  1. 1. Choosing the Best FenceWhen it comes to fencing your property, you need to make sure that you choose an option that is well-suited to your lifestyle and your home. There are several things to consider when fencing your property.PurposePrivacy is important to most of us we view our homes as a safe haven and retreat from the world andwe fence ourselves off, in part, to cut the world out. If you have nosy neighbours or live on a busy street,a privacy fence is more important. A privacy fence provides a shield against people looking in.On the other hand, security may be your number one priority and so a different fence will be necessary.Depending on the area that you live in, you may need a security fence to keep bad people out.Containment of pets and young children is another reason for someone to build a fence the type andheight of this kind of fence will depend on how big the animals are and/or the ages of the children.Aesthetics also play a role some people need a fence to round off their property rather than for purelypractical reasons.PricingFencing materials come in a range of various types and finishes and a wide range of prices. A simplechain wire fence will often work out to be the most cost effective option. It is sold per metre and theprices depend on what gauge wire you want.Steel fences, such as security fences, usually come in panels and the price charged is per panel ratherthan per metre.Check Before you BuyBefore you even get onto the subject of what fence to buy, however, it is important to make certain thatyou are sure of your propertys boundaries. Consult the plans for your lot and confer with neighbours toensure that there will be no future problems.You should also check out anything along the boundaries that could get in the way of the placement ofthe fence. Trees and big rocks, for example, could pose a serious problem and may need to be moved orworked around.A good way to check this out and measure for the fence at the same time is to drive stakes into theground and run string around them to block off the area that the fence will enclose.At the same time, it is important to check out the type of ground that you are dealing with is it soil orturf? Is the soil rocky? Basically, you need to assess how difficult it will be to anchor the fence in the soil.If you have any questions, it is a good idea to check with local fencing supplies Brisbane for advice.
