Ideas To Help Find The Right Fence Style For Your Yard
In our latest Saskatoon Landscaping article, we discuss fence style.
Fence Style Inspiration & Ideas
There are many reasons you build a fence. Sometimes it’s for separation or privacy from your neighbours, sometimes it’s to hide an unsightly view with a nicer one. No matter what your reason for installing a new fence is, there’s one major decision you have to make: what style of yard fence is right for you? If you’re looking for a practical way to keep your neighbours’ eyes off your backyard, privacy fences are the way to go, if you want a more open feel you have lots of options.
Chain Link Fence
When you’re looking for a basic fence to get the job done, these fences are your best options.
Easily the most economical and functional of all fence styles. A chain link fence is a great option if you’re looking to keep your pets in and your neighbours’ pets out. If you’re concerned about durability or rust, chain link fences can also be installed with a weather resistant vinyl coating.
White Picket Fence
Metal fences look great but be warned, they do come with a big price tag. Depending on how big your yard is, a metal fence may end up costing more than you bargained for. Luckily there’s a much cheaper alternative, aluminum! Aluminum is one of the least expensive metals used for fences and is durable and long-lasting- which is especially attractive in our Saskatchewan climate.
A bamboo privacy fence is a statement. Not only does a bamboo privacy fence make your backyard more discrete, but it also looks beautiful. Another benefit of bamboo fences is that they’re environmentally friendly and can be easily stained. While you may not think bamboo could work for your home in Saskatoon, you may be surprised to learn that bamboo is resistant to both excessive heat and snow! A real win-win for our harsh prairie climate.
Slatted Wood Fence
This slatted wood privacy fence not only looks great but it also helps to keep nosy neighbours out of your business. These fences are designed to allow some air and light to get through its thin horizontal slats. This way you can enjoy your privacy without feeling like you’re completely closed in.
Mixed Material Fence
Sometimes the need for a fence is less practical and more aesthetic.
