Want to replace front fence, what type of fence? Can't decide! Any one have some ideas, have you completed such a project? I am stuck! would like something that looks good but won't cost heaps! My house is getting restumped shortly, so savings will mostly go there & have to start saving again. Knowing what kind of fence will be helpful in reaching that goal.
Where does one start? It really all depends on what style of house you have, and most importantly, what style you like. Do you want it to complement or hide the house? Do you want to cut down noise? Do you intend growing vines/plants on it. There are just so many styles and materials that one could go nuts just trying to decide what type of fence you want. Timber slats (horizontal, vertical and angular), brick (face and rendered), metal (colourbond, plate, laser cut etc). Finishes are also endless. Painted, natural, preserved rust and the list goes on and on. Suggest posting a picture of your house frontage so we can get a better idea.
Good luck with choosing.
I will take 1/2 the blame for the brickwork but the gates with it is all mine.
Gates could do with a paint...
Thanks Daryl, My house is weather board 50"s, can't see much of it apart from drive side, "my jungle" is me, I am not a "little maids all in a row" person. Will see if I can get a photo, haven't tried sending photos as yet! Like your comments, and I am going "nuts" I think!
Ok, 50's style weatherboard and jungle. I would also go timber to complement the house. Unfortunately, my style won't necessarily mean you will like it. We all have our own styles and likes/preferences. Could I suggest you google 'timber fences' and have a look at the images. This may give you some ideas on what you would like. Again, there is so many styles to choose from.
