The saying good fences make good neighbors rings true. Fences help establish boundaries, ensure responsibility, and reduce disputes and conflicts. Additionally, fences also provide security, privacy, and protection. This is true in residential, agricultural, and rural areas. Laws regarding setting up fences are different for every state and type of land area, but generally they define divisions, regulations and responsibilities when it comes to boundaries.
Fences are also used for landscaping and decorative purposes, protecting industrial property, preventing snow, securing pools, guarding fixed machineries and high-voltage equipment and securing grazing livestock. Fences are also used in sports, airfields, and prisons. Fences can be picket, rail, cross-buck, lattice, gothic, flat top, shadow box, dog-ear or basket weave.
The most common fences are made of wood such as cedar, oak, chestnut, spruce, pine and wattle. Other fences are made of metal, chain, steel, aluminum, and wrought iron. Depending on their needs, some people prefer to use simple bamboo fences or slates while others are inclined to use barbed wire fences or electric fences.
