An attractive fence can add plenty of curb appeal to your home while functioning to enhance the quality of your life. Whether you are considering a fence to enclose a pool or play area, create privacy for your backyard get-togethers, or discourage trespassers, Mendocino Redwood fencing is the natural choice for beauty, harmony with the environment and long lasting durability.
Begin by asking yourself some basic questions about your fencing needs, keeping in mind your family’s lifestyle and budget:
- What is the purpose of your fence, and what kind of design will fit with your home’s style?
- What views would you like to block and which would you like to enhance? For example, if your yard borders a wooded area, you may want to frame and showcase your trees; if your yard backs to the street, you will probably want a taller fence for more privacy.
- Are there sections of the fence that will be incorporated into your garden design, with the use of climbing flowers, etc.?
- Do you have existing structures, such as arbors or trellises that will need to be considered?
As you answer these questions and get your Mendocino Redwood fence ideas down on paper, begin to sketch out a basic site plan and design. Look through some home improvement, landscaping or gardening magazines, check out our link to fence ideas, or download our Redwood Fences for All Reasons brochure for some great design ideas.
You’ll find there are many designs to choose from: traditional picket style; craftsman style; “dog-eared” for a Victorian look; latticework and basket weave, to name a few. Once you’ve decided on a style or styles that you like, take some measurements, compare costs and consult a professional for your final plan, if your budget allows.
And remember that Mendocino Redwood is the perfect choice for a fence that is economical, easy to maintain and naturally beautiful for many years to come.
