Need A New Fence To Keep Dog In Your Yard? 3 Types To Choose From


If you have a dog, making sure that it's getting enough exercise is important. One way to do this is to let them run in your backyard. If you do not have it fenced in or your fencing is old, install new fencing. This will not only keep your dogs in your yard but prevents other animals from coming in. Below are three types of fencing that will work great for this purpose. 

Chain Link Fencing

If you are on a budget, chain link fencing can work well for this purpose. You do need to make sure the fence is tall enough so your dog does not jump over it. It also must be deep enough into the ground so your dog cannot dig under the fence. If you choose chain link fencing, make sure it is thick so your dog cannot chew through the fence.

The main drawback to chain link fencing is your dog can see through it, as well as other animals can see in. If your dog is the type of dog that barks a lot when it sees people, cars, or other animals, this may not be a good choice. If your dog is not like this, however, chain link fencing is economical, easy to care for, and will last a long time for you. 

Wood Fencing

Wood fencing is a good option since it is solid. This will help with you not having to listen to a lot of barking or any noisy neighbors close by. The wood fencing can give you privacy as well if it is tall enough. This may even help prevent people from getting into your backyard and causing damage or stealing from you. 

If you have a large dog that can jump you do need to ensure the wood fencing is tall enough so it cannot jump over the fence. Fortunately, wood fencing can be just about as tall as you want it to be. The best type of wood to use is cedar, redwood, or pressure-treated wood as these are the most durable and will last the longest for you. 

Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing is a great option as vinyl is durable and will not rot, split, warp, or twist. Vinyl fencing works great for large dogs or for dogs who like to stand against fencing or jump over it. Vinyl is very flexible so it can easily absorb weight and can be tall. Vinyl fencing is easy to take care of as you only have to clean it periodically. It is easy to clean and can be done with some soap, a water hose, and a rag.  

Vinyl fencing comes in a variety of heights, as well as colors. You can match the fencing to the colors of your home, scenery, and more. You can also choose vinyl fencing that is solid to act as privacy fencing.

Understanding Landscaping Planning

About a year ago, I realized that part of the reason the plants in my yard kept dying was the fact that they were planted in the wrong places. I didn't pay much attention to which plants needed certain amounts of light, and it was costing them their lives. Several of the plants were really struggling to live, and it was really hard to see. I realized that if I ever wanted to make things right, I would need to create a landscaping plan that would work well for the natural landscape of my yard. This blog is all about understanding landscaping.
