Robert Frost once said, “Good fences make good neighbors”. If that is the case, then picking the right type of fence is also important. So how do you choose the right style to complement your home and garden design? There are many elements to consider, not withstanding longevity, aesthetics, maintenance requirements, and of course the overall cost as compared to your budget.
There are many varieties of fence choices ranging from inexpensive chain-link to a wide variety of wooded options all the way to elaborate ornamental wrought iron fencing, which add an air of elegance to any yard or garden landscape.
For the homeowner with an eye for design wrought iron is often the fence option of choice, due to the rich, elegant look it provides and the wide variety of elaborate designs available from which to work.
The cost of materials, production, and installation does tend to run a little higher than other fencing options, however, the many benefits of wrought iron fencing generally make it worth the additional cost.
Some of the benefits of wrought iron include its durability which far out lives all other fencing options. Don’t forget how relatively maintenance free this type of fencing is; especially with a coat of paint every few years to protect from normal weather related corrosion that is to be expected in iron work pieces.
Security surrounding your property is heightened due to its strength it is incredibly difficult to break. And privacy need not suffer, as a good wrought iron fence may be the perfect base for heavy flowering vines, such as wisteria or line the perimeter with beautiful shrubbery.
