Dogs bring much joy to our lives, and plenty of people have adopted new canine best friends over this past year. If you own a dog, you likely need space for it to exercise outdoors. The backyard is the best place, but it is only suitable if it has a proper fence. Here are several fencing ideas for dogs that can work great with your home as well.
Wire Mesh or Chain Link Fencing
Chain link fencing is perhaps not the most stunning of fencing ideas, but it has many benefits, such as affordability, strength, and low maintenance. You can have a fence with all the perks, and your dog can still look out to the other side. If you’re looking for something fancier, a wire mesh fence can look stunning with many different designs available. It usually combines with a different material like wood or perhaps vinyl.
Lattice fencing can comprise of either wood or vinyl, both popular and appealing materials. They will cost more and require a little more maintenance, especially wood. Even so, lattice fencing can make a beautiful addition to your landscape, add some privacy, and still let your dog look out to the other side.
Aluminum fencing is the strongest type available. It gives a home a stately appearance and can come in several colors such as black, gold, and green to blend in with your landscape. It is also the most expensive option. Once again, it will likely have no problem keeping your pet within bounds and is see-through.
For the homeowner that desires more privacy for backyard living, picket fencing is one way to compromise. Some people may choose a short picket fence so that their dog can pop its head up to look over it. Meanwhile, you can choose your level of fence maintenance by going with either vinyl, composite, or wood.
Lastly, one can go all the way and have a privacy fence. Made of wood, vinyl, or composite, this is the best solution for both privacy and some level of sound-proofing. It is even more advantageous if you live on a busy street or have a pool. If your dog still really wants to see the other side, you can always cut some eye and nose holes for it!
