Wood panel fencing is a good option for privacy and a decorative fence. Children and pets are easily kept within the boundaries of the property. The wood panels can be either stained or painted to match the landscape, or they can remain natural looking. Panels should be pressure-treated and coated to slow rotting.

Vinyl fencing can be made to look similar to rail and wood panel fencing. Advantages of vinyl fencing are that it doesn't rot, the color doesn't face and it isn't susceptible to the weather.

Post-and-rail fencing is a good option for a more rustic or country style. This type of fence is used to show property lines and divide areas of the yard. Rail lengths include round and split that are usually available in anywhere from 8 to 11 feet.

Decorative metal fencing is made from aluminum or steel and made to look like wrought iron. The fencing is available in several different sizes and styles and easy to put together. Decorative metal fencing comes in a "no dig" option that uses a pronged post support for installation.
