Fencing

Why is fencing important- what fencing styles are correct?

Fencing is one of the most important elements in the presentation of your house. The design of your fence should complement the style of your house. This can be achieved by building your fence of materials and colours that relate to the materials and colours used in the house.

Fence design and colours change with different architectural periods and styles. If you are lucky enough to have early photographs of your house, these might provide valuable clues for the original design of the fence that was built for your house.
