Aside from adding aesthetic appeal to your home and yard, fencing establishes boundaries, gives you and your loved ones the privacy you deserve and desire, but most importantly, can serve as a form of security. While fences are available in many different materials and heights, choosing the right fence for your home is all about the application and purpose it will serve.
At Lou’s Landscaping, we offer our clients a large selection of fence types. Here are some of the most popular types and their most common applications:
PVC/Vinyl fences – Although a bit more costly than other fence types, Vinyl fences have become a modern day favorite due to their aesthetic beauty and durability. Vinyl fences come in several options including semi-privacy, privacy and picket, with the latter being the most popular. Picket fences are typically 3’-5’ while privacy fences are 4’-6’ in height. They are extremely easy to maintain as they are resistant to rot and other effects of weather and time.
Wooden fences – Wood fences are more of a traditional choice when it comes to fencing. Nonetheless, wood fences can add a true dimension of beauty to your home and yard because they are available in a variety of colors, grains and textures. Typically, wood fences are 3’ to 6’ in height, and come in a variety of styles including the following:
- Stockade/solid panel
- Traditional tongue & groove
- Board on board
- Post & rail
Although wooden fences offer an extensive variety, they do require a lot of maintenance as they are more subject to rotting, insect infestation and erosion as a result of weather and aging.
Aluminum fences – Aluminum fences are one of the most versatile and easy to maintain fence options. Because of their composition, they are extremely strong and can withstand extreme weather conditions and the elements. They are available in a variety of colors and heights and are typically used to fence homes and pools.
