Although the installation of the fence was a significant investment, I am totally happy with it
I knew that I wanted a fence installed around my property. I imagined a fence tall enough to create total privacy. The fence would also add to aesthetics, security and value. It would also allow me to let the dog out without a leash. When I contacted a professional fencing company to handle the project, I had no idea how many styles and types of fences were available. I needed to decide between vinyl, wood, chain link and wrought iron fencing. I originally was considering wood because it’s the most inexpensive option. However, wood doesn’t last forever and requires quite a bit of upkeel. I learned that vinyl withstands the severe weather in my area. It won’t rust, fade, rot or become faded or discolored. There is little to no maintenance involved. I don’t need to paint or varnish every year and clean it by simply hosing it down. Once I determined that vinyl was the right material, I needed to determine the ideal height and style of fence. For the sake of privacy, I spent a little extra for an eight-foot tall fence with a tight pattern. This makes sure that the dog can’t escape between the slats and prevents other animals from gaining access. The fencing contractor recommended adding solar lights to the posts which help to illuminate the yard at night. I have planted shrubs and flowers along the bottom of the fence that look really nice. Although the installation of the fence was a significant investment, I am totally happy with it. Having the fence improves my enjoyment of the property as well as the value.
