Hercules Fence Donates Dog Run Fence to Humane Society

Monday, June 11th, 2012

Happy Dog Enjoys New Dog Run Fence at Montgomery County Humane Society.

It is a pleasure for Hercules Fence to do its part in making the community a better place to live and work. Recently, Hercules Fence donated a beautiful dog run fence to the Montgomery County Humane Society (MCHS).

Hercules Fence received a message from Shari Kalina, a volunteer with the Montgomery County Humane Society in Rockville, Maryland about the shelter being very much in need of a local fencing company that could provide and install approximately 100 feet of chain link fencing on their shelter grounds so the dogs could have a place to exercise off-leash.

Prior to the completion of the fencing project, the dogs lacked space to run around. The dogs need living space beyond their cages and a dog run provides the dogs a space to have fun and exercise while increasing their chances of getting adopted.

Bruce and many other volunteers have said the dog run fence has made a tremendous difference lifestyle improvement for the shelter dogs. The Montgomery County Humane Society is thankful Hercules Fence has made this project into a reality. The Humane Society has created a plaque to thank Hercules Fence for this very important contribution to the well being of their shelter dogs. The plaque is mounted on the pen.

3 Ways To Make The Best Choice For Your Backyard Fence

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Are you in need of a backyard fence? If yes, you will want to make the best choice when getting a fence installed. It is not something you want to rush. Have a game plan and put some thought in choosing your backyard fence. Read now to learn what actions you should take to make the best choice for your backyard fence.

When purchasing and installing a backyard fence, there are three important things you need to think about: Function. Style.  Maintenance.

With function, you want your backyard fence to cover all your necessities as a homeowner of attractiveness, privacy and safety. A fence can make your garden or your backyard as a whole look better. A fence can also enhance your privacy and the safety of your family – pets included.

If your fence is installed and maintained properly, it is capable of increasing your curb appeal and property value.

The next thing you should take in account is the fence style. There are so many fence styles you can choose but you should choose one that fits your needs, your budget and complements the look of your home.

If your style needs to take in account privacy, a tall wooden fence works best for residential property.

If you are looking to enhance your safety at an affordable price, you may want to install a chain link fence.

If the sole purpose of your fence is to add charm and elegance to your home property, try an iron fence or picket fence.

No matter your needs and wants, there is always a fence out there for you – even if you have to install a customized fence.

Last but not least, you need to consider how much time you are willing to invest in maintaining the function and beauty of your fence.

If you install a wood fence, you will take more maintenance than other fencing. You will need to paint and stain it regularly. You will need to occasionally replace boards. If you are looking for a low maintenance fence, try installing vinyl fencing.

With this information you are sure to pick the best fence for your backyard. Hercules Fence is here to help.

Halloween Spectacular: Backyard Party for Kids

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Want to do something fun in your backyard this Halloween? If yes, throw a Halloween party in your backyard for the kids! The cool fall weather makes Halloween a perfect holiday to have a backyard party! Below are some great ideas to make your Halloween backyard party a blast!

Invitations. Go to your local party store or discount department store to buy your Halloween invitations or custom-make yours! Be sure to let all attendees know that this party will be outdoors so they wear weather appropriate attire and Halloween costumes.

– Decorations. Put faux gravestones made out of Styrofoam in your backyard! Paint them gray or silver! Hang balloons and crepe paper on the backyard fence. Hang ghost from trees. Place candles in clear glasses filled with sand to put on the party table.

– Activities. Have an apple-bobbing contest. Have a holiday treasure hunt by decorating a cardboard box to look like a treasure chest. Fill the box up with dollar store gifts and candy. Throw a Halloween costume parade as well!

Food and Drink. Hamburgers and hot dogs are always great for the kids at a party (can be meat or a vegetarian substitute). Use orange sherbet for a sweet dessert. Have snacks such as chips and dried fruit available as well. And be sure to keep water bottles, soda and juice boxes in a tub to keep your guest hydrated while they have fun!
