    My favorite part of the article is where you mentioned that a fence is cheaper than installing a gate. I only need a good fencing material that can serve as protection from my neighbor’s dog that kept on peeing on my plants, so I guess it will be easy enough. I’ll try to look for local contractors around Aspen, CO, and see if they have a good solution to my problem.

    I like that you pointed out that the fences can also be beautiful so that they can be soothing for the eyes and mind. What we have in mind is the fences for the farm we just bought. We bought it to have a place to relax during summer vacation, so it would be a nice addition to have fences installed around the place not just for protection. Thanks for sharing this!

    It’s interesting to know that the gates are also considered to be part of the decoration of the house. Personally, I need them for security since there are been an incident of burglary last week. However, I like the idea of making it look nice to complement our property, so I will keep in mind both the design and the security when we get them installed.
