The height of your fence is probably one of the first things you’ll think about when considering a fence. Needless to say, privacy in your backyard is vitally important, and with a number of height options available, it’s important to choose the right height for your outdoor space.

Being able to easily get into your backyard is important, and we recommend considering the potential location of a gate or multiple gates. You’ll want to make sure that the new gates will fit with your new fence, but also, you should consider how new gates might affect traffic flow through your yard. We recommend choosing two new gates — one for each side of your new fence. Of course, no matter your needs, we can help!

As you consider your new fence, including the color and type of material, remember that different materials will require different levels of care. The most common new fence materials are vinyl, wood, and metal fencing. Each option has its pros and cons, and your choice may come down to how much maintenance you're willing to do.

Neighborhood Restrictions

Your new fence doesn’t just need to fit your needs — it also has to meet zoning or other restrictions in your neighborhood. We recommend contacting your homeowner's association or neighborhood board before installing new fencing to make sure that you aren't violating any local rules or restrictions.
