Fence Buying Guide

Choose the fence that's right for you.

There are several reasons to put up a fence: privacy, borders, and architectural enhancement to name a few. No matter the reason, there’s a fence system to suit your home and landscape. From chain-link fencing to electronic pet containment, use our guide to decide which fence system fits your needs.

Wood Panel Fencing

Wood Panel Fencing

Wood panel fencing is commonly used as a decorative means of providing privacy for homes in neighborhood settings. It’s also a good choice for setting boundaries for small children and pets. The wood fence panels usually come in 6- or 8-foot sections, 4 to 6 feet tall. The panels are available with either dog-eared or pointed pickets. Paint or stain your fence to match your landscape or keep them natural. The panels are pressure-treated for above-ground use and pre-assembled for faster installation. Composite fencing is an alternative to wood. It’s made from recycled wood and plastic and offers lower maintenance with the look of real wood.

Post-and-Rail Fencing

Split Rail Fencing

Split Rail (or Post-and-Rail) fencing adds a rustic or country look to a home’s landscape. Use this fence to define specific areas in your yard or provide an easily visible separation along property lines. The rails are available either split or round in lengths from 8 to 11 feet. The two-rail posts range from 3 to 5 feet above ground.

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing is an attractive, relatively maintenance-free type of fencing. It’s available in forms similar to both wood panel and rail fencing. Vinyl fencing isn’t subject to rot, fading or other effects of weather and time as wood fencing. Vinyl is a good choice for an attractive, easily maintained fence system.
