The old expression "good fences make good neighbors" is true, but it's only half the story. This refers strictly to perimeter fences that surround a property. But fences play a more diverse role in landscaping.
Fences can help solve problems and create opportunities within a yard. These interior fences can also be called partitions, because they work just like walls do that are indoors, to enclose a space such as a swimming pool or a vegetable garden. Partition fences also help to define space in a more open way, improve property safety, and control views.
Fencing design is as much about location and configuration as it is height and detailing. Due to the flexibility of fencing, it can take on virtually any alignment from long sweeping curves to small box like enclosures. Fencing can be a strong design element or it can be made to disappear into the background of the landscape. All these decisions are made in the process of creating an overall site plan that is both attractive and functional.
There are many options in fencing materials. Wood, vinyl, and aluminum are all popular fence materials to use as partitions in your yard….whether it is to present a design or landscape focus point, or to conceal unsightly areas of your yard.
Vinyl fence offers far greater range of color and style than ever before. Aluminum fence is more light weight and much more affordable than wrought iron, yet has the same look, and is more easily adapted to a wide range of sites. Wood fence continues to remain popular and comes in many styles to fit your budget.
