Choosing the Right Fence for Your Backyard

Fencing has all kinds of uses. Whether you need to keep pets in, block strange creatures out, secure a pool or mask a street view, there is a fence for you. Fence Consultants of West Michigan recommends thinking about what it is you want your fence to accomplish; that will lead you to the best choice for your needs.

Privacy. If your main concern is blocking the view of your yard from outsiders, a wood fence may be just what you’re looking for. Available in treated lumber or western red cedar, wood fence panels are available as a privacy fence in a solid or shadowbox style, as a picket fence, as a split rail fence and more. Fence Consultants can customize a wood fence to your specific needs; it can even include a wood fence gate.

Security. If security is at the top of your priority list, consider a gate with access control. Residential and commercial property access gates make a design statement with a grand entrance, while also allowing you to control access for privacy, safety and of course, security. Gates can prevent and control the entry or exit of individuals with latches and locks; they can also be self-closing or self-latching, automatically locking as individuals exit the premises.

Pool safety. A pool fence is of utmost importance, especially if you have little ones traversing around the backyard. Protect-A-Child fencing features a transparent mesh-type fence barrier with solid core composite fiberglass poles that help protect children as well as pets from your swimming pool. Fence Consultants is proud to be the only authorized Protect-A-Child dealer in West Michigan.
