Good fences cut clean lines through tangled boundaries, shepherd privacy and adorn homes with designer touches. When choosing fencing, consider the age and style of your home. While ornamental metal and wood fences match most homes, vinyl and composite fences often look nice with new construction
Also factor in the purposes of the fence: privacy, protection, beauty, functionality, noise reduction.
And don’t forget cost. “People set low-budget marks for fencing,” said Lea Bailes, president of Guier Fence. “Often their budget is one-third of what’s realistic.”
