There are many elements in landscaping that are installed for their looks and functionality and fences serve both these functions. Every property owner considers installation of fencing and there are a number of options available as well. This can make it difficult for you to pick up one that fits your requirement perfectly.

Types of Fences

Understanding the different types of fences and their features can help in making your job easy. Pools Patios Ponds can help you with all types of fences for homes in the Painesville area. The fencing you choose will be dependent on factors like material, privacy needs and budget:

  • Post and Rail- The major components in this variety of fences are the vertical posts & horizontal rails. They are functional and beautiful and these are typically made of wood, though some styles are available in vinyl as well. The latter are available in a range of colors and designs.

  • Privacy- These fences have a specific reason- Privacy! They create a boundary which is also a physical barrier. These are generally made with very large panels that hang on multiple vertical posts. They are very commonly used in residential backyards in homes across Mentor, Eastlake and Willowick, where there may be limited privacy. A lot of material goes into their making as they are almost like walls and will be made either of wood/ vinyl and tend to be more expensive than the other types of fencing.

  • Chain Link- These are extremely cost-effective and are used in spaces where the actual appearance is not of a major consideration. These are made of woven wire-mesh hung from multiple metal posts and the installation is very simple.

  • Wire- These are made from wire strands that are strung out between fence posts and are ideal for large spaces. They can be installed with ease and are ideal for large areas. In some cases, these can also have electricity running through them for extra security.

  • Picket- These are probably one of the most popular types of fences and have more of an aesthetic value. They can be used as effective boundary markers though they do not close-off an area completely. These fences have a rail that runs between the posts and vertical pickets are attached to these rails.

  • Snake or Stacked- If you require a fence in an area where it is not possible to install posts in the ground, snaked fences are a good option. This may also be referred to as a stacked fence and has stacked cedar rails, in a zigzag pattern.

  • Cast Iron- These are very similar to the quintessential picket fences. They have much smaller pickets and are made out of iron. They are generally very elaborately decorated and add a very elegant look to the property but tend to be expensive.

Aluminum ones are an alternative to these and costs much less. If you need any fences on your property, contact Pools Patios Ponds at 1270 Mentor Avenue Painesville Twp., OH 44077. We can provide you with the most cost-effective solutions and the best installation.
