Fence Bible, The
Good neighbors make good fences — and good fences require good planning, materials, and construction. In this complete one-volume reference, you will find all the information you need to select and construct the right fence for any part of your property. Whether you're considering a wooden picket or a solid brick wall, a decorative rustic wattle or a secure wrought-iron fence, home improvement expert Jeff Beneke lays out the pros and cons of each fencing type, and explains what your investment will be in terms of money, time, materials, and ongoing maintenance
Do you want a barrier fence that says “go away,” or a welcoming gateway? Is your goal to create greater privacy around your property, or add a decorative landscaping feature? To ensure that you select a fence that meets your purposes and injects life and beauty into the landscape, rather than destroying it, Beneke offers dozens of visual examples and practical design guidance. His reassuring, conversational tone makes the process enjoyable. And the detailed step-by-step instructions give you the knowledge and confidence to build fences that will add the most to your property.
Whether you have a small urban courtyard, a generous suburban backyard, or a grand country spread, you'll learn how to stake out your own distinctive boundaries and create a fence that defines and complements your landscape.
