The old expression “Good fences make good neighbors” is true, but it’s only half the story. This refers strictly to perimeter fences that surround a homesite. But fences play a more diverse role in landscaping where they help solve problems and create opportunities within a homesite. These interior fences may be called “partitions”, because they work just like walls indoors to enclose a space such as a swimming pool vegetable garden. But partition fences also help to define space in a more open way, improve homesite safety, and control views.

Fencing design is as much about location and configuration as it is height and detailing. Due to the flexibility of fencing, it can take on virtually any alignment from long sweeping curves to small box like enclosures. Fencing can be a strong design element or it can be made to disappear into the background of the landscape. All these decisions are made by your landscape designer in the process of creating an overall site plan that is both attractive and functional.

“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.“

Never before have there been so many options in fencing materials. Much of this is due to the rising cost of lumber and the drive to create non-wood alternatives that are more long lasting. In fact, this innovative area has yielded some truly remarkable options, particularly where climate is severe. Vinyl has finally come of age, offering far greater range of color and style than ever before.

Wrought iron, now tubular and much more light weight is far more affordable and easily adapted to a wide range of sites. The resurgence of interest in modern architecture and man-made materials such as metals that go beyond traditional chain link bring a fresh new face to otherwise time worn fence styles.
