Fencing can be used for many purposes, from providing you with privacy and security to enhancing the aesthetics of your home. Below are some types of fencing you can choose, as well as the benefits of choosing this for your yard.

Types of Fencing

There are many types of fencing to choose from including:

Chain Link

Chain link fencing is budget friendly and does not require a lot of maintenance. Chain link fencing does not offer a lot of security, however, so this is something you need to consider. You can choose from a variety of heights, however, which can prevent a dog from jumping over the fence. 


Steel fencing is durable and offers you medium security. Steel fencing is more aesthetically pleasing when compared to chain link fencing. Because of the way this fencing is made, it will not offer you privacy but is low in maintenance.

Wrought Iron

Wrought iron fencing is more expensive but does offer you security. Wrought iron is low maintenance and is aesthetically pleasing. Many people put caps on the fencing to provide an ornamental finish. You should be aware that the verticals are wide so if you have a dog they may squeeze through the spaces. 

Wood Fencing

If you want complete privacy, wood fencing is a good option. You can choose just about any height you want for the fencing. One thing to consider is the wood must be stained and treated to prevent pests, such as termites, from causing damage to the wood. You can also paint the wood fencing if you prefer. 

Fencing Benefits

There are many benefits of installing fencing around your property. It can be used to protect children as well as pets. If you choose a tall fence someone could not climb over the fence and get inside your yard. If you choose a wood fence, dogs cannot see out of it so will not bark at people or cars passing by. 

If you live in a neighborhood, you can use a fence to mark your boundaries. This will ensure your neighbor does not build on your land. Contact your county or a land survey contractor to determine your boundaries if you are not sure where they are. 

Fencing can act as a barrier to reduce noise from nearby streets, highways, or neighbors, creating a quieter and more peaceful environment within your property. Additionally, solid fences can help control and redirect wind flow, providing sheltered areas and protecting delicate plants or outdoor seating areas from strong gusts.
