When it's time to build a fence for your property, you may be overwhelmed by the number of options from which to choose, both in terms of materials and design. Those two factors are intimately related (the choice of one affects the choice of the other), so materials and design will be considered together in this FAQ.
In the planning stage of building a fence (or having one built by a professional), most homeowners will want to give equal consideration to the following:
- Form (i.e., stylistic considerations)
- Function (i.e., what practical purpose the fencing will serve)
The links below will take you to answers to frequently asked questions on fence materials and design. As a pictorial aid to use in conjunction with this FAQ, please visit my photo gallery of fence pictures.
