Step 2: Find the perfect fencing solution

There are a lot of things to consider when choosing the right kind of fence for your need. Do you have kids? Pets? Nosy neighbors? Do you live near a busy road? Does your yard have a pool? First identify your need, then explore your style.

Step 3: Prepare for your delivery

Fence products are large and bulky so you will need to think about where to temporarily store your materials once they arrive until you are ready to install. Make sure to clear some space in your driveway where the carrier can deliver a pallet. The carrier will only make one drop so make sure it is exactly where you want it. We recommend inspecting your materials upon arrival to make sure that you receive everything on your original order.
