Fencing in your Future – Which Fencing Material is Right for You?

Fences are made from many different materials, and many different styles. This can make choosing a fence difficult. However, the decision of choosing a fence can be made easier. Before attempting to shop for a fence, a few preliminary steps can save you a lot of time. Furthermore, you will be less frustrated in the end.

The first step you should take in choosing a fence material is to decide what the purpose of the fence will be. Many people choose fences for the following reason:
  1. To protect against trespassers and burglars
  2. To create a boundary line
  3. For decoration
  4. To keep pets and children in the yard
  5. To stop animals from intruding
  6. For climbing plants
After you are done thinking about why you would want to make a fence, it is time to choose one. The following is a list of various types of fences:
  • Chain link
  • Barbwire
  • Picket fence
  • Wooden fence
  • Small garden fences
  • Electric fences
  • Invisible fence

Now you know the reasons why you would want a fence. Along with that, you know some types of fences. Now it is time to decide which fence is right for you. In order to do that, you need to know which types of fences are good for what purpose. In addition, you need to know which fences will be most practical in case you choose a fence for more that one reason.

For instance, a chain link fence can keep pets or children in a yard, and it also keeps out trespassers and burglars. A second example would be the use of the barbwire fence. This fence marks the boundary line of a farm property, and also aids in deterring intruders. Just like a chain link fence, a wooden fence can keep pets and children in the yard. However, it is a little different than the chain link fence. The difference it that a wooden fence is more attractive looking than a chain link fence. Nevertheless, it serves more than one purpose, as most fences do.

Now, you know some of the purposes of the barb wire, chain link, and large wooden fence. The other types of fences serve a similar purpose as those three. For example, the picket fence is much like the use of a wooden fence, only smaller. It also is more decorative than the chain link fence. However, it does not do much for protecting a home against intruders. Picket fences are usually only about three feet high. Now you know the main difference between a picket fence and a wooden fence. However, there are exceptions. Sometimes tiny picket fence can be places close to shrubs, flowers, or gardens. This is to stop small animals such as squirrels, mice, rabbits, and chipmunks from intruding. They might run into the fence, and then turn around and go the other way. The tiny picket fence is a type of small garden fence.

Other small garden fences can be placed around tomato and bean plants for a similar reason as the picket fence. These also serve something for the plants to climb on. Also, smaller versions of the chain link fence serve to keep animal intruders out of your garden.

Another type of fence is the electric fence. This is similar to the barbwire fence. An electric fence is also known as an invisible fence because someone usually doesn’t see it. Then, if a person or animal does not know the fence is there, that person or animal bumps into it. Then, they get a shock. Then, they know not to cross that line. Most people know how to climb over it though. The main use is to block farm animals from entering another person’s pasture.

A more modern of the electric fence is a fence that actually is invisible. It serves a similar purpose, and has the same affect on a person or animal as the electric fence. The only difference is that it is literally invisible. A variation of this type of fence is found in Jewelry stores. The invisible fence usually surrounds valuable jewelry locked up in a display case. Also, it is attached to an alarm that goes off when the burglar crosses the invisible beam.

There you are. You know all about fences now-or at least more than you did before you read this article. Keep this information handy to help you make a wise choice in choosing a fence.
