Fencing is one of those home features you didn’t realize you needed until there was no fence. Then all of a sudden, as you watch your neighbors watch you and shoe random dogs out of your yard, fencing becomes a priority. But how to fence an area properly? There are so many different fence types out there that it can be difficult to choose. And yet, not just any fence will do. Below are a few popular fencing options as well as their pros and cons to help you decide how to pen in your yard:
1. Bamboo fencing
We started with this unconventional option because quite frankly, we’re crazy about it! Although not feasible if you live in a cooler climate, bamboo fencing is artsy and attractive. What’s more, it naturally occurs in nature and, unlike trees, grows very quickly. Thus, it is one of your greenest fencing options. If you’re looking for sturdiness as well as attractiveness, we recommend looking into the rolled bamboo or bamboo cane options rather than the green live bamboo that is also becoming popular.
2. Chain Link Fencing
Alright let’s just say it. Chain link is ugly. However, unlike many fencing options, it is extremely durable, inexpensive, and requires little to no upkeep. This might be a good option if your main concern is keeping people out of your space, rather than privacy. What’s more, you can block your neighbor’s view with some creative gardening or by adding privacy slates to particularly vulnerable areas.
3. Vinyl Fencing
Probably one of the more expensive options, but worth it in the long run. Vinyl fencing can be made to look like anything, making it an attractive option as well. What’s more, it is thought to be about 5 times stronger than wood fencing, and best of all, it is resistant to paint, dirt, oil, and other types of vandalism. And then finally, there’s a tried and true favorite…
4. Wood fencing
Wood is a favorite for legitimate reasons. For one, it’s one of your most private options, as wood is totally opaque, can be crafted with minimal space between slats, and can be built as high as you please. For another, wood can be treated with different varnishes and stains to give your yard that warm, homey curb appeal you’ve been dreaming about since you were a little kid. The downside to wood is that it does need some upkeep and depending on the kind of lumber you choose and the height of your fence, it’s not a cheap option.
Remember…If you’re one of the two thirds of people who shop for residential fences each year, make sure to take care of your asset once it is bought. This means doing all necessary upkeep, understanding how to install and repair your fence, and keeping hazards away from it, especially leaves, large items, etc. that could cause rot damage.
