Choosing the right fence for your home can make all the difference. Whether you are looking for privacy, keeping the kids safe or your four legged friends happy, you want a fence to fit your specific needs, looks amazing, and is budget friendly.
Things to Consider
When looking for the best fencing option for your property, there are a few things you should consider.
If you have a dog, especially a large dog, you may want to consider a 6 foot high fence. You can be sure they won’t jump over or fit through.
Does your pet need privacy or do you want them to see what’s going on outside the fence? If you don’t want them to bark at everything they see, a vinyl privacy fence may be the best option.
You would be surprised how many dogs can climb. If this is something you worry about, you may want to stay away from aluminum, chain link, and split rail.
If you have a dog that likes to dig, then you may need to add wire or stones underneath the fence while it’s being installed. This can keep your mischievous friend form escaping and save you a lot of headaches later.
Barking can become a real problem and irritate the neighbors. We all know how territorial dogs can be, barking and growling if someone comes close to your home. A vinyl fence can block all those sights, and sounds your dog sees outside the fence, that encourage Fido to bark.
If you don’t want to enclose your entire yard with a fence or want a double fence barrier, you may also consider a dog run. A dog run is a long, narrow enclosed space that is fenced off in your yard. A dog run can be a good option for a pet that is especially difficult to contain or spends a lot of time outside. A sturdy roof can protect your dog from the elements while providing a safe space to exercise and be outdoors.
We love our pets, but unfortunately each year road related injuries claim the lives of around 1.2 million dogs in the United States. A properly secured fence can go a long way in keeping the family pet safe. Not only keeping our cherished member of the family safe from going onto the road, but also from other animals and people coming into the yard.
