Pick Your Purpose

Western Fence Co specializes in both residential and commercial fencing installations. As a result, it is important to take a close look at the exact purpose of the fence that is going to be installed. Is this a business looking to secure its property or simply a homeowner looking to upgrade the aesthetics of their yard? Some homeowners might install fences to keep their pets safe while enjoying the outdoors. With so many different motives for installing a fence, how do you select which height is right for you?

Let’s outline a few general guidelines for selecting your fence’s height.

  • Protection and Privacy – If you are installing a fence around your yard for the purposes of privacy and protection, you will want to opt for something that is in the six-foot range. Taller privacy fences are great at keeping wandering eyes as well as small creatures from wandering into your yard.
  • Animals & Children – Whether you have a small dog or a young child, keeping your loved ones safely inside of your yard is important. Boundary fences for children and animals should be tall enough to keep both within the bounds of your property, settling comfortably between four and six-feet tall.
  • Swimming Pools – Safety fences are often required by law or local regulation when a pool is present. Consult your local regulations to make sure that you get the right fence to protect your pool as well as your guests from any potential incidents.
  • Garden Fencing – Install a small three-to-four-foot tall garden fence to add a sense of elegance while also protecting your plants from larger animals. A solid fence works well at dissuading smaller animals from entering the garden area.
