If you are thinking of revamping your home’s exterior, the first thing you might consider is landscaping and hardscaping; but what about your fence?
After you make the investment and do all the work to create a backyard oasis, you want privacy. So, it makes sense that hardscape, landscape, and fencing go hand-in-hand.
Luckily, you do not have to worry about vetting multiple companies to get what you want for your home’s exterior. Instead, use the team at Deer Fencers for all your home’s fencing needs, then turn to our sister company, Sabia Landscaping, for your hardscape and landscape needs.
What is Hardscaping Anyway?
Hardscapes are the non-living elements of your yard. These can include everything from patio surfaces to retaining walls and even arbors. Landscaping has two primary categories, and hardscape is one of those two – while softscape is the other.
If it consists of wood, metal, brick, concrete, stone, or plastic, it is classified as hardscape. However, ponds, fountains, and water features can also fall into the hardscape category.
What is the Best Fence Material to Pair with Hardscaping?
It all comes down to the design when choosing your fence material. Also, your budget plays a role in which fence material works best for your property. Some materials popular with hardscaping include:
- Cedar (Wood) Fence: Cedar fences are popular for privacy, and cedar itself is known for its ability to withstand the elements – as long as it is cared for properly. Cedar has fewer knots, a tight grain, and an aesthetically pleasing red color. It also naturally resists rot, decay, and insects. If it is properly treated before installation, it will not suffer soil rot on the posts either. However, you still need to apply a penetrating seal each year and keep up with replacing panels as they become damaged.
- Vinyl Fence: Vinyl fencing takes away the task of annual maintenance, however, in return, you will pay more upfront. Vinyl can last for decades, requires very little maintenance, and most varieties have high-speed wind resistance too. Some manufacturers are bold enough to offer lifetime warranties on their fencing – just showing you how long this product can last.
- Metal Fence: Metal fences come in a variety of styles ranging from contemporary to classic. You can pick almost any variety to suit your home, and wrought iron is incredibly durable. However, you should always hire a contractor when installing metal fences, and make sure you get a properly treated metal fence; whether you choose wrought iron, cast iron, steel, or aluminum.
- Chain Link: Chain link is one of the least expensive options out there, but it still gets the job done. If you have a larger property that you want to be fenced off, but you do not need privacy from neighbors or those passing by, then chain link might be the best option. If, however, you live in a busy neighborhood, chain link will not give you the privacy you would have with other varieties.
