Look, a fence in many neighborhoods is a necessary part of a complete yard. But before you install one, there are a few things you should consider. This infographic covers a few of the things you will want to consider before installing a fence on your lawn. 

What type of fence do you want to install?

The first thing to do is to know what you are looking for in a fence. Are you trying to deer-proof your lawn? Add privacy from the neighbors? Is it to keep a dog on the lawn? Or is it a security issue? Each of these reasons will help you determine what type of fence you are looking for. 

What type of materials will you use for your fence?

With so many types of fencing to choose from, picking the right type can be a challenge. And that is why it is so important to determine why you want a fence to begin with. Once you know the “why” you can begin to choose the “what”. The type of fencing you choose may depend on a few things including the colors you will want to choose, how much you want to invest, and how long you want the fence to last. 

Can I use different types of fencing in my yard? 

Yes, you can positively mix the types of fence. For example, you may want a nice wood or vinyl fence in your front yard, but the back where no one will really see can be a cheaper, chain link fence. Let's say to keep your dog in. 

Remember to Consult With Your Neighbor!

Before installing a fence that your neighbors will also have to live with. It's a wise idea to consult with them about what they think. And hey, maybe they will pitch in for a better fence too!
