Fencing can be both utilitarian and beautiful. There’s no denying the beauty of an ornamental wrought iron fence. Round rail wood fences are undeniably rustic and charming. What about PVC, though? Can a vinyl fence be used to beautify your landscaping? Actually, that’s easily accomplished and there are a number of different ways you can do this.
There’s nothing quite as classic, cozy or quaint as a white picket fence surrounding your home. Of course, wooden picket fences require quite a bit of upkeep. You need to regularly clean them or they’ll become dingy. You need to regularly seal them or they’ll deteriorate. Eventually, they will rot away and you’ll have to replace the fence, too. However, a vinyl picket fence doesn’t come with those problems. Vinyl needs very little maintenance, other than the occasional cleaning, and these fences can last a lifetime.
Color Your World
With wood fencing, you’re limited by the colors available in stains or paint that will stand up to exposure to the outdoors. You’ll also have to repaint or re-stain pretty regularly. With a vinyl fence, you don’t have to worry about that at all, and you have tons of options to choose from. You’ll find classics like white or brown, but also black, green, sand/beige and many more, so you can easily color your world the way you want.
Looking for a way to add some style and privacy to your backyard? Consider a vinyl privacy fence. More durable than wood, these fences are available in a number of colors, and they’re strong enough to handle just about any disaster your backyard might experience, including baseball practice and active pets.
Vinyl Post and Slat Fences
Looking for a stylish way to fence in your yard? Consider a vinyl post and slat fence. This classic look is at once timeless and elegant, and can be used with just about any type of home architecture and design, whether you have a ranch, a Cape Cod, a Craftsman or something completely different.
Pool Fencing and Pool Deck Railing
If you have a pool in your yard, you know the importance of restricting access to it when no adult is present. You need to keep unsupervised kids out of the water, as well as pets who might wind up in a dangerous situation. A vinyl pool fence can work very well. With wide enough slats, you can have a perfectly transparent fence that still keeps children and animals away from the water. You can even install vinyl railings around above ground pools or your pool deck to add even more safety and style to your outdoor areas.
As you can see, there are plenty of ways that you can use a vinyl fence to beautify your landscaping. However, a word should be said about quality. Not all vinyl is the same. Low-quality vinyl fencing made outside of the US may not contain the additives needed to ensure that the material resists the damage caused by exposure to sunlight. In this instance, the fencing will eventually start to crack and deteriorate. High-quality fencing includes titanium oxide to prevent this from happening and create a fence that can last for a lifetime. Verify that the fencing is actually made in the USA.
If you need an install company, ensure that you’re working with a fencing company that is experienced at and has expertise installing vinyl fencing. Compare their product offerings, check out feedback from past customers, and ensure that you’re making an informed choice before buying from any company.
