Why Choose The Right Fencing?

Selecting the right fence for your property will depend on what you want the fencing to do for you. Are you looking for privacy? Do you need security, or are you doing this simply from the decoration point of view? Well, there could be more – do you need a fence to contain pets or children or do you simply need a perimeter demarcation line?

With so many functions that a fence serves, often you’ll find that it is in fact a mix of all the above options that you need, rather than just an isolated reason. With this in mind, we can evaluate which common fences may be best for you.

If privacy is the watch word in your selection you’ll want something relatively tall, without gaps, durable, yet cost effective. Often you’ll find that timber fences will cover all these bases for you. You’ll be looking at a typical fence panel initially on the basis of affordable price and easy installation process. Fence panels come in standard heights from 3ft through to 6ft, and being of standard width, they are easy to install and maintain over time.

If security is your aim you’ll be looking for a fence with height and structural strength. The best security can be achieved with a rigid mesh fence system mounted on steel posts in heights from 6ft through to 8ft, or alternatively a steel palisade fence which can be up to 3m high.

If decoration is your main concern, look for the least expensive: wooden trellis fencing, picket fencing, decorative fence panels and metal railings can be worth considering. Budget and appearance will be the main deciding factors, although generally the more you spend the more durable the fence will be.

If you require containment for children or pets, you have many options ranging from waist high timber rail fences clad with an animal mesh, to the security fences previously discussed. Deciding how much and what type of containment you require, will be down to what you are trying to contain. Containing a horse will require a fence with different characteristics to a fence for containing children!
