Choose the Right Fence Material and Style

There are various materials and styles available when it comes to residential fencing, each with its unique benefits and aesthetics. Wood, vinyl, aluminum, and chain-link are some of the most popular options. Consider the purpose of your fence and the desired appearance to help narrow down the right choice for your landscaping.

Wood fences offer a classic, warm look and can be customized with paint or stain to match your home's exterior. 

Vinyl fencing is low-maintenance and available in a variety of colors and styles. 

Aluminum fences are durable, lightweight, and can be designed to mimic the look of wrought iron. 

Chain-link fences are an affordable, secure option that can easily blend in with your surroundings using vinyl coating or slats.

Consider the Purpose of the Fence

A fence can serve multiple purposes, such as providing privacy, security, or simply add visual interest to your landscape. Reflect on the primary function of your fence to help guide your decision-making process.

If privacy is your top priority, consider a taller fence with little to no gaps between the panels or pickets (privacy fencing). The Dogwood Privacy Vinyl Fence from ActiveYards is a tried and true crowd favorite. 

For security purposes, a sturdy material like aluminum or chain-link is an ideal choice. For aluminum fencing, we recommend the Granite style, also from ActiveYards.

To enhance the aesthetics of your landscape, choose a fence style that complements your home's architectural design and surrounding greenery. Feel free to give us a call to speak with one of our residential sales staff to discuss your specific needs.

Integrate Plants and Hardscape Elements

Incorporating plants and hardscape features, such as decorative rocks or pavers, can help your fence blend seamlessly with your landscape. Use plants to create visual interest, soften hard lines, and provide additional privacy.

Consider planting a mix of perennials, annuals, and shrubs along the base of your fence to create a lush, colorful border. Use taller plants like trees or trellises with climbing vines to create a sense of depth and height. Hardscape elements, like pathway pavers, stepping stones, and retaining walls, can also help to tie your fence into the overall landscape design.

Plan To Include At Least 1 Gate for Easy & Secure Access

If you're looking for a convenient and secure way to access your property, consider incorporating a gate or two into your fencing design. At Hurricane Fence Company, we offer both manual and automated gates (gate operators). Speak with our sales staff to find the right solution for you!

Maintain Your Fence to Preserve Its Beauty and Functionality

Regardless of the fence material you choose, regular maintenance is essential to ensure your fence remains visually appealing and functional. Wood fences require periodic sealing or staining, while vinyl and aluminum fences may need occasional cleaning to keep them looking their best. Inspect your fence regularly for signs of wear or damage and address any issues promptly to prolong its lifespan.
