Fences around the garden and the property serve many functions. Sometimes their main job is to keep unwanted things out. Inquisitive neighbors, for example, unwanted visitors, including four-legged ones, unsightly surroundings, noise, and noise or strong winds. They often also serve to protect things in the garden—pets, children, warmth, and smells, for example.
The dominant nature of a fence mostly depends on which side of the privacy screen you are on. Anyone standing outside quickly feels excluded and not welcome. Whoever is behind it usually has the feeling of being protected and cozy. A low picket fence represents tradition and care. A high privacy fence, on the other hand, exudes relaxation and sleek charm.
Which Fence Is the Right One?
When choosing a suitable fence, however, there is more to consider than creating the desired flair. Local requirements and regulations can limit the height and placement of a fence. The building style, size, and paint of your own house and property also influence the style and color. And when in doubt, your own budget will tip the scales when it comes to the material the fence is made of.
It’s also important to remember that fences can potentially create as many problems as they solve. Most of them, for example, need intensive maintenance and have to be touched up and repaired every now and then. Wooden fences, in particular, need to be cleaned of mosses and vegetation and a fresh paint job every few years if they do not want to be weathered. In the latter case, it must, of course, be replaced earlier.
Other materials, such as plaster of Paris, also need a mandatory coat of paint every year to retain their color and structure. Even a stone privacy screen has to be stacked every now and then, and bushes and trees require regular pruning. Composite materials such as WPC are elementary to care for, weather-resistant, and durable. It owes its properties to the fact that WPC is an ideal alternative for a privacy fence.
WPC (Wood-Plastic-Composite) can be designed and shaped very freely. Individual fence models are also possible. Also, the composite material is resistant to moisture and wetness. At the same time, it does not expand as much in sunlight and warm temperatures as some other materials. This reduces maintenance to a minimum. And if you spend less time looking after your fence, you have more time to enjoy your garden.
