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.
Iron Fencing Iron fencing has long combined both beauty and function in residential, commercial, and industrial situations. Also known as ornamental fencing, it was originally made from wrought iron. Steel or aluminum are now incorporated into production. Most commercial and industrial fences are made using welded or assembled steel. Aluminum is more common in the residential arena. Iron fences can be designed with pickets above or below the fences top rail. Also, aside from its customized, ornamental appeal, iron fencing provides security by keeping unwanted prowlers out and pets and children in the yard.
Chain Link Fencing- If you consider raising the price bar, chain link fencing is another option to be taken into account. These fences are fixed to metal or concrete posts, are flexible and can be used efficiently to delineate boundaries, provides security and is even used around sports pitches and courts. These fences look a little oppressive, but one can consider getting them galvanised or plastic coated in a green or black colour, in order to help it blend a bit more. If you need higher security, barbed or razor wire can be installed at the top of the chain linked fences.
Another type of fencing that is made of metal and that is gaining in popularity is aluminum fencing. This is a more cost effect option. Aluminum fencing can be purchased off the shelf and does not have to be created for one job. This is a lovely option for those who cannot afford wrought iron. You can find this in many different fence styles. You do not have to worry about aluminum fencing rusting. The look of the fence will not fade either. Maintenance is not required with the exception to a quick wash with the hose. This can be done when you notice the fence is dirty. It is a common misnomer that a metal fence will not have the same type of seclusion as can be found with other types of fencing. You can get seclusion fences that are made out of both of these examples. Keep in mind that the cost of these fences will be a little more than the standard fence. To add to the privacy, you can add bushes or plants that will keep prying eyes out without being too obtrusive and will still look nice. This is a great way to utilize bushes and trees. You can have decorative metal fencing that will add a nice touch to the outside of your house.
