Above and Beyond: Do More Than Just Settle for Functional Fencing

Functional Fencing

How can you go above and beyond with your home’s new fencing?

Thinking about installing a new fence this fall? Now that summer is almost completely gone, you may need to do just that. However, don’t just settle for plain functional fencing. If you’ve ever heard the phrase that form follows function, it’s true. But sometimes form can exceed expectations even if the function is supposed to be practical. Here are some ways to go above and beyond with your home’s new fencing. First, let’s look at materials to consider.

Wrought Iron

Wrought iron has long been a classic choice for rugged fencing. But you shouldn’t only choose it for its durability. There are plenty of ways to make this sturdy fence look beautiful. While you could always decide to stick to plain, solid black, why not choose a different color instead? Some colors you could think about using include white, bronze, or even pewter.


Wood fences may be commonplace, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stamp your personality and sense of style onto them. Choose complex lattices, old-school split rails, reliable privacy guards, or the iconic picket fences. Beyond the designs, you can also choose different colors. Painting and staining your fences will not only improve their looks but also help them last longer.


When it comes to installing a new fence, vinyl makes for a good choice. You’ll frequently find vinyl fences popping up everywhere, even in your neighborhood. PVC vinyl is so popular because it requires little maintenance, and is incredibly versatile as well. You can afford to be picky because vinyl offers a wide selection of different textures and colors for your consideration. Do you want solid vinyl? What about a blended pattern? Perhaps something even more exotic and distinctly you? Best of all, with vinyl, you can blend your fence in with the rest of your landscape (your cherished garden) or your home’s exterior (siding and trim).


Stone has been a dependable material for building structures and fences alike for centuries. Modern stone fences present sharp angles that are certainly eye-catching and can be as attractive as the stone retaining wall you have in your backyard.
