• How to Keep Your Dog Safe with a Dog-Proof Fence

    A new fence installation may serve one of many purposes: You may want to relax in your yard behind the security of a privacy fence, or you may want a practical way to keep your kids and pets close to home. Read on if you would like to find out how you can keep your dog safe with a dog-proof fence.

    Choose the Right Materials

    A dog-proof fence can offer you a little extra peace of mind as long as it is properly designed and maintained. Part of the design process includes determining what kind of materials will protect your dog and keep it safe. Chain link fences might injure your dog if it attempts to chew through it, and some types of wood fences may not be able to stand up to your dog’s clawing and chewing. Consider a sturdy wood or a vinyl fence for your dog.

    Determine the Proper Fence Height

    Once you have decided on a fence material, you will then have to determine the proper height. You can do this by assessing how high your dog can jump and setting your fence height accordingly. Keep in mind that some small dogs can jump even higher than other large dogs. It is wise to add a couple of extra inches to the height of your fence as a safety net, and it helps to remove anything that could help your dog jump over the fence.

    Consider Other Animals

    The final component to your dog-proof fence design is the consideration of other animals. Although the slats of your wood fence may be close enough together to keep your dog in the yard, they may not be close enough to keep cats, squirrels, and other animals out. Your slats should be tall and close together for this reason.

  • Creating a Fence for Your Garden

    Between vinyl, wooden, and aluminum fences in Chicagoland, you have plenty of options to choose from when designing a fence for your garden. When narrowing down your options, it helps to think about several different elements, including the material the fence is made of and the style you would like to portray. Read on for help creating a fence for your garden.


    The first step in creating a new fence for your garden is often deciding the style you would like to display. A short fence with spaced pickets will promote the visibility of your garden and allow passersby to enjoy the view, while a taller fence with closer slats can instead provide a nice backdrop for you to enjoy your garden from your side of the fence. Once you have decided what you want your fence to look like, you can determine what materials it should be made of.


    The type of materials you choose for your fence installation will likely impact the level of maintenance you will have to afford it. Different materials come with their own pros and cons , so do some research before making a decision. Remember that the beauty of a wooden fence comes with the drawback of maintenance over the long term, and the aesthetic value of a stone fence comes at a high price. Vinyl fences are often praised for their combination of visual appeal and ease of maintenance.


    Whenever you construct something on your property, it is a good idea to consult your neighbors. Depending on how high your fence is, it may impact their yards as well as your own; finding out that your neighbor is constructing a fence in the middle of the process does not typically strengthen neighborly bonds.
