What to Consider When Choosing Your Fencing Material Atlanta, GA
Iron Fence

Not all fences are created equal. Besides having a skilled installer, your fence should be made of the appropriate material. Fences come in various heights and can be constructed with wood, vinyl, wrought iron and other fencing material. Here are some factors you’ll need to consider when determining the best fencing material for your specific project:

Purpose of the Fence
Is it primarily for safety? Do you need to keep unwanted visitors away or to contain children or pets from venturing off your property? Others may want a fence to provide an attractive but defined border of their property line or to gain some privacy from their neighborhoods in their backyard. The reason for your fencing plays a strong role in what type of material will be best. For example, a wooden fence offers more privacy and appeal while an aluminum or chain link fence may be all you need to keep your pets from escaping.

Budget and Maintenance
As with any hardscape or landscaping investment, it is important to determine what you are willing to pay for a fence as well as how much time (if any) you are willing to spend maintaining it. Wooden fences may require more staining and upkeep than metal or wrought iron fences. In addition, certain materials may have a higher upfront price tag, but they often last longer and offer a larger return on your investment.

Climate/Weather Conditions
Will your fence be shaded or bake under the hot sun for several hours a day? The climate and weather conditions that your fence will be subjected to will play a significant role in determining the most suitable fencing material. A fence that fades or rusts quickly can be a waste of money.

Style of Your Home
Many homeowners and business owners choose a fencing material that compliments the style of their home. For example, wrought iron fences are often used in traditional and Victorian homes while Pickett fences can be the perfect accent to a country or rustic style home.

Our Client Reviews

Atlanta Landscaper - Top Client Rated 2023 badge
We have been working with Woodburn for about a year. It began with leaf collection during the fall, and now we have them handle our lawn in its entirety - mowing, edging, trimming, and blowing. They also pruned some bushes for us. Each of these services they provided was of excellent quality. They are very responsive to any requests and are both kind and professional. I can not recommend them more highly and am very fortunate to have found them.

I have used Woodburn Landscapes for at least 5 years and have been vary happy with their work. I used to do my own lawn maintenance, and am very picky about edging, mowing, and general appearance of my yard. Max Woodburn stepped in and had the same discerning eye and is very particular about how a lawn / landscape should be maintained. They are very knowledgeable about the type grass I have (Emerald Zoysia) and proper height to mow the lawn. I truly appreciate their consistency, and process, and highly recommend this Woodburn Landscapes!
