As discussed in previous blogs, fences come in a variety of materials, but each material also has a variety of styles  that can be built

Decorative Fences in Aluminum, Vinyl, or Cedar

Decorative Fences help transform ordinary landscapes into beautiful outdoor living areas.  They add elegance, character, and style to any home. This style of fence not only adds beauty to the property but also adds privacy and security. The wide range of materials, colors, designs, and decorative features truly allows you to customize your fence to match your home’s exterior and landscape.

Cedar Fences

Cedar can be crafted into a number of styles.  One of the more common styles is a Shadowbox Fence.  This creates a unique combination of privacy and ventilation.  The placement of boards is alternated which allows light and air to pass through, creating a semi-private environment. For a more private option, there is Board on Board or Solid Board fences.  These two eliminate the light and air that come through the shadow box and create a solid wall between your yard and the outside environment. 

Picture Frame Fences in Cedar

Picture frame fences made from cedar elevate the classic fencing look with a refined touch. These fences frame each section of the fence like a picture, enhancing the overall appearance of your outdoor space. Cedar’s natural resistance to decay and insects makes picture frame fences not only visually appealing but also durable and long-lasting.

Spear Top Fences

Spear-top fences in aluminum combine security with decorative appeal. The spear-shaped pickets serve as a deterrent to intruders while adding an elegant architectural element to your fence. Aluminum spear top fences are perfect for homeowners looking for a stylish yet secure fencing solution.

Fences with Trellis

Fences with trellis tops can be constructed from cedar, aluminum, or vinyl, offering versatility in design and material choice. A trellis adds a vertical garden space to your fence, allowing for climbing plants and creating a lush, living boundary. This option combines the beauty of nature with the functionality of a fence, suitable for those looking to add a green touch to their property.
