metal fence


My husband has now put up two fences with the help of his father. One was a traditional wood fence the other was more of a decorative white vinyl fencing. They took forever to do but turned out great in the end. I’m so impatient!

My style is somewhere between Italian rustic to vintage industrial farmhouse. I’ve never leaned much toward the super modern style but it has a lot more options when it comes to fences.

Advanced technology has contributed to innovating building materials that take home renovation to a whole new level. If you have a contemporary house and landscape, take a look at some great new fencing products. These modern fence designs have a stunning modern design appeal.


Strong woods like redwood, teak and cedar that weather naturally make beautiful fences that hold up well in most climates. Planks can be installed vertically or horizontally and combined with supports in brick, stone or concrete for a unique look. If you want to maintain the the warm color of the natural wood, treat it with a protective sealant to prevent weathering.


Opaque tempered glass panels combined with wood, steel or concrete vertical supports create a stunning fence design with unique modern appeal. The simple, sophisticated look compliments the design simplicity of structures and materials used in modern architecture. Opaque tempered glass panels provide privacy while permitting light to come through.


Metal fences can be constructed with vertical or horizontal sheets, slats, poles and grid systems. The strength of the metal components allows the entire fence, including the vertical supports, to be completely built from metals like iron, nickel and copper without adding other building materials. To prevent natural oxidation, always use a protective sealant.


Weathering steel, also called Cor-Ten steel, creates a beautiful fence for any contemporary or vintage-modern home and landscape. It comes pre-fabricated with an oxidized finish that looks like a copper patina, but weathering steel is only available in orange and brown finishes. It’s strong, yet thin enough to allow for beautiful curved fence designs.

Building a fence can be exciting. Heck, I find planning most things fun. Find answers now on fence design and construction for your home here. And check out Pinterest for ideas. You never know what you may come across.

  1. Gosh, you must have been reading my mind. Our fence is old and will soon need replacing. The good news is there are many new options available these days. 🙂

  2. Interesting if I was not so tired I would write more
