how to pick the right garden fence

Quality fencing not only makes your home look good, it also lets you showcase your beautiful garden in style. And, if you’re after a more practical option, you can choose from a range of designs to help transform your backyard into the secluded outdoor paradise of your dreams. 

To help you choose the right garden fence for your home, here are a few important factors to consider.

1. Decide what you want in a garden fence

First, think about what you want out of a new fence. Greater privacy? Noise reduction? Security? Or perhaps an elegant way to show off your garden? As best you can, try to conclude what benefits are most important to you, and base your decision on achieving those goals.

For example, if privacy and noise reduction matters to you, consider the WALLMax® Panel Wall. The Polystyrene core in the centre helps to reduce noise transmission. And the tiny gaps between each post means that your home will be kept largely out of public view.

Of course, if you’re not quite sure what you want out of a new fence, then book an appointment with your local fencing contractor. They will gladly visit you onsite and help you choose the perfect garden fence.

2. Fine-tune the design to suit your personal taste

Based on what you desire in a garden fence, this can help you narrow down which design elements are most relevant to you. 

This doesn’t have to just be a decorative choice, either. For example, the addition of louvres on top of a boundary fence not only looks great, but also lets you adjust the amount of airflow and sunlight that comes through. Furthermore, the Reverse Crimped spears on a security fence makes it harder for intruders and wildlife to access your home.

Of course, if your goal is to impress, then we at Dunn & Farrugia have you covered. You can choose from a range of vertical bars, caps and spears, and horizontal screens, giving your fence a distinct charm that will make your home stand out from the rest.

3. Choose a low-maintenance fence option

These days, most modern fences are easy to maintain. This gives you the freedom to choose a fence that looks good to you and still enjoy your free time on the weekend. No need to waste away the afternoon cleaning!

How is this possible? For starters, many traditional favourites like timber fencing have given way to more low-maintenance alternatives like aluminium, which is what our Picket Fencing and TimberSLAT™ range is made of. Unlike old timber, aluminium does not require repainting or re-staining, and it’s resistant to rust, corrosion, and fungi. As a result, the aluminium will preserve its shape and good looks for many years to come – without you breaking a sweat.

And that’s not all. Our steel security fencing is treated with DuraBOND® protective coating. This zinc-rich thermosetting powder provides excellent corrosion resistance and contains zero ozone-depleting substances. Your steel fence will stand strong and look great doing it in even the toughest climate.

Of course, most fencing does require some care every now and then. To help maximise the life of your investment, your installer will show you just how easy it is to keep your fence in top shape.
