It can be hard to understand why some fences work better than others. Depending on the situation, one fence could perform beyond your wildest expectations, while other types fall short of what you had in mind. Part of the issue is just how many kinds of fences there are, and the many ways they can be stylized– after all, everyone wants their fence to look amazing. It’s important to be familiar with the different types of fences, but it’s even more important to be familiar with the kind of terrain they’ll be put over– AKA, your lawn.
The Right Place for the Job
The very first thing that needs to be understood about fences and the kind of terrain you’ll be putting them on is that the flatter the ground, the better it is for a fence. It’s not impossible to plant a fence on uneven ground, but it is significantly harder to do so. A nice, even surface gives you the freedom to put fence posts of the same height in the ground, eliminating any risk of measuring something incorrectly and having your fence posts look uneven, accordingly. It would also be a good idea to avoid areas with unsteady elements, such as muddy ones. What you’re looking for is nice, firm soil stretched over a plain as large as you want your fence to be.
Which Fence Works Best for You
Just as there are many types of earth– clay, limestone, soil, etc.– there are many types of fences. Chain link fences, wrought iron fences, aluminum fences, automatic gates… the list goes on. What each fence is best at varies drastically, so it’s a good idea to know ahead of time why you want your new fence. Do you want a fence primarily to protect your belongings? Do you want a fence that looks good? Of course, you don’t have to settle on one of the two! All fences we offer boast wonderful durability and come in many eye-catching styles. For example, if you’re in the market for a fence that simply oozes elegance, wrought iron fences are a fantastic fit for you. If you’re in charge of a large, privately owned piece of land, you may want to insure it with a cost-efficient and very protective chain link fence.
