“If you have kids or pets to keep in, (or out!) or just want some privacy from the neighbors, building a DIY fence is a great way to save money in your landscaping. We have a round up of some great DIY fence projects for you, but also a couple of tips to keep in mind…
- Always call your local utility company and have them come out and mark your lines BEFORE you dig. Nothing will stop a DIY project faster than hitting a utility line. Not to mention, they could charge you for the damage… Don’t DIY the utility marking!
- Make sure you are willing to be flexible with supplies. For instance, a tutorial may suggest one type of wood that is common in their part of the country, but expensive in yours. Ask your home improvement store for suggestions.
- A fence doesn’t have to be just utilitarian… It can be an attractive part of your landscape.
- Remember safety when using power tools!!!
So DIY a fence project and make your dream yard one step closer to being exactly what you want!”
