• Forms and Functions of Fences

    The classic images of white picket fences are as American as apple pie and baseball. But times have changed, and so have the styles and materials available to give your property a fresh look. Whether you are looking for some added privacy or a little more curb appeal, or both, today’s fencing options offer a wide variety to satisfy the form and function you are looking for, while complementing your existing architecture and color palette.

    Privacy fences are built for… you guessed it: privacy and security. Keeping your space private by obscuring the view from the outside world is often achieved with a contiguous wall or tightly woven wood or PVC.

    Post and rail fences consist of a series of vertical posts and horizontal rails with an open look; they are the classic farm or ranch fences. They do not obscure the view so much as provide a boundary or separation of spaces and some added physical security.

    Chain link has come a long way in recent years. While among the cheapest options, these fences come in a variety of vinyl-coated colors and provide an excellent physical barrier to keep the kids in or the strays out. They can also be fitted with strips of vinyl for added privacy.

    Of course the classic picket fence is a timeless option for just about any home. Customize the color, style and spacing of the pickets to achieve your desired aesthetic while balancing security and privacy.

    Ornamental fencing is often made of aluminum and provides a refined look, with low maintenance and high durability. They provide a solid physical barrier without overshadowing the existing landscaping.
