Vinyl Fencing

We have nearly 5 weeks until spring. If you are a gardener, it’s time to have a new garden fence installed. In fact, a garden fence installation that helps keep your garden pest-free. In no shape or form does any gardener want to see his/her garden destroyed by creatures that enjoy munching away on beloved flowers, vegetables and fruits.

One of the most effective ways you can keep your garden pest free is to have a well-designed garden fence installed.

What type of garden fence is best for my garden?

The answer to this question will all depend on the size of your garden and preference in fence material. If your garden is frequently visit by rabbits, you may want a garden fence that’s at least 2-feet high, but for bigger creatures such as deer, raccoons or skunks you will need a formidable barrier fence to protect your garden.

To protect your garden from these types of creatures, we highly recommend a picket fence or wood fence as your garden fence type. We recommend picket fencing or wood fencing to help you enhance the attractiveness of your garden while providing your garden adequate shade. However, a wood fence will require regular fence maintenance but you can reduce your wood fence maintenance by having a rot resistant wood fence installed for your garden. If you do not want to perform regular fence maintenance, go for vinyl fencing or some type of wire fencing.

No matter your fence type preference, choosing the best garden fence for your lifestyle is your best option. You can have a wire fence installed to directly protect your garden and a second layer fence, such as a picket fence, to add charm to your garden.

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Chain link Fencing

Do you love to garden and don’t want to stop during the winter? You don’t have to. You can have a new garden fence installed that will help your garden thrive during the winter. We are here to tell you what garden fences work best for winter gardens and how you can protect your garden fence in the winter.

About Fence Gardening

As a gardener, your main goal is to beautify and make your home property more attractive. You can make your garden look absolutely stunning during the holiday season by utilizing a garden fence.

What is so great about the garden fence?

Having a garden fence can help you soften the look of your home and help you hide any blemishes. A garden is also good for gardeners that have a limited amount of space to work with but want to make their gardens as beautiful as possible.

What types of garden fences are available?

  • Wood fencing is the most popular garden fence because it’s inexpensive, easy to maintenance and gives off an elegant appearance.
  • Chain link fencing is a really great garden fence selection because it’s designed to help gardeners spread out their winter flowers and plants. It’s a very attractive fence style and also a low maintenance fence.
  • Vinyl fencing is a prefect selection for gardeners looking for a fence that’s long lasting and durable. Vinyl fencing is a low maintenance fence and 100% pet friendly.
  • Aluminum fence is perfect for any gardener on a tight budget. Aluminum fencing allows gardeners to line their winter plants and flowers along the fence. Gardeners also have the option to use aluminum fencing for climbing plants.

As for protecting a garden fence, the only fence that really needs regular protection from the winter weather is a wood fence. Moisture accumulation, warping, and shifting are all issues you can experience with a wood fence.

To protect your wood fence from moisture accumulation, have your fence stained. This will prevent mold growth, mildew and wood rot. The best stain to use on a wood fence is an oil based stain. You cannot forget to regularly clean your wood fence during the winter as well. Yes, that means cleaning up leaves, shoveling snow and sweeping up debris.

Your next priority is to protect your wood fence from warping, which is caused by sudden temperature rise and fall.  Anytime a wood fence experiences extreme temperature changes, the wood can expand and contract.

Last but not least, you can protect your wood fence from shifting soil by requesting your fence posts are installed at least 3 feet under the ground to surpass the frost line. Remember thawing that shift the soil always follows snow days.

To have the right garden fence installed for your home property, schedule an appointment with Hercules Fence.

How you can make your Yard fence part of your backyard design.

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Want to create the backyard of your dreams? Then look no further; we have the information and resources to assist you in your home and garden projects!

One great backyard project is choosing the perfect yard fence! The basic function of a yard fence is to mark a property, provide security and privacy. But the use of a yard fence does not have to stop at the basic purpose. Your yard fence can be beautiful and enhance the environment of your backyard design!

There are a range of ways to reach this goal and more.

For one, you can build a garden fence to keep your pets, rabbits, and deer out of your flowerbed. Building a garden fence is not only easy but it is inexpensive.

Some inexpensive types of garden fencing are post and rail or wire and mesh. These types of fencing are easy to erect. But what matters most in design are material and style.

Here are three great styles and material you can try in your backyard:

  1. Wood fences. This fence is a traditional yard fence that remains tremendously popular with homeowners. It is naturally beautiful because it is real wood. Wood styles of cedar, redwood or pine are great style choices to use.
  2. Vinyl fencing. This is an excellent fencing choice because: it can closely resemble wood. It is ultra-easy to care. It is long lasting and attractive. Many vinyl fencing require no treatment.
  3. Chain Link Fencing. It is a great traditional gray metal because it is inexpensive, sturdy and attractive.

Yard fences should be practical and ornamental. It does not matter if it is an old-fashioned picket fence, wrought iron spear or has a contemporary geometric design. A yard fence adds beauty while offering protection. The yard fence transforms over time but it never goes out of style. Read  this article from MyBackyardProjects.com for more information on Yard fence design.

How to Create Sustainable and Unique Garden Designs

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Do you find pleasure in gardening? Do you want a beautiful, creative, and sustainable garden?  If yes, then you will be glad to hear that you can make a garden design that can remain from June to October that allows yours plants to follow a natural seasonal cycle!

The best garden designs are ones that are environmentally sub-conscious while remaining unique in style and the statement it makes to the world!

The website Garden Design Unlimited gives very creative suggestions on how to make your garden come alive. One suggestion is to create a winding pathway to your garden.

A winding pathway gives visitors to your garden a new twist away from the traditional vertical walk way. Around the winding pathway, the site suggests you put a few permanent shapes, such as wooden blocks or rocks to replicate a fun animal, such as a caterpillar winding around the blocks, while the rocks form the caterpillar-like depiction! This design is creative and very cute.

With this design completed, you can surround your homemade caterpillar with your favorite types of flowers! Garden Design Unlimited suggests putting both seasonal and all year round plants to enhance the curiosity of visitors to your garden.

Some great ideas from the site: Have the centerpiece of your garden be nectar. Use wildflowers to attract domestic butterflies (a big hit with children). Have a sunflower or two in your garden.

For more information on how to get creative and make your garden stand out in a fabulous way, read this article called Future Gardens by Garden Design Unlimited.

To protect your beautiful creation, install a garden fence! Ornamental Aluminum is an example of a wonderful fence selection! Ornamental Aluminum has a reputation for complementing beautiful landscapes in style without restricting a picturesque view!
