If you are a pet owner looking to ensure the safety of your furry friends on your property, installing a home fence is an essential step in providing that security. You may consider numerous fence styles and materials that suit pets of all sizes. Determining the best fencing options for pet owners depends on the pet’s size and activity and the household’s lifestyle. If you have kids in addition to pets, you may consider them as well when designing your fence. When you are ready to create your new pet fence, call Hercules Fence of Richmond for incredible designs.
Privacy fencing is one of the most appealing fencing options for pet owners. This style of fence features pickets with no gaps between them, which makes it impossible for pets to escape or to notice other animals and pedestrians beyond the fence that may irritate them. Privacy fences come in many materials:
- Vinyl: The most popular option, vinyl privacy fences fit most residential home designs.
- Wood: Privacy wood fences give your home a rustic, lived-in feel. However, wood fences require a bit more maintenance and staining to stay attractive.
- Composite Fencing: A blend of wood and vinyl styles offers benefits of both. It doesn’t splinter or rot, requires minimal maintenance, and has a unique appearance.
Aluminum fencing is a trendy option for residential properties. It is a sturdy, durable, low-maintenance option that creates a beautiful appearance. However, the pickets on this type of fence are quite narrow and placed apart from each other. This can create gaps that smaller pets may fit through. Fortunately, you can design aluminum fencing with “puppy pickets,” a line of half-spaced pickets near the bottom of the fence (at the height of your small dog or puppy), prohibiting escape.
Chain Link Fencing
It may lack the aesthetic appeal of the fencing options for pet owners mentioned above, but chain link fencing is a durable and cost-effective solution. Chain link fences require minimal maintenance and provide long-lasting security. Chain link may be best if you have a large area to enclose or a specific dog enclosure.
When you create a pet fence with the professionals at Hercules Fence of Richmond, you can give your pet the freedom of movement and let them outside without your constant supervision–while knowing they will be safe from escape and neighborhood wildlife.
