Vinyl VS Wood Fence

If you’re considering installing a new fence you may have to choose between vinyl and wood. A wood fence over time will take more maintenance than a vinyl fence, but is easier to repair and has a cheaper upfront cost. Vinyl fences stand up to weathering and will keep a freshly painted look longer than a wood fence.

Boundary Fence

A boundary fence is a fence constructed on a property line between two neighboring plots of land. Because the fence is partially on both of the neighbor’s land, the ownership of the fence is shared. The boundary fence is located right along the property line and is equally in both neighbor’s yards.

Fence Options for Dogs

If you have any pets, especially dogs, it is important to maintain a safe outdoor area for them to play and exercise in. Alternative fencing options such as invisible fences and shock collar systems may offer an extra boundary for your pet, but they lack the reliability and safety that a conventional fence has.

What to Know About Chain Link

Chain link is one of the most affordable fencing options. Because of the minimal resources needed to build, it is very accessible for most home and property owners. Because of galvanized or protective paint and coatings, the metal is protected from rust and disrepair. The interweaving wire also makes it easy and affordable to repair cuts in fences.


Best Fence Plants

Plants are a great way to enhance your fence, whether you’re looking to add some flair to your yard or add a little extra privacy between yourself and your neighbor. When considering the kind of plants you’d like for your fence, there are several factors to think about such as what kind of plants you’d like and the maintenance that goes with them.
