Fencing is a great way to add security and privacy to your yard. Even the cheapest fence can also make your property more appealing, as well as give you some control over what gets in and out of it. But not all fences are created equal, some will last longer than others, some are more effective at deterring intruders, and some are easier to install than others.
So what do you do if you’re on a budget and still want to install a fence in your yard? Or what if you want to install a fence but don’t know where to start? Thankfully, there are plenty of affordable fence options that can be installed in your yard without breaking the bank. In this post, we’ll go over eight of the cheapest fences to install in your yard!
Woven Wire Fence
For starters, the cheapest fence to install is the woven wire fence. This simple, effective barrier can be used to define property lines, separate different sections of your yard, or keep pets contained while still allowing them plenty of room to move around. It’s also great for keeping deer out of your garden! The only downside with this type of fencing is that it doesn’t provide much privacy unless you can plant taller shrubs alongside it.
In America, wood is the most preferred fencing material, especially when properly treated. In addition to giving homeowners privacy, it improves the curb appearance of your house. Additionally, it costs less than other materials and gives your home a warm, inviting atmosphere. Remember to consider local building codes when building a wooden fence, as well as the fact that size and height will affect the cost of labor, timber, and other materials.
One of the most appealing and fundamental fence materials on the market is aluminum. It does not provide the level of security that the majority of homeowners require, but it is relatively inexpensive to maintain. Furthermore, maintenance is essential for an aluminum fence during installation if you’ll decorate and paint it.
If you’re looking for a strong, durable, and inexpensive fence to install in your yard, chain-link is the way to go. Chain-link fences are also made of woven wire and come in different styles. They can be used for privacy or security purposes depending on how they’re installed. A chain link fence is easy to install because all you need is a shovel, pliers, and some measurements.
A split-rail fence is a type of fence made from split logs. These fences are most commonly found in the eastern United States and are made by splitting logs down the middle, then laying them on top of each other to create a fence. They’re easy to build and maintain, but they do require some maintenance along the way more on that later.
While building this type of fence can be done with very little skill or experience, it can be difficult if you do not know carpentry or construction at all. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, consider hiring someone who does have these skills!
Barbed Wire Fence
Barbed wire is a type of fencing that consists of twisted, sharp-edged strands of metal. It is usually made from steel or iron and comes in many different sizes. Barbed wire has been used for many years to keep animals out or in, but it also serves other purposes such as keeping people away from dangerous areas and preventing theft in areas where valuable goods are stored.
One benefit to using barbed wire fencing is that it’s relatively cheap to install compared to other types of fencing, it’s less than $1 per foot compared to $2-$3 per foot for chain link fences. This makes them ideal for people who want an inexpensive privacy fence without sacrificing aesthetics or strength.
If you want to keep animals out of your yard, consider building a hedge. Hedges are particularly good at keeping out cats, raccoons, and deer. You can use hedges to screen your property from your neighbors or passersby on the street.
If you want to add some greenery to your yard but don’t have room for trees or don’t have time for proper landscaping, then hedges may be right up your alley. They’re easy enough for anyone with basic gardening skills and will grow quickly once established!
To install this type of fence, you’ll need:
- 5-10 6-foot stakes (wooden dowels work well)
- Heavy gauge wire (at least 16 gauge) plus 18 inches more than twice around the total length of the fence line
- Wire cutter/crimpers + tape measure
Getting a PVC fence made for your home is one of the most affordable options. Such fences offer security from the outer world in place of wooden pegs and pickets. PVC sleeves increase the stability of wooden fence posts and save on labor and material costs. Additionally, screws and adhesives can be used to attach PVC stakes to crossbars. PVC fencing is durable and it can last for many years. It is resistant to snow, rain, and sunlight.
The cost of installing a fence depends on the type of material that you choose. Many factors can affect the price, such as the length and height of your fence, where it’s located, and how difficult it is for you to access certain areas. The price may also vary depending on whether or not your yard has existing structures or trees that need to be removed first before starting construction work.
The easiest way to know if a fence will fit into your budget is by calculating how much money you have available upfront, this will help determine what size project works best for you and your family down the road. If you need an estimation, you can contact a professional fence installation service and they’ll be able to answer every question you have.
