With a wide range of outdoor fencing options out there, it can be tough to determine exactly the type of fencing system you require for your outdoor home project. From garden fencing to metal fencing to utility fencing to chain link fencing, the question today isn’t ‘What is there to buy?’ but ‘What should I buy?’ or more importantly ‘What should I buy that’s better than its competitors and will satisfy my specific needs?’
As a customer, you want easily accessible, quick and relevant information that will help you make a well-informed decision on a fencing system best suited to your needs. When all is said and done, it is still always a good idea to do your research and compare between fencing options so you can be confident in your fence purchase and installation.
In the realm of utility fencing, you have the option of galvanized fencing, welded fencing, plastic fencing or netting, mesh and more. Most types of utility fences have common uses that primarily fall under the following:
- Flower bed / garden fencing
- Animal and pet control fencing
- Rodent proofing
- Mulch and compost containment
- Predator cover for fish ponds
- Bird nesting / perching deterrent
These fences are normally constructed of either steel or plastic, and come in neutral, unobtrusive colours such as black or green that blends nicely with the garden or backyard area.
Specialized utility fencing such as safety fencing and snow fencing have specific uses that include:
- Construction site fencing
- Crowd control fencing
- Large event barriers
- Snow control barriers
- Warning barriers
Unlike the rest, safety and snow fencing come in bright and bold colours such as orange so that it is easily visible by onlookers.
