Before commencing any fence installation project, it is imperative that one asks himself what is the motive behind the installation in the first place. Are you doing it strictly for the utilitarian purpose, such as to keep the pets confined? If so, a basic chain-link fence may solve the purpose.
If the idea is to block the noise or enhance privacy, you would want to resort to something solid and tall. Most of the times people’s wishes are too complex; they may want to protect the pets, and at the same time they may wish to add a decorative ornament to the front yard and entire property.
A fence can function in more than one ways, but before that you need to list down and decide what purpose you wish to solve, so that you can make right fence choice and make it work best for the property.
Next consideration is about material selection. A traditional choice; white picket fences are quintessential, but you would need a commitment before making the purchase, since wood posts are going to demand occasional whitewash, repair, and staining.
But wood is popular for its natural appeal and beauty. If your consideration is a low-maintenance material and aluminum would make an ideal selection. They require from little to almost no repair or maintenance. Other popular fencing materials are wrought iron, bamboo, and steel.
