The High Stakes of Fencing Design

Before you install a fence, be sure you know your fencing needs, and what kind of visual appearance or style you want to convey. Don't get second thoughts halfway into building a fence.

Stake Your Reputation on It

Another reason to plan your fence carefully is the impact it makes on your neighbors and community. Local ordinances might restrict the height and placement of your fence. And your neighbors certainly have a stake in whatever you put on their property lines.

Don't Box Me In

Remember that apart from complying with local ordinances and respecting your neighbors, there's more than one way to build a fence. Transcend the cheesy chain link fence and put up something to be proud of. You can even build it yourself if you have basic carpentry skills.
