DIY Fence Installation: How to Put Up Your Own Fence

There are several practical and aesthetic purposes for installing a fence on your residential property, such as creating a boundary for pets and kids, visibly separating your property from your neighbor’s, or enhancing the appearance of your yard.

Once you have decided to add a fence to your property in the Denver or Colorado Springs area, though, you must determine whether to undertake the project yourself or have a professional fence company handle the installation.

Friendly Fences for Colorado’s Wildlife

Whether as HOAs or ranchers and farmers, most of us pick out fences based on how their appearance and functionality suit our own needs. In residential areas, we consider which fence will add the most curb appeal, require the least amount of maintenance, add the most visual and acoustic privacy, and give our children and pets a safe place to play. In rural areas where we keep our own livestock, we think about which fences will be cost effective yet strong to contain our animals, exclude wildlife, prevent trespassing, protect gardens and crops, and mark property boundaries.
