You will want your new fence to be functional, but it should also enhance the look of your home. Here are some ways to help you achieve this:
The style of your home
First, look at the architectural style of your home. Is it Contemporary, Georgian, Federation, Brick Federation, Old Colonial, Tuscan or another style altogether? The design of your fence should complement the style of your home.
Making an impression versus blending in
Do you want the fence to stand out and become a feature in itself, or blend in? Some fences are designed not to be seen, while others are used to form a backdrop to other features. Specific colours and styles will help you achieve the look you are after.
If you are after a pool fence that blends into the garden and allows the pool itself to be the feature, the ARC Fences Sturt, Bass or Willow style fence will give you that look.
Alternatively, if you want a fence to match the style and colour of your home and be a feature of your front garden, then the ARC Fences Blaxland or Bourke style in black may be the answer.
Depending on the landscaping of your property, your fence may be level, stepped or sloped.
If your fence plan includes a gate, you will have to decide where the gate will go and how it will be designed. Choosing the location is easy - convenience is the primary consideration here. But as far as design goes, the gate can either match the fence in appearance or it can be a contrasting size, design and material. Whatever you decide, the size of the gate will determine post spacing and location.
Be a good neighbour
Don't forget to take into account the height, materials, post settings and any gate locations in your new fence. A neighbourly way to build a fence is to make sure that it's equally attractive from both sides.
ARC Fences options for fencing materials:
- Steel, Aluminium, Wire, Metal Pickets
