will help you to determine the size of the small pool, garden or swing set that you get for the kids of your family
Aluminum Fencing Aluminum fencing, also an ornamental fence, is very similar to iron fencing but offers heightened durability and little or no maintenance. Modern ornamental fences are either hybrids, utilizing both steel and aluminum, or solely aluminum. Aluminum fences are powder-coated for longevity and use brackets as post-to-rail connectors. This avoids the fragile, rust-prone welds so common with conventional wrought iron fences. Styles and designs for aluminum fencing include a growing range of colors, including black, white, bronze, and even green. Similar to chain link fencing, aluminum fences come in different picket, post, and rail sizes. These differences will determine the strength of the fence. For aluminum, the larger the picket, the stronger the fence. Aluminum fences are much cheaper than iron fences because they are much easier to install. On a broader scale, aluminum typically falls somewhere between vinyl and wood fencing in terms of cost.
