Fern Bishop. Fence. July 11th , 2018.
Yep, you guessed it after being burned enough we decided (in the beginning) to forgo the professional assistance and try this home improvement on our own. The first thing we did to get started is by contacting our local township to look into any local ordinances that may prevent us from using certain fences and materials. We are in an area that is not governed by an HOA but if you are you will also want to check in with them before you begin your project or purchase materials to make yourself aware of any special restrictions.
Landscaping your property is a huge investment and you can make use of the services of a fence company to make it look beautiful. An attractive fence can enhance the landscape. You can match the fence design to the landscape to create your own unique style. A good fence can be a decorative item to your lawn and can help increase the overall appeal and value of your property.
The style of the fence should match, or complement, the style of the house plans architecture as well as the landscaping. Be sure to research how boards can be cut, the various cap options, lattice options, and if there will be gates in the fence.
When all the stringers have been installed it is time to attach the fence pickets. Cedar fence pickets should be as thick as possible. Try to avoid the thin pickets that are sold at the big box stores. They may cost less but in the long run they are not worth it. Thin pickets will cup and warp over time. It also helps if the pickets are rough sided rather than smooth. Rough cedar will accept stain and/or preservative much more readily than smooth wood will.
These days, there are plenty of options for homeowners who want the privacy of a solid style cedar fence but don't want a yard that blends in with everyone else's. If you're looking for a fence with a bit of flair, there are a variety of customization options available.
