Fabulous Fencing Options

Posted on 01 March 2011



Have you ever heard of a fence without nails? Yes, that is correct. A fence built without using any nails or other hardware, is possible. Split rail fences are typically produced from rough sawed cedar and are split lengthwise into rails. Typically used for agricultural barriers, but more commonly, they are used for decorative residencial fencing.  

Split rail fencing is a trendy design sought out for its simple construction, western look, ability to gently define property boundaries and because they are ideal to build into hard or rocky ground, such as we have in Colorado.

Split rail fencing is usefu for managing livestock and horses, as well. Throughout Colorado, cedar is used as the idea wood choice but more affordable options are available as well. This rustic western look is found throughout the front range as a practical, durable and creative fencing alternative.

Vinyl fencing can also be utilized when a home owner is particular about privacy. This style is seen in more traditional but modern home settings with pools, small animals or kids.  It has proven to be very durable, washable and still decorative to the surrounding community.

Many HOAs allow vinyl fencing as their fence of choice.  Here are some of the best reasons to go vinyl:

  • Low Maintenance – never have to repaint or repair
  • Affordability – lower cost than other options and can be assembled yourself, if desired
  • Durability – withstands Colorado weathering
  • Easy assembly and disassembly

Electric Dog Fencing is very common and completely seemless, in fact, they are invisible.  Ideal for keeping your dog in and away from danger. No need to alter your landscape. They are electric and can be installed wirelessly.

Iron Fencing is another option. More stylish and an entirely different ornamental look and feel can be obtained when using wrought iron.  This style is often used when a gate is needed. Metal fences are the most durable fence option but it is also the most expensive.

Installing a fence can either be a “Do It Yourself” project or one to hand off to a contractor. When hiring a contactor, keep in mind, often times they will supply their own materials. Depending on the contractor, it might make more sense for you to supply your own materials to save on cost of materials or to ensure your hand picked quality.

Regardless of your yard, there are many fabulous fencing options. Keep in mind the aethetics, the purpose, and your budget and it can be an easy choice to make that may even enhance your landscape.
