Fencing isn’t a necessity for homeowners, but it does add a sense of completion and security to a property.

Moreover, with certain fences reportedly having an ROI of 70%, homeowners can boost their property value by installing one.

Families looking to install a fence should compare prices to choose the one that best meets their needs and their home’s style.

Here are some options to start the search.

Wooden fence under construction
Wood fencing is a traditional option, but it requires plenty of maintenance.

1. Wood

Wood fencing, ranging from $10 to $30 per square foot, is easy on the wallet and the eyes.

This type of fencing, which has been around for centuries, remains popular for its natural look.

Just remember: wood fences need plenty of maintenance, particularly regular staining to keep them looking and performing their best.

2. Hedges

Using shrubbery to keep out unwanted attention is one way to transform a house into a beautiful and lavish home with its own built-in landscape as fencing.

To find the best option for your home, research plants that are native to the area to make sure they will thrive around your property’s perimeter.

Next, be patient! After all, you have to plant the hedge, prune it and maintain it well for optimal results.  

Alternatively, hedges can be transplanted and installed in one day for an instant all-natural fence.


  1. I watched your video on how to clean the valley of a roof. That Valley on your video is nothing like the valley on my roof. My roof has tile and I have leaves that want to blow up underneath my tile. Could you send me something explaining how I could go about cleaning from underneath the tiles easily and then preventing leaves from blowing up under there. Thank you.
