Fences and Arbors

--Good Fences Make Good Neighbors--

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors. That is what Robert Frost claims in his  famous poem, The Mending Wall.  Whether or not that is a true statement (some people might feel that fences put up walls between neighbors), if you decide you need a fence, don't just fence, make it attractive!  Fences can be constructed out of bamboo, giving it more of an oriental look.  For a more formal look that needs less maintenance, wrought iron is a good choice.  Vinyl fencing comes in many attractive styles, is low in cost, and very durable.  Wood fencing is very popular and comes in many different types of wood: redwood, cedar, pine, fir, and spruce.  Add an Arbor to create interest and also provide for additional privacy.
