Fencing in Denver, Colorado
How Fences can add Personal Space and Curb Appeal
Secure, Define, and Accent your Property by Hiring a Professional
First things first, a home without a fence is not unusual, but it certainly does appear plain next to one that has beautiful picket fences or cedar wood planks. There’s just something serene and peaceful about having a white picket fence, which is why it’s the dream of renters and homeowners in the city to find a property with one in the suburbs or out in the country. You might want a fence for privacy, or you might want one for corralling your dogs and/or plants. A fence can also add security to your home, just by its presence alone, as a deterrent which clearly marks the boundary of your property.
Not only that, but there’s no denying the immediate value a quality-made fence can add to a home. It’s probably the simplest way you can make your home stand out and look good, and it’s far cheaper than having more complex landscaping features installed. That’s why installing fences is one of the most common jobs we take on!
To match all of the reasons that you might want one for, there are a wide range of front yard and lawn fence choices to consider. Colorado Custom Design Landscapes has a variety of fence types available, which we’re happy to show you some of. See below for some of the most common fences Denver have installed!
Wood Panel Fences Denver
There’s no denying that wood has a classic look. It’s by far the most common choice for homeowners in the area, and for good reason. You can stain, paint or lacquer your fence however you like, and it’ll always look good.
But just like wooden patios or wooden floors, wood panel fences need continuous maintenance. You will almost certainly need to paint or stain them every few years, since the paint will begin to go dull, and the stain will begin to fade. Depending on the size of your property and the amount of fencing you need, this can be an all-day job!
Of course, wood fencing of all types enhances protection and security, both because of its physical presence and because fencing is known to deter burglars just by being there. It’s also an excellent way of defining the limits of your yard for both youngsters and pets, who can easily get confused when they’re playing. So now that we’ve sold you on the idea of how great wood panel fences are, here are a few common kinds of wooden fences Denver residents have installed:
Wooden picket fence
Wood picket is the ultimate wooden fence. It’s the classic suburban look, especially when you paint it white! If you’ve been living under a rock for fifty years, and you’re not sure what one looks like, take a look at the picture to the left. They basically consist of two long horizontal strips of wood, with pickets set up regularly along them. They’ve been common for decades because they’re so easy to construct and put up.
Like other kinds of wooden fence, they work great for both security and defining the boundary of your property. They’re normally quite tall, at around four feet for most homes. And naturally, Colorado Custom Design Landscapes are happy to offer wood picket fencing as an affordable fencing option! Picket fences can be styled many different ways and have various pointed tops and carvings to make it appear even more elegant than standard picket fences. Of course, they can also be painted or stained in whatever color you like.
Split rail fencing
Split-rail fencing is another classic type of fencing that adds a rural look to a landscape. Utilize this sort of fence to characterize particular ranges in your yard or give an effortlessly strong division along property lines. These fences can be tall to deter climbing or escaping, but are most commonly a little shorter, at around three feet to four feet in height.
Split rail fencing is even older than picket fencing! In fact, the picture to the left is of some split rail fencing from Gettysburg. Now, anything we install is going to look far more professional than that- see the picture at the top of this page for an example- but that just goes to show how popular split rail fencing has been, for some time. But when done right, split rail fencing looks great.
Strong board fences and shadowbox boards
The sheets on a strong board fence merge into each other. One side of the board demonstrates the characteristics of the pickets while the opposite side demonstrates the rails. A strong board fence is useful for hiding ugly landmarks or concealing a roadway from view, as well as helping you keep your privacy in your yard. Shadowbox boards utilize substituting sheets on each side of the fence rail to give the fence a similar look on both sides, permit air flow, and give new perspectives to your yard. These are both great options for both security and privacy, especially since you can see right through picket or split rail fences.
Contingent upon the part of the country and style, wood fencing is available in cedar, pine, redwood, or spruce. Cedar and redwood are impervious to rot and bugs. Colorado Custom Design Landscapes specializes in cedar wood fencing, giving that luxury finish to any home owner’s property.
Cedar is readily available, easy to install, long-lasting, and stains really well. This keeps our costs down, which is a saving that we’re happy to pass on to you. It also means that you won’t have to continually mend or maintain your fence, which can be a hassle, especially in winter and fall. Cedar is a great wood for both small fences and large privacy fences, which is why we use it as standard.
Garden and Wire Fences Denver
Metal fences are simple, underrated additions to yards and gardens alike. It’s wonderful what a little wire mesh fence can do to deter pets and rodents from entering gardens or designated areas on your property. You can get wire fence installed to protect the water features in your yard, so that you don’t have to worry about your pet drinking from it and potentially getting sick.
Chicken wire is also another practical solution for small pet owners, if you wish to take your pets outside, but don’t want them to wander too far off on their own—this is excellent for pet rabbits or young dogs and cats. Wire fencing can be installed by a landscaper so that it is secure; it can even be incorporated so that it blends in with natural surroundings.
