Aluminum Fence Privacy Works Like This
Being in the fencing business, it’s easy to see how people might think that a solid structure aluminum fence offers no privacy. The pickets are a good distance apart and, whether you use accessories such as butterflies or rings or not, it doesn’t exactly keep people from looking in. Some people like this about aluminum fence because they truly want to show off their yard or they don’t want to ruin the view (especially if their landscaping is geared to the natural land around your property). The nice part about a solid structure aluminum fence is that you always have the option for privacy, even long after you’ve bought and installed the fence.
Fencing panels are relatively easy to find and easy to install. Most of them come with pre-punched holes so that installation is straightforward and less time consuming. You can use these panels or “slats” in a chain link fence or seek out more solid panels for your solid structure fence. If you’re just ordering that fence, talk to you manufacturer/dealer and see if he’ll throw in panels with the order (or even custom make them). Buying fence panels separately is an option later on, but depending on the fence manufacturer you may need to make some modifications.
The absolute best way to make your yard more private while still incorporating an elegant metal style is to grow nice lush bushes, trees, and flowers around your perimeter. Doing it this way gives you a fresh new landscape to plan, raises property values, and gives you a great project for the summer. Also, by avoiding fencing panels and simply using a natural kind of barrier you make your property a beautiful addition to your community.
