Privacy fencing is an obvious choice for those with pets. This type of fence features pickets with no gaps between them, making it impossible for your furry friends to escape. Additionally, privacy fencing comes in various materials, providing options for different aesthetics.

Vinyl is the most popular material for privacy fencing, with brands like ActiveYards offering many different types of vinyl fencing products. The Dogwood by ActiveYards is a popular choice for residential neighborhoods.

Wood privacy fencing is a classic option that gives homes a rustic, lived-in feel. However, it requires more maintenance than vinyl fencing and usually needs a few coats of stain to achieve the desired look. Nonetheless, if you're looking for a more traditional fence, you can't go wrong with wood.

Composite fencing is a blend of vinyl and wood styles that offers the benefits of both materials. It does not splinter or rot, requires minimal maintenance, and has a unique, textured appearance. However, it is more expensive than both vinyl and wood fencing.

Aluminum Ornamental Fencing

Aluminum fencing is a trendy option in residential areas nowadays. It is sturdy, durable, low-maintenance, and provides a pleasing appearance. However, the pickets on this type of fence are spaced apart, which could allow smaller pets to escape.

Fortunately, there is a simple and cost-effective solution. ActiveYards offers "Puppy Picket," which involves attaching a section of half-spaced pickets to the lower third of your fence, leaving no room for your pets to slip through.

Chain Link Fencing

Although it lacks the aesthetic appeal of the options above, chain link fencing is a durable, cost-effective solution to keeping pets safely on your property. It will last forever with minimal maintenance and cost significantly less than most other fence materials. A great option for those with a large area to enclose or whose property value doesn't rely so heavily on curb appeal.
