Planning Your Fencing Project There are many fencing material options available to you when you are doing fence planning. You want to choose a quality material that will last, and a material that will give you the desired effect of decoration, privacy, or property barrier. Some of the options for fence types include picket fences, board fences, rail fences, lattice fences, PVC fences, aluminum fences, chain link fences, basket weave fences and custom fences. Any wooden fence can be constructed from different types of wood. A wooden fence can be painted, stained or left natural. A metal fence can also be painted. One other item to consider in fence planning is where you want your gate or gates to be located for easy access and security. You want to be sure that you plan accordingly as the gate will require additional spacing to allow it to open and close. If you do decide to complete a fence project yourself, make sure that you have access to all of the tools that you will need for fence installation and post digging, in addition to the materials for the fence itself. Fence construction is a hard, but rewarding job. You will be proud of the finished product on your property if you carefully think through your fence project before you begin construction. Quality fence contractors are available to help you plan your project and they can answer any questions you have regarding the best fence for your specific needs.
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.
