6 Backyard Fencing Ideas for 2020

If you spent last summer wishing that you had more privacy, more security, or even a quieter yard, then 2020 is definitely the time to take back your yard. Adding a fence to your property can make your life a little easier, increase your property’s value, or even take your landscaping to the next level. 

But what kind of fence should you invest in? You want one that will last, that meets your family’s needs, or that helps you create the haven that you envision for your home. Whatever your priorities are for fencing, at Fencing Direct we have a variety of backyard fencing choices for your lifestyle.

Backyard Fencing Idea 1: Aluminum Fence

Aluminum fences are a beautiful high-quality choice for when you want to keep in pets or children, while still allowing you to see around your neighborhood. As a hardscaping option, it can provide a beautiful backdrop for bushes or flowers, and at the same can mark the boundaries of your property. It is an appealing and practical way of preventing trespassing while also adding to your home’s value. 

We offer a variety of finishes and finials to distinguish your good-looking aluminum fence from others in your neighborhood. The upkeep on aluminum fences is minimal; just a simple power washing should take care of any dirt, spider webs, or moss. Uneven yards, hills, and even funny little corners can still easily be fenced as this type of fencing can be cut to fit any size.

If you’ve thought about putting in a backyard pool, then chances are you’ve also had to think about how to protect children from it. Our aluminum fences meet BOCA swimming pool code, and we can accommodate any HOA requirements you may have as well. This type of fencing allows visibility into the pool in an attractive manner, and still keeps your family safe from the water.
