Unless the high fence is going to be obscuring a truly brilliant natural view, no matter where you go in the country, whether it is highly urbanized centers or the rural outskirts, the fences and walls tend to be getting higher and higher in fairly well-developed residential areas. All across the country, socio-economic conditions have improved quite considerably and the budget is now there to undertake a high urban or high desert fencing installation.
Then again, high fences never really need to obscure good, panoramic views. A security conscious installation is meant to add value to the property, not allow it to decrease in value, and obscuring a great view could do that. Fences are wired, meshed or metalized and coated in decorative vinyl that allows these fences to weather all storms. The fences last longer and there is less need for repairs down the line.
Although it must be said that no matter what the cost or the circumstances, the responsible property owner always does well be scheduling at least one maintenance inspection a year. During that inspection, any small nicks can be quickly repaired, thus preventing the prospects of allowing the cracks to widen. Never mind what kind of fence is being installed and no matter the materials, always make sure that it is just going to be strong and sturdy and reliable.
It will be sustainable too, of course. Now, the idea of having a high fence is quite easily motivated. It is security, security, security. No burglar will want to breach a six-footer. Too much time and trouble. And even if a low fence with electric security enhancements is installed, that can still be breached. All that needs to be said then is this. The higher the fence, the better the security.
