Choose Your Backyard Fencing


If you are trying to decide on the best fencing for your backyard, then you should consider things like the view the neighbors have of your yard, whether or not you have dogs and whether or not you have kids. This article will help you to come to a decision that you will find yourself happy with after the security fence has been installed.

The right fencing if you have very close neighbors

If you have very close neighbors and you would like to enjoy some privacy when you are out in the backyard, you may want to have a wooden fence put up. This will give you the privacy you want so you can do things like sunbathe, do your daily yoga routine or garden in your short shorts if you want. You won't have to worry about your neighbors seeing you and making you feel self-conscious or watched. Also, you can leave things out in the back yard without feeling like you are giving someone an open invitation to take them, since they won't be able to see them. If you like the idea of chain link, you can compromise by putting up a chain link fence and then having wooden panels installed along it; this gives you the best of both worlds.

The right fence if you have dogs

If you have friendly dogs then you can have a chain link fence installed. This type of fence is more affordable than other options and it will do a good job of containing your dogs while keeping other dogs from coming into your yard to fight or even mate with your dogs. If your dog likes to fight, then you may want to add the wooden panels on the chain link so they can't lock fangs with dogs on the outside. A wrought iron fence will be great for keeping your dog in and also for preventing others from walking into your yard. Wrought iron is also very strong and weather resistant.

However, wooden fences may not be as good of an option with dogs because the dogs can chew through them over time. Or, the fences can become broken or weather damaged, allowing your dog to get out.  

The right type of fencing when you have kids

You may want to go with a wooden fence if you have kids who play in the backyard a lot, so you know that they aren't being watched by someone. However, it is a good idea to walk the perimeter often to make sure the fencing is in good condition. If you have kids and dogs, or you just like the added security of it, you may again want to think of chain link with wooden panels.
