    Fence Design Tips for Horse Owners

    Last updated 5 days ago

    To ensure the safety of your horses, it’s best to have a visible fence that inhibits them from going through or over, without being prone to causing them injury. Remember too that the fencing you choose is also important to the aesthetics and even the value of your property. Read on for a full list of the most important considerations when considering horse fencing in Fort Worth.

    Wood Fencing
    The standard horse fence material is still wood, particularly logs and planks. While wood is often associated with high upkeep, there are a number of modern wood options that hold up well and make your property look beautiful. Find a fencing company in the Fort Worth area who can drive them into the ground so that you don’t have to deal with heaving when the ground freezes.

    Woven Wire Fencing
    Another common horse fence is made from thick, braided wire. Look for woven wire with small openings, so that your horses cannot fit their heads or legs through the fence. And be sure that the wire is wrapped or woven, as welded wire fencing can break apart if a horse runs into it.

    Vinyl Fencing
    If you like the look of wood but don’t want to deal with the maintenance, vinyl fencing is perfect for your property. Not all vinyl fencing is safe for horses, though. If a horse puts its weight on a poorly made vinyl fence, the rails can pop out of the posts, and the fence may even shatter altogether. A cable-reinforced vinyl fence made of flat, flexible vinyl is the best option.

    Decorating Your Fence with Bamboo

    Last updated 14 days ago

    Did you know that you can use bamboo to decorate your fencing? There are two different types of bamboo that you can use: clumping bamboo and running bamboo. As per its name, clumping bamboo grows in clumps, and doesn’t much larger than 10 feet tall. Running bamboo is so named because it grows at an alarming rate. If you don’t apply the proper barriers, it will likely grow way out of your property lines. Watch the video clip for tips on planting bamboo near your fence.

    Design Inspiration for Your Front Yard Fence

    Last updated 20 days ago

    From wood fences to wrought iron fences, Buzz Custom Fence has a range of materials to choose from for your front yard fence. We have fences that add privacy, enhance the value of your home, and create an attractive focal point in your yard. To gather inspiration for your front yard fence, read this article about the different types of fences we offer. 

    Picket Fences
    The traditional picket design is the most popular fence for homes in the Fort Worth area. These fences rarely exceed three feet in height, and almost always comply with local codes. Available in wood or vinyl, picket fences are usually quite decorative, but still maintain a casual appearance. If you have a traditional-style home, a short picket fence will look great around your front yard.

    Privacy Fences
    A front yard privacy fence is the dream of many homeowners in the Fort Worth area, but you’ll have to make sure they comply with neighborhood codes. Privacy fencing for the front yard is a great option for homeowners who wish to use the yard for outdoor living, but don’t have enough space in the back. Place the fence a few feet back from the sidewalk and add plants to soften the appearance of the fence and boost your home’s curb appeal.

    Wrought Iron Fences
    Another popular fencing option in the Fort Worth area, wrought iron is both classic and formal. Typical iron fencing is transparent, so it won’t make your yard seem uninviting. Black aluminum fencing is virtually indistinguishable from wrought iron, but much easier to maintain.

    Driveway Gates
    Front yard fencing usually requires the installation of a driveway gate. In addition to providing security, driveway gates can enhance the design of your home. Don’t be afraid to combine materials, such as wood and iron, to achieve your desired style.

    If you want design inspiration for your front yard fence, consult the custom fence experts at Buzz Custom Fence of Fort Worth. Visit our website to see the wide variety of fencing options we offer, and call us at (817) 918-4118 for more information.

    Tips for Choosing Deck Rails

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Deck rails may seem like a trivial part of fencing, but they actually deserve careful deliberation. Deck rails can help to determine your level of privacy, your ability to see things from your deck, and whether you adhere to local building codes.

    The style and height of your deck rails directly impact your visibility to others and your ability to see your surroundings. If you plan on sitting down and enjoying the view from your deck, you should consider rails that are three to three and a half feet off of the ground; this way the rails will not be in your way and you can comfortably see over them. You can also prevent your railings from impeding your view by installing transparent tempered glass railings.

    Want more tips for choosing deck rails? Call Buzz Custom Fence at (817) 918-4118 or visit our website. We are proud to serve the Fort Worth area with commercial, residential, and industrial fencing. If you live in the area, stop by today to find out more about what we can do for you. 

    Factors to Consider When Creating a Dog Proof Fence

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Fences may improve the look of your home, but they serve additional purposes as well, like containing pets to your yard. When it comes to deciding what type of fence is appropriate for your dog, there are a few components to assess. Here are some of the factors to consider when creating a dog proof fence.

    Size of Your Dog
    When creating a dog proof fence, make sure that it does an adequate job of containing your dog. If you have a small dog, you will need a fence that is low enough to the ground that the dog will not be able to squeeze underneath and escape. If you have a larger breed dog, you must create a fence that cannot be jumped or climbed over. If you are unsure about how high your dog can jump, it is best to make the fence too tall rather than too short.

    Fence Materials
    Certain styles of fencing are more appropriate for dogs than others. Styles like chain link or barbed wire can be hazardous to dogs, and they can provide bad accidental injuries. Other styles of fencing, like wood, can be chewed away. Fences made of thicker wood or vinyl usually do a good job of containing your dog to the appropriate area without wearing down or causing injuries. Iron and brick fences are probably the most durable.

    Fence Style
    Another factor that should be considered is the style of fence that you desire. If your fence has pickets, be sure to place them close together so your dog cannot fit between them. Solid style fences provide a great deal of privacy and can prevent your dog from becoming excited about animals or people on the other side of the fence.
