What Can a Custom Fence Do for Your Property?
Your fence is more than just that thing that keeps your dog in your yard. It’s an extension of your sense of style. It can define the personality of your property. And it can create an oasis of calm and relaxation in the middle of an otherwise crowded neighborhood.
Different Types of Custom Fences. Material is probably the most defining characteristic of any fence. Wood gives the rustic, outdoorsy feel, but leaves you very little control over the overall appearance (part of wood’s charm is it’s variation… but it can also be a limitation if it ages poorly). Vinyl fencing gives a solid, uniform appearance, but lacks the individuality. Custom metal fencing (not chain link) can provide durability and beauty, but can also be more expensive (decorative wrought iron fencing costs start at $20 to $30 per linear foot).
Reasons for Custom Fences. Fences provide security, no question, in both directions (keeping kids and pets inside while keeping intruders out, depending on height). But the visual impact of a fence should never be taken for granted. Aside from your siding, your fence is easily the most visible part of your property, and any design choice should be conscientiously paired with the look and style of your house.
Your Own Personal Island. Perhaps the most important aspect of any fence is to define your property — and not only in the obvious way. Custom fences can isolate your yard, creating a private haven in the midst of nearly any setting. (Be sure to check your city’s zoning laws before installing a fence that’s too high, and you might also pay a courtesy visit to your neighbors to let them know.)
