What is the purpose of a fence?
Fences incorporate boundaries from the neighbors or the community in general. It secludes us from the rest of the world. Fences give a feel of who you are and add a dimension to your property.
Fences can be uncomplicated, yielding, multifaceted, or rigid. Fences can be a bridge between nature and man, a combination that is pleasing to the eyes and senses. The main concept of having fences is to protect the house or enclose a section of the house from stray animals like in flower and vegetable gardens or to keep small kids from playing around it for safety like in pool fences.
Other than this, fences strongly impact the overall attractiveness of the space and the whole aesthetics of the house through the landscape. Poor choice on the type of fence relative to the design of the house is just disappointing and lacks personality.
