White arbor in a garden

When it comes to purchasing a new fence , you are faced with a multitude of options. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to ensure that you make an informed decision. Here is a closer look at the easy ways to narrow down your fence options.

Purpose
The first way to narrow down your search for the perfect fence is to consider the reason you need a fence in the first place. Different types of fences have different strengths, so it is easy to find the right one for your needs. If you want a fence so you can mark a boundary or property line, a small picket fence will do just fine. On the other hand, if you need a fence to keep your pets in your yard, you could use a larger chain link fence; be sure that the fence is tall enough that animals cannot escape. If you would like to increase your level of privacy and also block sound, a solid wooden fence may be best for your needs.

Maintenance
Just like different fences serve different purposes, they also require varying levels of maintenance. Wooden fences can become warped or decayed after extensive exposure to the elements, and thus will need periodic maintenance. Smaller picket fences can continue to mark boundary lines, but if you want the classic “white picket fence” look, you will need to apply new coats of paint from time to time.

Aesthetics
Those who like the look of wooden fences but do not have the time for maintenance may enjoy vinyl or PVC fences. Most fences can be customized and decorated in order to create an aesthetically pleasing landscape; even chain link fences can facilitate the growth of climbing plants. Think about the look you are trying to portray before purchasing your fence.
