When you get a new fence in Southern MD, have to consider your surrounding neighbors and the type of fence permitted in your neighborhood. Below are some things you should keep in mind before you go forward with the fence installation.

Define Property Lines

Do you know where your property begins and ends?  Your house’s plat maps out your land. If you do not have this document, your county’s records office could provide you one.  Or for a fee a land surveyor can determine your property lines and place stakes along the boundary.

Talk to your neighbor

You may not actually be required to talk to your neighbors about it if its within your property and meets neighborhood regulations.  You might find out that you and your neighbor can collaborate on the project and split the cost if they were already considering a fence.

Face the finished outside side of the fence toward your neighbor

Continually maintain your fence

If your fence is treated wood maintenance will of course be more labor intensive than an aluminum or vinyl fence.

If you follow these guidelines you will find it easier to enjoy having a fence.  By informing your immediate neighbors you may find them eager to help you out.

While driving through Southern MD you have seen all the split rail fences complementing all the properties in St Marys, Charles and Calvert County.  So now you want to knows if this is the right kind of fence for you.  Well, it might be! There are a few things to consider if you’re thinking about buying split rail fence for your property.

Consider Your Pets

If you have pets Massey Fence offers black wire mesh, an economical solution to provide an outdoor boundary for your pets.   Split rail with wire in Southern MD is a good option if your pets are not jumpers or get distracted by anything happening outside of the fenced-in area. For these pets, a privacy fence may be the better option.

What Style of Home Do You Have

A split rail fence complements a ranch, a colonial, or another style that looks good with a more rustic option.  However, if your home is an old Victorian, or another particular architectural style, it is important that a new fence reflect this look as well.  In that case, a traditional wooden picket fence may be your choice, or something more stylish like an aluminum fence.

What Do Your Neighbors Have

If everyone in the neighborhood has a classic picket fence, consider whether it would be a positive or negative for your property to be different.  Consider the styles and materials of the surrounding properties, and think about how that will look with the style you are considering.

Split rail fencing is a classic, natural option for those who want something simple and effective. It’s a great fence for looks, for protecting your pets and property, or for establishing your property line. If you’re thinking about a fence, definitely think about split rail!

Good fences make good neighbors in Southern Maryland. We know fencing may not be the most exciting topic when it comes to landscape design, they are necessary in the backyard. So, we are here to help with backyard fence ideas that will make your home, children, and pets more secure.

Chain Link Fences installed in Southern MD have been around forever. They offer affordability and low maintenance and easily can be customized to fit around any backyard. These fences also provide security, although perhaps not the privacy you want. For an even better look and a longer life, consider upgrading to vinyl-coated chain link.

Solid Wood Fences installed in Southern MD are another popular choice for backyards.  Besides the white picket fence and lattice fence, you also can install a vertical board fence to provide the greatest degree of safety, security, and privacy.  Wooden fences also can be contoured and shaped around your property to provide uniqueness and character.  They provide a rustic and natural element that is sure to compliment any home.

Vinyl Fences installed in Southern MD provide the same safety and security as wood fencing but with a couple of other advantages.  It does not retain moisture, so it does not attract moss, mildew, or insects.  Once installed, vinyl fencing is virtually maintenance-free. The initial cost is higher than wood or chain link, but the durability and reduced maintenance make vinyl a good long-term choice for fencing.  The only maintenance required would be to just wash dirt off occasionally with a mild detergent and rinse with a garden hose.

Ornamental Aluminum Fences installed in Southern MD are a beautiful option for many homeowners.  Aluminum fences are lightweight, durable, and beautiful.  They withstand corrosion, making them ideal for homes with pools. Aluminum is also 100 percent recyclable.
