Description
Do you know the difference among a boundary, privacy, and security fence? Or what a Good Neighbor fence is? Or a dry stonewall? You might know about living hedges but what about snow fences? Adding a wall or fence to your property can be a major decision. It requires good design and good thinking to identify the best style , design, and material to meet your needs. Originally, fences and walls were constructed primarily for protection. Today, they are built for privacy, security, as well as protection from noise and headlights.This new book helps you select the wall or fence that suits your property and your fancy! A fence can be a decoration (think of those cute upright white pickets), hide an ugly view (such as trash cans or a/c units), block the sound of passing vehicles, enclose the swimming pool, or create a new outdoor room. Sometimes used as a backdrop for the garden, framing views, creating vistas, and providing perspective, you want a wall or fence to blend into the background; sometimes you want it to make a statement. Explore a wide range of styles and designs, in a variety of materials and quality grades. Hundreds of examples are shown in 316 full color photos, offering a comprehensive reference for homeowners, architects, landscapers, and builders.
